Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will meet for the IBF and WBA World Super-Bantamweight titles at the Manchester Arena on Saturday February 27 2016.

The eagerly anticipated showdown between the British rivals was announced live on Sky Sports News this afternoon with the pair putting titles, unbeaten records and bragging rights on the line in the blockbuster.

Belfast favourite Frampton took the IBF crown from Kiko Martinez last September and has defended the title twice this year, stopping Chris Avalos in Belfast in February before an exciting debut on US soil in May where he climbed off the canvas twice in the opening round to defeat Alejandro Gonzalez Jr.

Bury ace Quigg’s reign as WBA champion began in October 2013 and the 27 year old has racked up five successful defences in that time, stopping Martinez in his last outing in Manchester in July to follow wins over Diego Silva, Tshifhiwa Munyai, Stephane Jamoye and Hidenori Otake.

Both fighters and their promoters expressed their delight at setting up what promises to be the fight of the year.

“I'm delighted that we have finally got this fight signed,” said Frampton. “This is the fight everyone has wanted for years, none more so than myself. I'm the legitimate champion and I'm going to his backyard to defend my title because that's what champions do. On February 27 the fans will find out who the real champion is, I'm going to win this fight in style.”

“I've finally got the fight I've wanted for so long,” said Quigg. “February 27 will be the best night of my life. I've dedicated my life to this sport and I have never been more confident going into a fight, I know I will beat him in every department. This is a great fight for the sport and I’m delighted to bring it to Manchester and unify the division.”

“I am very pleased that we have managed to get this fight made,” said Frampton’s manager Barry McGuigan. “It will be a momentous occasion for British and Irish boxing. This is the fight the fans have craved and the one we have wanted all along. The atmosphere will no doubt be electric, but there is only going to be one winner on February 27, Carl 'The Jackal' Frampton!”

“Yes! All I can say is yes – get in!” said Quigg’s promoter Eddie Hearn. “This is been hard work but worth every second. I want to thank everyone involved for their desire in making this fight happen and now we have an event that will go down in the history of the sport. Two World champions, two fantastic fighters collide at the Manchester Arena. Can you even imagine the atmosphere, the tension, the drama? This is what it's all about, roll on fight night! Scott Quigg has all the momentum going into the fight and will be crowned unified World champion on February 27.”

Information on ticket on-sale dates and the undercard will be revealed in a UK press tour that will begin later in November.

I've always edged toward Frampton but I think Eddie Hearn is right when he said Quigg has the momentum.

Apparently one of the terms of the contract is that tickets are split 50:50 between the fighters. Not sure how that's going to work?

Could be a few fisticuffs in the crowd I think?

Quigg KO for me, just really see huge improvements every time I watch him fight and just seems the fresher and hungrier fighter. Also think he is stronger at the weight.

Probably a year ago I would have fancied Frampton, but will be a great fight whatever the result!

Post by: Red on November 02, 2015, 09:42:54 PM
I don't mind either fighter, but Quigg has always struck me as the hungrier fighter and the puncher of the two.

Frampton has seemed to have sat on the throne and looked down upon Scott, and that could be his biggest mistake in this fight.

Quigg has long been described as the hardest trainer and fittest fighter to train at Gallagher's gym - and I just don't think he'll be denied in this fight.

In closing I think Team Frampton are more interested in the payday than the fight, whereas I get the impression it's the other way round with Quigg.

I've lost count of the times he's bought his own flight to go and better himself at the Wildcard gym over the years. He's going to give it everything on the night - whereas Frampton has already let slackness affect him once in recent months when he blamed everything from making weight to a spongy canvas for going on the deck three times in America and looking awful. The reality is he thought he'd stroll it, and if he has any arrogance about victory in Feb, then he could blow it.

I know he's not everyone's cup on tea but Gallagher is the more experienced and better trainer. In a 50/50 fight like this you have to take all factors into account. Quigg/Gallagher will have a plan A, B and C I'm not sure the McGuiggan team have that in the locker yet and Frampton will have to rely on being able to adapt himself if it isn't going his way. Great fight this can't wait.

Post by: Dexter_Morgan on November 03, 2015, 06:47:30 AM
Quigg looks the slightly bigger man who makes the weight and then fills out more naturally this for me could have a big impact on the fight. I still think Frampton takes this he learned an awful lot in America and won't be so slack in prep this time around that fright may well play a big factor in this fight, 50/50 pickem sort isn't it?

I can't wait its going to be a cracker if I could get a ticket I'd travel down for this be a cracking night of boxing with an electric atmosphere.

Title: Re: Quigg vs Frampton | February 27th | POLL | Ticket information thread
Post by: AO88 on November 03, 2015, 09:19:18 AM
If Carl boxes I think he takes it on points, yes he was shabby in America but it may be a blessing in disguise to get such a shock early on in that fight. However he boxed lovely in some of the rounds that followed and it's his boxing skill that will see him home.

If he'd have come from that fight happy with his performance I'd be worried, but he was not and knows he was too eager to impress early on.


No way will he treat scott with the same contempt that nearly cost him vs Gonzales. His vulnerability to a left hook was shown in that fight though and I'm hoping he works on eliminating small errors like that.

I expect both guys to be at there best, and I don't think previous fights will mean a thing. They will both do what they do, and whoever does it best will win. Form etc counts for nothing in a fight which both guys have wanted so badly.

Huge fight and about time too, but anyway at least they've finally got it on.  I've voted Quigg stoppage but that is a vote with my heart, rather than my head.  I don't think you could ever write off Quigg but my head somehow tells me that Frampton may be his nemesis.  I sincerely hope not but the main thing is we get to see the fight  -  maybe in person, if tickets can be bought.

Reserved a hotel earlier and will probably book flights up tonight. 

Glad it's finally on.  I wonder if the trip to the US was a bit of a wake-up call as for all the talk that Frampton wouldn't be dictated to, they didn't even negotiate a neutral venue.  Although Belfast is closer to Manchester than where I live so I can't see it making a huge difference.  The 50/50 ticket split, if accurate, is essentially meaningless in the era of the internet though.

It's such a 50/50...before their last fights I was convinced that Frampton stops Quigg but now it could well be the other way around. Just hope it's a good scrap, I expect they will both turn up to hurt each other. Great fight.

