Warren Says Quigg Overpriced Himself For Frampton Rematch

Frank Warren, the promoter for former two division world champion Carl Frampton, had some choice words when it came to former beltholder Scott Quigg.

Back in 2016, Frampton won a twelve round split decision over Quigg in their super bantamweight unification.

Both boxers are currently competing at the featherweight limit of 126-pounds.

Their contest was a bad clash of styles, with a real lack of fireworks. Quigg suffered a broken jaw in the contest and admits he was too cautious during the first half of the fight.

Earlier this year, Quigg lost a twelve round decision to WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez in a very grueling contest. Quigg suffered a broken nose, while Valdez's jaw was badly broken.

For the last two years, Quigg has been calling for a rematch with Frampton.

He was actively pushing to become Frampton's opponent on August 18th at Windsor Park.

But he was ultimately passed over, in favor of Australian contender Luke Jackson.

Warren explains that Quigg simply overpriced himself for the contest.

"Quigg seems to forget that he lost his last fight to the WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez. It's alright saying, 'Yes, I want the fight' but then when you say how much you want then it's just unrealistic. What he wanted for the fight was just unrealistic so that was it," Warren told the Belfast Telegraph.

Frampton also lashed out at Quigg's insistence to gain a big payday for a rematch.

"Quigg doesn't deserve the fight. I beat him and never got out of first gear. Scott Quigg doesn't have a fan base and he doesn't deserve another fight," said Frampton.

"This fight with Jackson is going to be a tougher fight because he's an undefeated fighter with momentum. Scott Quigg is looking a pay-day and I've already given him one of those."

I doubt Frampton wants to fight Quigg again, so doubt we'll see the rematch. Frampton knows that the first fight was tough and that he benefitted from Quigg being so cagey and nervous in the early rounds. This let Frampton…

No one wants to see that. The first one was boring enough.

Taking Warren's word with a pinch of salt.

[QUOTE=Fabes88;18929128]Say what you want but there’s no way you can convince me this Luke Jackson fight is bigger than a Quigg rematch[/QUOTE] Jackson is cheaper to pay. That's all this boils down to.

Quigg just missed weight and lost. He should be begging like a dog. But besides that I have no interest in seeing him rematch guys. Fight someone like Mares.
