Might be for a paper title but still a good matchup. This'll add fire to the Frampton-Quigg match which should be good if it happens

Rumours Quigg is changing promoter, which is definitely a good thing. Hatton needs to sort his sh[COLOR="Black"]i[/COLOR]t out.

Looks like staying patient has worked out for Quigg & Hatton,Glad for them now is the time for Quigg to step it up.