Why would you want to sit with us Quigg fans when yours are 'The best' with the best atmosphere in boxing?

Same here.  For all McGuigan was saying about wanting it on ITV, I can't see any way they'd be willing to stump up the necessary cash.  I imagine it's because Joshua v Whyte will be announced as PPV today so they are leaving the confirming this this one as PPV for a bit.  They wouldn't have had the signing on Sky if they weren't going to be making money from it.

If I'm in the quigg section (all three rows of it), I'm hoping to be next to bonters so when he falls asleep I get more arm room.

Chances are it will be the 60 or so quigg fans who through no faults of there  own will be sitting amongst the jackal army.

We had bother at his last fight because people couldn't keep their mouth shut shouting about Frampton. I'm keen to avoid a repeat of that, particularly as the atmosphere will be more charged at this one and because it reflects poorly on me.

Need to have a think about this.

Well I'm having just short of that many so going to be a lot more than 60. There will be a lot of Irish fans there but that's only because they have no one/ anything else to cheers about!!

As for the slagging the Irish it is all Banter, its not meant to offend. I have 'proper' Irish mates on here and i regularly have a dig like they do with me.

Quote Irishpaddy.

"Oi Faulks when you giving me my six counties back you English Motherfucker"  Team Gerry

So if anyone gets offended apologies, it really isnt meant to.

Truth be known i have massive respect for the fact you potato farmers will bring that many over to this.. Proper Support.

But thats the last time youll get anything remotely respectful out of me until after the war  ;)

Thing about irish support is they create a decent atmosphere.

I remember khan v m cc loskeys  a fee years ago and to be honest it was about 60-70 pc fan base in the irish man's favour.

And it was a cracking atmosphere,one of the best I've experienced , even if the fight was ended prematurely.

ah well  . .

Anyone heard anything about how tickets are going to be sold. I really don't want to have to sign up to Hearn's Fightpass if I can avoid it. First fight that's really wetted my appetite since Froch v Kessler 2 @ the O2.

If they do manage to come up with a way of restricting how tickets are sold on I want to make sure I get one as I would imagine between the Touts and Frampton's Mainland based NI fans it may be hard to get a pair amongst the Quigg fans.

The whole 'Ireland vs England' thing that they're building for this fight is a bit ridiculous. The harsh reality is that the Irish will never  really consider Frampton one of their own. Not like a Steve Collins, Bernard Dunne etc The chap gets little or no coverage by the media in the south. You walk into a pub in Dublin and nobody has heard of the guy. McGuigan can play the Irish card all he wants to help him break America but a lad from Tigers Bay will always find it tough to get proper support and recognition in the South.

It's an intriguing fight. I expect Quigg to be outboxed for the majority of the fight and Frampton to get the nod on points, but Quigg definitely has a shot. The current odds seem fair to me, with Frampton 4/9 Quigg 7/4.

I'm a bit surprised by the confidence some people have in Quigg to do a number on Frampton. A lot of it seems to be coming from both fighters  previous outings. Take away a shaky first round, I thought Frampton boxed great for most of the Gonzales fight. Frampton totally outclassed the chap.

Completely agree. Stoking the UK vs Ireland fire will only serve to make the arena feel like some kind of volatile bear pit on the night, and boxing events can be highly charged enough as it is.

Personally think the odds there for Frampton are too short. I don't see Quigg being outboxed either, he's improving with every fight and he has the physical advantages going into this, so I think Frampton needs a special performance to outbox him and get the nod on points. I don't think the fight being in Manchester has any bearing on a potential decision, I just think the two of them are very evenly matched but Quigg is the one showing the improvements based on recent performances, is arguably the bigger puncher and has the range to keep Frampton at bay early doors, make him chase the fight and then possibly look to take him out late in the fight.

I'm firmly in Quigg's corner for this one as he's a local lad so there may well be some bias here, but I do believe Scott will take this one.

Great that the fight is finally on though and all questions will hopefully be answered beyond any dispute.

The whole 'Ireland vs England' thing that they're building for this fight is a bit ridiculous. The harsh reality is that the Irish will never  really consider Frampton one of their own. Not like a Steve Collins, Bernard Dunne etc The chap gets little or no coverage by the media in the south. You walk into a pub in Dublin and nobody has heard of the guy. McGuigan can play the Irish card all he wants to help him break America but a lad from Tigers Bay will always find it tough to get proper support and recognition in the South.

It's an intriguing fight. I expect Quigg to be outboxed for the majority of the fight and Frampton to get the nod on points, but Quigg definitely has a shot. The current odds seem fair to me, with Frampton 4/9 Quigg 7/4.

I'm a bit surprised by the confidence some people have in Quigg to do a number on Frampton. A lot of it seems to be coming from both fighters  previous outings. Take away a shaky first round, I thought Frampton boxed great for most of the Gonzales fight. Frampton totally outclassed the chap.

Given Frampton background ,it's actually a bit insulting to label.it irish/England thing to be honest.it's lazy promoting to be honest and almost tribal. ..

Why the F*ck does Eddie throw this into an already pumped up crowd!!

You know why? The sneaky Essex twat will want it to go off, great publicity and marketing ...

F*ck our safety Eddie, you stir it up, may as well throw Him in with Selby, get the Welsh up for the carnage ..

Anyone who knows me knows I'm hardly the timid type, but I ain't no thug and this will be an absolute bear pit.

Might upgrade to floor/ring because of the Missis or might even sack it off completely . & for me to contemplate that means it's going to be bad  >:(

I'll take that  8)

I've no fear for m own safety, I can take a beating though my Missis means the world to me,
Only takes one of those twats to throw a drink at her and I'd go f***ing mental. So its all about weighing it up. Options are.

Take Missis sit in amongst and just hope for the best

Take Missis and go ringside (probably at present)

Talk Missis out of it and then there's no issue .

The last option is difficult as I go a lot of shows and don't take her to them all but she's really really keen for this as my pal on here is taking his wife as well.  so fighting Leeds might be easier than not taking her.

Given that every televised sporting event from Leeds I seem to watch that Hearn is involved in (Warrington and Premier League darts) contains anti-Manchester songs seemingly on a loop, there's no way that it doesn't kick off big time if there are a contingent of Warrington fans in the arena on 27th February.

We were sat in front of about 300 Warrington fans when Crolla fought John Murray.

I'd never heard of him before that night but they were vile, spilling beer everywhere and just singing Munich and anti-Manchester songs.

Thankfully he was low down the card and they pissed off after he fought. If they'd been behaving that way later when the arena was fuller it would undoubtedly have kicked off.

Anybody, without exception, who sings a tribal football song at boxing is a weapons grade bellend.

I picked up ringside tickets to Carl Froch vs Tony Dodson for me and my mrs back in 2006.

Naturally we'd both been at Carl's fights before and there was no trouble at all really.

But after he knocked Tony out, there was about 500 Liverpudlians who started throwing coins, and then everyone started charging at each other.

The next thing a big metal chair came flying at us, but luckily I managed to stand behind her in time.  ;D

Obviously both guys will sell more for this fight than they will vs anyone else. Big fights I think give a false perception of a guys support.

Froch vs groves 2 sold because of the fight, neither Carl or George would sell anything close to that in the average fight.

Anyway as it's signed, who cares. Common opinion just seems to be it would be better without warrington on the bill.

I asked McCracken about hatton mayweather - and he got onto the ticket prices, then said its not worth it - that if you really want to watch a big fight blow by blow, to savour every second - then TV is the only way.

He said he was doing corners (Jon O'Donnell maybe?) for Oscar vs Mayweather undercard and he said despite being right there near the ring, he enjoyed watching the recording back on tv more.

Nowadays being poor with kids to support, that comment gives me comfort as I'm hunched over a stream with a can of Tesco smart price lager in my hand.

If Scott Quigg was Northern Irish he would be as big as Carl. You look at any good fighter who has won a World Title or one of the best in their sport then they all jump on the bandwagon which is understandable as they are a small country so less likely to have as many Boxing Star’s to follow as you would have in England.

I cannot stand Hearn but Barry McGuigan is a complete clown. You can tell from the press conference yesterday that Quigg / Hearn forced this fight – seemed more concerned about who was being piad the most, first name on the poster etc.

But when his own guy struggles to shift ten in his home town it's not such a great point.

It is really because you are comparing a literal number to a metaphorical number.

In fairness it seems like both fighters have conducted themselves well as they have done in the past.  I've got plenty of time for both, just a shame about the others at the table.

I would agree with that totally, both fighters are decent lads (Hearn, McGuigan and Gallagher are tits) who clearly love Boxing although I think Carl has maybe the slightly bigger ego but not surprising when you have Barry McGuigan banging on about how many tickets he sells every 5 minutes!

I just think if you switched both guys around they would sell exactly the same. It’s not like Frampton has any charisma or anything special other than his Boxing skills – pretty plain guy.

Doesn’t talk much or have anything outside of Boxing that makes him particularly attractive to the wider public outside of Northern Ireland like the guys more recently who have shifted tickets in the UK like Hatton, Froch, Khan to name a few.

Really struggled for three minutes in which he fought very badly in, the rest of the fight he won with ease.

It's like saying floyd struggled with Mosley because he had a bad first round despite winning the rest easily.

He hardly struggled. He totally outclassed Gonzales all being said and done. But I know what you mean.

I agree though that Frampton is more riled up than usual. But he has been like that before previous fights and pressers recently. I'd like to see McGuigan take a backward step now and leave the shite talk to the fighters, but not likely.

Nice to see Frampton being honest enough to say that the winner won't be considered the best in the world despite it being a unification. Something Sky won't be too happy about!

Just to give you an idea, I work for an organisation that processes volume work. Thousands of transactions in a very short amount of time, all done online and all done electronically.

There is absolutely no way on earth that this many tickets were sold in that amount of time for this fight. Guarantee they are held back for StubHub and FightPass.

I'm done with Matchroom now. They can get to F*ck as far as I'm concerned. If I can't get a ticket direct from a fighter I am not going to one of their shows.

Absolutely con-job.

Simple as.

Just to give you an idea, I work for an organisation that processes volume work. Thousands of transactions in a very short amount of time, all done online and all done electronically.

There is absolutely no way on earth that this many tickets were sold in that amount of time for this fight. Guarantee they are held back for StubHub and FightPass.

I'm done with Matchroom now. They can get to F*ck as far as I'm concerned. If I can't get a ticket direct from a fighter I am not going to one of their shows.

Mate was just about to rant exactly the same .. f***ing Eddie Hearn is a robbing twat, he's just as bad as ****** main event always cancelling so you were stuck with shit.

It wont do much but im drafting an email to watchdog etc..

This is blatant theft or is it technically Legal?

Ive seen Eddie a few times and always spoke to him, right now i'd be tempted to spit in his face

Yeh that just didn't seem normal at all - I have bought tickets for numerous events. Seems like people have managed to buy them though looking on Twitter.

I think I posted it on this thread a couple days back - create a fake panic that tickets have sold out, then tell everybody they were for sale on fightpass then use that to pimp out your fightpass brand.

You did indeed.  Essentially he's it's a bait and switch.  Handful of tickets on sale at 9am, once they're gone head over to Fight Pass or even better, their 'partner' StubHub where they cream of a decent percentage mark up on every one sold.

The Joshua fight at the O2 was even worse. That sold out instantly and to rub salt into the wounds. Joshua is sponsored by Stubhub. So that shows the link between fighter and company.

Joshua was tweeting himself, if you didn't manage to get tickets, use Stubhub.  You can't tell me that wasn't an inside job.

Barry's in charge of his own allocation. Eddies distanced himself from their allocation saying they are selling theirs separately.

Eddie just tweeted about 1100 tickets onsale to fight pass fans. All prices.

I meant last night on Twitter that Carl and Eddie were saying left side of the arena for Carl, right for Quigg.  Reality was if you tried to have a look on the arena map you'd probably have no chance of getting a ticket.  You just had to take anything that came up.

I guess if 1100 went on Fight Pass that would account for around 10-15%.  But that's still a large amount outstanding.

Lets be honest here this happens all the time with all major events supply and demand means they will fleece people out of double / triple the money.

It happens loads in Music as well watched a program where this lady camped overnight soon as doors opened she said "2 tickets first row" she was told sorry first 8-10 rows sold out .........no doubt to some ticket agency who can sell a £40 ticket for £150.

When all said and done the boxers perhaps should be given say 40-50 tickets each and that includes undercard fighters & media that would at the most mean 1k  tickets only have gone with the rest going to fans.

Tim is spot on the pair of them Eddie / Barry have lined they're own pockets at the expense of the fans.

I did notice this started to happen towards the end of Froch's career. Up until the 2nd Kessler fight I never had a problem getting tickets exactly where I wanted them as long as I was online when they went on sale

Then Kessler I was way back in the stand & Groves 1 was lucky to get anything.

I know Carl got a lot more popular but not to the point in literally the space of 1 fight where I could sit where I wanted in a 10,000 arena in Nottingham to struggling to get a ticket in the 20,000 O2 Arena

I was just thinking along similar lines in that I remember getting 4 tickets exactly where I wanted for Hatton v Tszyu which was a bigger fight in every way.  Agree with what you say about Froch post-Bute as well.  Now it seems to be they way with all "big" fights.

Must be galling for FW seeing the histrionics over this fight when I seem to be getting an e-mail a week reminding me that Lee v BJS tickets are on sale.  A fight which is almost every bit as good potentially.

For this fight I've had about 4 times that many. I could have sold 10 times more if I'd put it out there I could get them but I don't want a Ringside Robbie style ulcer.

Bottom line, people are way more interested in this fight. They are good people to deal with, no messing and very organised. I've bought tickets direct for years and I put my order in 48 hours after the fight was announced and they've sorted it no fuss at all.

Fair point, and that's deplorable.

However, am I right in thinking you need to know what seat, block, row you are in before putting them on StubHub? Nobody who has bought from Quigg will know that, they'll just know the prices. Logistics are still being finalised.

And they certainly wouldn't have known them at 10 seconds past 9am when they went on sale on StubHub yesterday.

Looking very much like Hearn isn't telling the truth or Frampton put his allocation on there - or both.

No problem thanks for explaining. I was probably taking hearn's interview at face value when I should have known better.

Like i have said in another post I have never had a problem getting tickets for boxing pre matchroom in this country so something is obviously going off. Although Hearn will no doubt put that down to how he has revolutionised boxing despite having nowhere near the stars Hatton and calzaghe were

There are face value tickets on Eventim in Blocks 114 and 103 now including front row seats (£215 and £318 tickets).

No one use this information to be a bastard.

I've been in spitting distance of Hearn at some shows, I would say next time I go to one I'd ask the direct question as to why he rips off us genuine fans, but looking at the latest prices for ringside seats I can't afford to hit him with a baseball from the seats I can secure.

If I go to a fight live I want ringside but prices have more than doubled since Hearn got his monopoly

This doesn't surprise me. I had two or three people looking to get me tickets as I knew it would be a mad rush, one got me 8 tickets, turns out she bought for Crolla/Perez! I was gutted when the error came to light* but they did a full refund and it's already in my account. I had expected to lose booking fees and associated so was well happy when a full refund came in for what in essence was my cock up. Considering this info, and looking on Twitter others saying Matchroom put a wrong link up, it now makes sense.

So if there's any spares to be had from anyone on here, I'm also putting my hand up (Thanks for Eventim tip too)


* Blood was shed.

To my mind they were the best tickets you can buy at the front of the lower tier, opposite the ring. Obviously there aren't many people that want to pay over £300 to sit there though, me included!

I wonder where all of these tickets suddenly appeared from?  I'm not buying that they are 'production' ones as Cyclone are trying to spin it.  Maybe business on StubHub is slower than expected.  Great for anyone that has picked one up face value but I imagine it won't be much consolation for some who even with a face value ticket going isn't viable as travel/hotel costs will be prohibitive this close to the event.

Frampton seems obsessed with the crowd. For me, he's the one that seems on edge, bit insecure and more likely the one that will lose his rag, make a mistake and get caught.

Quigg seems genuinely confident whereas Frampton seems a bit forced.

The Gloves Are Off format is already a tired format because it is being rolled out for any fight of note.  This is a good 50/50 fight but I don't need to sit through half an hour of Frampton saying that Quigg has got Rigo's belt for the umpteenth time and that he will have some fans in the arena to make me more interested in it.

I thought Carl was nailed on until I was ringside for the Avalos fight. I know that sounds weird after that performance but I was in row 2 next to his corner he is unbelivably naive on the inside if Joe has studied him in that particular facet of his game I'd tell Quigg to walk him into a lazy clinch and have all the fun he wants.
 The there was the last performance and of course the fact that neither really havent faced a top opponent.
 Its a no play for me and I wont be watching it as I'll be in Germany for Ola V Huck. £131 all in fight ticket flight and hotel. Thanks Cyclone but you can stick your £800 ticket plus handling fee up your harris

When I saw this had been confirmed I said to my brother we could have headed over to that and saved ourselves a stack of cash.  Ringside tickets were less than we paid to be in the corner of the lower tier for the MEN.

I've not watched it because I feel exactly the same.

It's a great fight so I don't need to be sold it.

I know one of the fighters and the thing that interests me about him is his obsession with the sport, which would make him dull. I don't care who is getting paid what, who will have the most support in the arena and they are both avoiding Rigo no matter what they say. None of that matters on the night.

Definitely looking forward to the fight.  There just seems to be no real momentum any more in boxing, unless it's just that I've changed.  I could sure as hell do with another Naz or Hatton to get the juices flowing again.  I had a look last night to see what fights were on.............fook-all yet again.  I shall be there for the purpose of lending Quigg my support, plus the social event with a number of friends I don't see so often.  But I'll never be a really dedicated Quigg supporter I don't think, not in the sense of my support for the earlier mentioned boxers.  Finding it really heavy going to drum up any huge enthusiasm these days, since boxing is now a business and money rules.   :(

Watched it though didn't expect
Much and wasn't disappointed, I always knew Quigg was first and foremost a boxer and would never be a celeb. He's just not that way out but I didn't realise as I didn't really follow him much but how boring and down in the mouth is frampton.

He could win the lotto and he'd still be a miserable sod. I don't know if this is all an act on his part but if it is he's good at it..

Sticking with Quigg ko

Quigg come off second best he doesn't have the personality to come across with any conviction when he talks. He was trying to be little Frampton but was made to look a bit silly. Johnny Nelson really seems to go soft with Matchroom fighters never puts any stinging questions in like he does there opponents. I thought he was terribly biased against Dillian Whyte tonight he was a bit less biased but a bit pro matchroom in his questions.

Not saying your wrong just I viewed it differently .

A pretty terrible watch with neither of them looking great. I can't stand these gym rumour stories. Fighters are going to get clipped in the gym and they may not always be 100% in shape or focused when sparring. It's what happens on fight night that counts. We know that Frampton was put down in his last fight and that Jamie Arthur put Quigg down in 2012. These were both a surprise and fans of either fighter will think their man wouldn't have been down if they'd been facing these opponents.

I still think Frampton wins.

Frampton boxes he wins, if he gets dragged into a brawl he gives scott his best chance. For me it's that simple.

We seen it with I think salinas that Scott can be comfortably outboxed and since then he's not fought anyone with a remotely similar style from memory. I think against a top level boxer who can move he struggles to be effective, and frampton is good enough to repeat that.

I think Carl coukd win quite easily just going in and out without the need to try and force anything. Scott telling Carl don't run in my view is an admission of that.

I guess we will see on the night....I think Carl would welcome a scrap though...he has a serious equaliser with that ove the top right. Still think Quigg is the sweeter boxer.

I'm on the side of Frampton being the better boxer but to win this fight he needs to maintain concentration throughout I don't see him hurting Quigg unless Quigg switches off.

I'm thinking because of Quiggs reach advantage Frampton needs to be careful not to catch a left hook moving in, this really is a 50/50 fight and even though I'm a Frampton fan I'd be torn where to place my money.

At the moment it's heart says Carl head says Scott. History usually says my head is more often right.

It should be a good fight it really is a pick em fight if pushed I'd say Frampton is more talented but if you switch off that means nothing.

They really do need to stop the gloves are off its all the same and I'd keep Quigg away from the mic he doesn't speak well at all.

I also saw the media tour I now know what people mean with Eddie saying I had 4 pints of banter juice very very cringeworthy it was terrible!

They only released listing for the 27th today and to be honest I've never checked this early before. But for the last few I remember Fury/Wlad, Josh/Whyte, Kovalev/Pascal. They were all up whenever I checked. I hope you're right and its picked up at a later date, otherwise I won't get to see it, not live anyway.

Frampton loses this by being stupid if he's going too.

His vulnerability is the left hook which was shown to him last time out, if Shane and he fail to correct that then it's frightening.

Not really he also added that he'd been dropped by a body shot via Stevie Bell. It was Quigg who got all in a fluster and went for the water when Frampton pointed out how hed been schooled by a much smaller fighter

I think people are viewing things with tinted glasses. The whole build up has been a lot of bitching, Carl just seems to have been the most uncomfortable all the way through this process and including the Globes are Off which is becoming a very boring show now!

Personally think it is a close fight, would have picked Frampton 12 months ago but right now Quigg just seems the more confident fighter and think that may be the deciding factor come fight night!

Title: Re: Quigg vs Frampton | February 27th | POLL | Ticket information thread
Post by: Red on February 22, 2016, 05:14:04 PM
Sold out in 6 minutes

6 mins = 360 seconds

Divided by approx 20,000 tickets is 55 individual ticket sales every second or more like 22 per second if they are buying 2 tickets.

Or it could be  one company is buying 10,000 and the punters scramble for the other half.

Logistically it's impossible to sell that many to punters in just a few mins, because the way the web servers work is that there will be a reservation period when you click on the arena map and buy your tickets. It's a nightmare getting that far with web traffic in the first place and then once there it will kick you or time out.  Only people armed with the software that can do hundreds of simultaneous transactions at once (touts) will be able to get through the thousands of individuals. Some will be lucky, but this approach is not really geared up for regular fans as it's heavily exploited and it's an issue all popular events, not just boxing.

The ticket prices stopped this from being a genuine sell out (outside of the tout scum). To me it was no great shock and I'd pretty much of paid whatever I'd had too. But to many casuals the idea of paying 100 or 150 pound for not a particularly great seat will I seen put a load off.

If either Frampton or Quigg manage to win decisively, I think they should go for the Rigo fight. He'd be best part of 36 by the time of the fight and had nearly 500 amateur fights. He's been dropped a couple of times in recent fights and with everything he's done he won't have experienced a Manchester/Belfast crowd in full voice.

Ultimately if the likes of Quigg/Frampton don't catch Rigo at the right time someone like Dickens will.

Tickets are now going below face value on sites like Twickets etc and people selling the odd spare. I've seen £150 tickets being offered for £100. Touts and stubhub jumped all over this, realised there's not much "casual" demand at these prices and now can't shift, hence them back on official sale. £200 for a night at the boxing per person is scandalous.

I'll turn up on the night with £50 and pick up a seat, I have no worries.

Not that this is the best benchmark, but there is no chat about this fight in my office. Usually the casual fans are all over the sky hype machine, but there seems to be no interest.
Even different groups of mates often meet for a sky box office event with food and beers at one of their flats but not in this case.
regardless of whether this is a good fight or not, from a business persective it could well bomb at the Box Office.

It's being discussed in workplaces etc over here as Frampton is a big draw here (yes I know we don't have loads of other fighters) but I accept he's not going to be much of a household name outside of N.Ire. In addition Quigg is not a household name either and many won't know anything about either or who they've fought. Sky need a well known charismatic English fighter for this to do massive numbers and Quigg is neither. They simply haven't been in enough high profile fights or had enough exposure over the last few years for the general public to jump on board. In addition they're not Team GB Olympic gold medalists nor do they have the popularity of a Ricky Hatton.

Yeah agreed very little talk about it. It's just starting to pick up now as there were a few bits in the papers last week and I assume Sky are now starting to hype with open workouts etc etc. But I think at the moment only a small number of us popping down the pub to watch it compared to Joshua v Whyte.

Gutted about the ticket prices now, tried to get the tickets at the time now too late to sort travel up there etc.

I think part of the issue is that the 'casual' fans have rarely been interested in the fights and fighters at the lower weights.  From memory, this must be the lowest weight fight that Sky have put on SBO.  Naz at 126 was one of the few guys few guys below 135 to really cross over and even then, in general it tended to be 147 and above until Hatton came along.

Yeah, I was thinking this too. I don't know if it's to do with the bizarre obsession with Heavyweights or what, but it's ironic that the one recent Sky fight that's actually deserving of PPV status doesn't seem to have the same buzz leading up to it.

I think part of the issue is that the 'casual' fans have rarely been interested in the fights and fighters at the lower weights.  From memory, this must be the lowest weight fight that Sky have put on SBO.  Naz at 126 was one of the few guys few guys below 135 to really cross over and even then, in general it tended to be 147 and above until Hatton came along.

Sad but true...spot on

Was there, he was smiling and seemed ok. His workout never gave anything away but neither did Carl's for that matter.

If either guy cries excuses after this it will do more harm than the actual loss.

Thought Frampton looked very very sharp heard the Quigg injury rumours earlier in the week however this stuff always kicks about on the week of a big fight. I thought Quigg looked in decent shape however Frampton for me if you can take much from short warm up clips looks like he's trained his butt off looks very focused and very hungry.

Frampton looks very sharp in the media work out and Quigg in comparison looked a little slow, but how much do you really want to give away in open workouts so it could well be deliberate from Quigg's team.

I speak for many when I say that many working class folk dont recover from Xmas until March / April.

Holding it in February has made it difficult to afford for a lot of people. Most households are at their weakest finacially at this time of year, after the spending hangover of Xmas combined with utility bills that always land at this time, and are often at their highest (gas especially after winter).

Not sure Quigg giving his % to Stubhub classes as "selling" either TBH. Eddie's priced it up wrong, too many fans keeping away. Nothing to do with popularity of each fighter, it's the fact he's set London prices.

I'm quite smug about Frampton not selling his allocation.

Was getting very bored of hearing how it would be like a 'home' crowd for him in Manx..

Quigg doesn't sell huge amounts, but outside of Naz (i think this has been mentioned) who does/did at the lighter weights?

As red says, bad timing, but then again bloody Haye sold well in Jan against a bodybag.

The under card is shocking and the price of the tickets was unjustified.

I would of travelled to watch this abroad or down South but I am glad its only 30 minute drive away as it'll be an in and out job.

Probably roll into manx circa 730, see some faces for a couple of hours, main event then home. After ive collected my winnings off Aaron and rubbed Jamie's face in his Team Frampton hat.

Anyone travelling up North in need of a hotel room let me know as I am cancelling 2 rooms in the Raddison tomorrow

They weren't even London prices until tickets for the Joshua fight came out.  Having tickets priced north of £300 to sit in the best  lower tier seats is daylight robbery.

Quigg sold his tickets out of the chippy, like he always does.

I personally got 80 odd from there. There was a Sunday when he handed them over to people and there were hundreds of people there.

Quigg might have only got say 3k and framton 8k for all we know.

Regardless good to know 'the biggest thing in boxing' (crowd wise) couldn't sell his share.

Perhaps there is a potato convention on so majority of his fans are busy

Team Quigg

Think I hear they received 4k tickets each....and they will have been marked as Quigg allocation and Froch allocation. Same when Froch faces Groves...the idea was that a ticket with an allocation was not to be sold on for a profit...Matchroom and the Sauerlands were not happy at how many Groves tickets ended up on stubhub and ebay. Red will likely have more info on this.

Find it crazy myself, not missed a fight at the MEN for a long time and disappointed not to be attending this fight as no doubt this will be an atmosphere close to the Hatton v Tzsyu, Calzaghe v Lacy fights at the Arena.

4k each..

I'd of thought Frampton would of had no issue selling 4k, I'm not having my usual dig here but its cheap to fly in and a cheap away trip for them.. Its a massive fight if your a fan of either man.

Certainly a lot cheaper than Texas..

Im kinda glad as i had visions of it being very hostile if the arena was 'split' and lets not kid ourselves its going to be brimming with pissheads..

Those travelling from Belfast will be boozing all day as will 90% of the manc lot.

I am just hoping for a cracking fight, some good banter and they applaud both fighters out of the ring..

I think all fighter's have injuries going into fights. Wrists, elbows,  knees - you name it.

It's usually cuts and viruses that stop fights. If you have broken skin then it could open up and you lose the fight - a virus could put you into bed with a sky high temperature and you can't move.

It's "back injury" that usually smells of bullshit. Although they do occur, it's one that is difficult to even prove.

I would always try and buy direct from a fighter if I can.

You know they're getting the money rather than it going to a promoter plus you save the internet arseache the day they go on sale plus £5 admin fees or whatever for ticketmaster, eventim or stubhub.

At 80 tickets bought that's £400 saved.

So since we are drawing nearer, how does everyone see the fight going? It really is 50/50 in my eyes, I just cannot pick a decisive winner as I really have no idea how the fight will go.

Everyone says Frampton will box and move to a comfortable UD then you have others saying Quigg will be too big and jab Framptons head back round by round before stopping him late on.

If I had to make a pick just now I am going to go with Quigg by SD, then Hearn & Sky have there super rematch on PPV in the summer in Belfast.

Both fighters and all involved with both will be hoping for a close fight, meaning another huge payday in the Summer - that will be the plan, they wont make the money they make this coming weekend again otherwise.

I can only see it going two ways, a mid round stoppage for Quigg..if it goes past 8 then I see it running to points and Frampton taking it.

Ive bet more on this fight than any other before, got odds of 12/1 for Quigg 5-8 back before the last round of fights in July. It looked too good to be true (at that point it hadnt been announced obviously). I think thats come in to about 8/1 now.

Temptation got me though last night though and ive taken 33s for both 4 and 9.

Really, really cant wait for this one...glad its a poor undercard too.

I think where you're sitting in the arena will sway your opinion on atmosphere. If you're a Frampton fan and sitting amongst other Frampton fans you'll say the support was all Frampton. If you was sitting with Quigg fans you'd think the Frampton support wasn't great and visa Versa.

To be honest who cares about support and who has the most fans. I don't think there's a single person that has a dislike for either fighter so Im sure that the whole crowd will be applauding whoever it is that wins.

It's a ridiculous power move because he'll never win. Quigg has probably told him to f*ck off, so what now pull out of the fight? Him and his team have set himself up to look weak. This all if its true of course, but every major media outlet covering the press conference is running with the story

Final press conference was predictable. The dressing room stuff is just posturing, other than that it's the usual nobody works harder and this fight is huge etc etc.

I've picked Quigg to win this showdown for a couple of years or more.

Frampton is smaller than quigg with short levers. He's also not as dedicated as Quigg and doesn't make the weight as easy it would seem.

Reports are Quigg had a nice sweat on during the open workout, whilst Frampon was bone dry - indicating he's cutting fluids to make the scales fit.

That approach leaves you weak down the stretch and lethargic. People mock Quigg for being thick or a chump, but he's as dedicated as they come and unless he gets cleaned out by a big punch, he wont be denied.

Possibly a slow opening round or two from Quigg then it all changes by 3rd onwards (is my forecast)

I've never won in a 2 horse race.

It's just unfortunate your prediction of a KO (though not sure to which fighter) is a 2 event market (KO or points decision).

Come on, give me a prediction I can take to the bank.

I personally thought Quigg looked a bit rattled during all of this and Frampton was playing him well just opinion. I'm going to go against the grain and say Frampton hands out a boxing lesson and secures a comfortable points win with Quigg slowed up by the 8th.

Carl did fifteen or so minutes on the pads with breaks inbetween wearing shorts and T shirt. Scott did about the same amount of time but less breaks and with a full tracksuit on.

It was very light as far as light workouts go, I'm suprised either guy was sweating that much.

Carl was just playing games telling scott he won the who will look away first, Scott was right to get him off and then it escalated a bit.

I don't dislike Frampton but man he's go some serious ego issues...swear the guy thinks he's royalty. Quigg seems a decent guy but he comes across a fool on the mic(he should let his hands do the talking) Gallagher, Hearn, Shane....cudnt give a F*ck about any of them tbh. Barry's a legend at the end of the day so fair play to the guy.

I've had k.o rounds 1-6 but couldn't guess which way...although I think Framptons big right could devastate Quigg if it lands flush.

Not really. The only motivation for Framptons camp for doing this is to get one over on Quigg, simple as that. Its about the principle for Quigg. A dressing room doesnt provide an advantage. McGuigan/Frampton shouldnt be allowed to get their own way at this stage just to try and get a petty mental edge. Its all a bit pathetic

I think where you're sitting in the arena will sway your opinion on atmosphere. If you're a Frampton fan and sitting amongst other Frampton fans you'll say the support was all Frampton. If you was sitting with Quigg fans you'd think the Frampton support wasn't great and visa Versa.

To be honest who cares about support and who has the most fans. I don't think there's a single person that has a dislike for either fighter so Im sure that the whole crowd will be applauding whoever it is that wins.
I completely agree! That's my point all this he sold this and he sold that is bullshit! My point from the start!

This is probably the most 50/50 fight we've had in a long time, based on that i'll be having a tenner on the draw but it's bloody hard deciding on a winner when i really think about it torn between Frampton on points or a Quiqq KO around rd 8, so may have Frampton points lumped in with Crawford and Ofalabi.

Quiggs team have made a lot about Frampton being knocked down in his last fight but they were flash knock downs imo and Quigg has been down himself from light punchers. He's vunerable to the left hook in my opinion and i can see what some people are saying when he's not as natural a boxer as Frampton. Concentration will be key to both here.

Team Frampton for me though simply because i've met him and he was brilliant and spend a few mins talking boxing with me. Is there a bit more to it with his dislike of Eddie too though>?

McGuigans have embarrassed themselves again as they have done for most of the build up. I am no Hearn or Gallagher fan for that matter but just so childish and cringeworthy everything about them.

only just watched the press conference and not read any comments here today, but seemed clear to me frampton is draining himself here looking at his eye sockets and gaunt features... quigg looked fuller and sipping water etc very much more comfortable physically and mentally

frampton comes across like a lad on twitter but a little boy in the company of men.

gonna stick with my original prediction, Quigg KO. maybe even earlier than many would expect.

I've found the build up to this one predictably boring. Both promoters and trainers annoy me, and I only find the fighters interesting when in the ring. The undercard is crap and the fan divide is stupid also.

All I can say is I hope the fight is a good one with no controversy as I could'nt handle the build up to a rematch.

Have to agree also, the build up has seemed to be more focused around the fighters teams and the supposed great fan base Frampton has and poor following for Quigg.

I have no doubts the fight is going to be great and in most peoples eyes bar a handful is 50/50 so we are in for a decent fight for however long it lasts.

Still sticking by my guns and going for Quigg by Late stoppage around the 9th/10th round.

I think the other one's some sort of accountant. I forgot about Haymon as well.

As far as I know Quigg only has Gallagher too pay? If so should end up with a fair few quid more than Frampton after all said and done.

This has been noted several times in youtube interviews that Frampon makes no decisions himself - he's not involved really in meetings, payments, financial affairs, that it all goes to Cyclone and he gets a cheque out of what's left.

Oh you forgot that McGuigan's daughter is apparently the cyclone admin woman or something - which must be another full time 50hrs a week career given the hundreds of shows and fighters they do.

In closing, I like Carl he's a nice guy and a family man - but I've said for a long long time that he has a very inflated ego with regards his own importance - and I think that's all because he has sycophants constantly telling him his greatness and ridiculing everyone else that wants to fight him. The amount of times he's talked about how popular he is, that "I'm the A-side" and saying Quigg is like the band Elbow and he's a megastar like U2 just underlines it.

He's looked down at Quigg from his throne of self-importance for a long time. He thinks Quigg is a moron and doesn't believe this guy can hold a candle to him in press conferences, arguments, fan base, profile.... but none of that shit matters when the bell rings.

If Quigg loses a decision or something, his fall wont be that hard and his profile will actually have improved because of the size of this show. Whereas Frampon's self-declared superstar status will take a massive amount of damage if he loses. Especially if he's halted.

So will trainer-of-the-week Shane McGuigan. He's probably linked up with Haye at the right time.

I forecast if Frampon loses and his confidences goes as a result, then he struggles in fights if he moves up a division - we will soon see the true love between them all.

Quigg has Gallagher to pay and the rest is his money. Perhaps some agent fees and outlay for training / sparring partners - but that's it. I dread to think how many tens of thousands of Frampon's wage will get syphoned away before he gets his slice. I bet it's at least 30-40%

Not to mention all the hotels, meals , travel, flights and stuff all coming off his purse.

Quigg is self managed. He has an agent - I think it's that twat Paul Speak - but from this it's just training expenses, Gallagher and Hearn to pay.

Plus he's shifted a lot of tickets already. That money will be in the bank now.

Regardless of how many people he has to pay and how many tickets he's sold for this fight etc... Frampton is largely correct in what he says (he just didn't need to say it every 3 seconds), he is a bigger draw than quigg, he is the more 'famous' if the two - especially in thier home countries, he is a big star in comparison.
However in fairness quigg is from gtr mcr which has seen multiple world champions over the past decade, and the most popular of the modern era. Scott was always going to struggle to get the kind of recognition that Carl would do in his home city.

On Saturday night whoever wins the fight would have done something no one else has managed by beating the other, and hopefully all this bollocks between the camps will be forgotten.

If however someone does give Eddie Hearn a sly dig (if only for how pleased he was when he called himself the arch bishop of banterbury) it wouldn't be the end of the world.

How he'll cope only being allowed to add 10lbs after the weighin IBF rules and that Frampton has done it seven times now

How well did he look the last time he did it? He looked pretty poor and went over a few times.  

It could well be taking a bigger and bigger chunk out of him every time he puts his body through it.

The fact they think Quigg will 'go through hell' because of it, is admitting that Frampon struggles badly to keep doing it.

What if it's of zero impact on Quigg? he seems to live the life 365 days a year and looked perplexed when they kept bringing it up. I dont think I've ever heard Quigg complain about making weight - yet its on the lips of Team Frampon all the way through this build-up. So it's obviously the focus of their minds and should be of concern.

Quigg has never had to adhere to the 10lb sanction as he's never fought for the IBF, I think thats what theyre getting at. Its something Quigg has never had to do before, not that it'll make the slightest difference

I can't see that someone of that size and year round fit like Quigg would put on more than 10lb after the weigh in.

Look at people like Brandon Rios and Ricky Hatton. They looked like death in fight week and piled on the pounds. If you look at them in between fights they ballooned up to 2-3 stone over their fighting weight. Quigg is not that sort of fighter, in terms of preparation and the life the live I'd say he's more similar to Carl Froch who looked after himself and was pretty much at the weight year round.

Both camps are as bad as each other - accusing each other of the same things e.g disrespect and not being funny when they think they are.

Quigg gets accused of being thick but i'm not sure Frampton's any better. The part where he played Superstition wasn't remotely amusing and then in his interview after he said something along the lines of 'if Quigg is the man/fighter he says he is then he wouldn't be bothered about a changing room........but it's either mine as the 'A' fighter or it's locked'.

Bollocks to biggest support, most annoying team, who makes the most money and who trains harder.

Fights on tomorrow lets just hope it's a good one (or a clear frampton win) and enjoy it. Spend far too long sitting round talking about stuff we should not care less about (who Carl has to pay).

I'll applaud Scott if he wins, but I'll be able to stomach the shit coming out of Gallagher and Hearn.

Big discussion on Frampon's weight :-

Spencer makes a salient point, saying that if Frampton has been at the weight all week, then having tried that approach himself - he will probably feel a lot worse than he normally does.

Coldwell also says that if this is something he's just decided to do for this fight (be low during fight week) then he doesn't know how his body will react - and that it could leave him chinny.

More like a Eddie Hearn and friends discuss a boxing match than a fans forum going off that panel.

I've just seen a picture of Scott from only days ago compared to today and the difference is strikingly obvious.

Think it's fair to say neither guy looks flawless.

Framptons weight issues are coming from the fact he was not dripping in sweat after a fifteen minute workout with break inbetween wearing shorts a t shirt. Yet quigg who took hardly any breaks and was wearing a full tracksuit sweats so Carl must be struggling?

I get it if people use Carl's last fight as a reason to suspect difficulties, but those workouts would not have had many on here sweating in shorts and t shirt let alone two hugely fit athletes. Maybe it's a sky thing to try to talk up the "skysports" fighter.

McGuigan admitting the dressing room request was all just an attempt to wind Quigg up. Barry keeps banging on about disrespect and then pulls these kind of school yard antics. Its the same from both sides but I'm not hearing Quiggs side saying they're being disrespected every 5 minutes.

This is Quigg's fight all day long. I said before I think Quigg will win by ko rounds 6-8. But now I think its going to be a blow out. Quigg rounds 1-3. I just think he is gonna be sharp as a butchers knife and find the punch early. IMO Frampton is gonna be all wound up and leave gaps for Quigg to exploit.

You see Carl pulling a Kiko? Dont see Frampton running onto a shot or going wild myself. Think people are getting carried away with Scott the monster puncher on the back of Kiko.

I was talking to my friend who trains at Leigh ABC he knows Quigg a bit he says the fight is a formality. He said Quigg will knock him out and it could be quick. I have always thought Frampton is the better fighter and I hope he wins but this past week I genuinely can't decide who I think will win. Its the best 50/50 fight to be made for many years.

Bit surprised the amount of people expecting quigg to blow frampton  away with ease.
I'll admit I voted for quigg via pts, but never thought he had the power, accuracy or nastiness to blow frsmpton away.
As the build up has gone in and I've watched more if framptons technique and quigg's, I'm now fairly sure Carl is too good.
Scott is s really good fighter and technically sound, but Carl does everything that Scott does but s bit better. He also does some things that Scott cannot.
Naturally Carl is a more complete fighter, he's also a bit nastier.

We've heard a lot about Scott 'living the life', and I think that's why he's got to where he is. If Carl has trained as hard he wins.

Frampton Ko rd 6.

I'm with you on Quigg power front. He was never talked off as a massive puncher before the Kiko fight.

I think Quigg has just as much, if not more of a chance to win this fight on points as opposed to a stoppage.

Either way I just hope he does the business and brings that ego of Frampton down a peg or twenty.

Yeah he hasn't really stopped anyone of note barring Kiko, Salinas for example has been stopped twice since. He's probably stronger than Frampton if that's anything to go on.

And the argument that Frampton is chinny can also be made for Quigg (Arthur and Villani) neither of who are big punchers.

It's going to be more of a chess match than we think I reckon, and it will be Frampton's more natural boxing which will eke out a points win I think.

Post by: wbamitch on February 27, 2016, 03:28:01 PM
Obviously love the fight and the timing does seem so perfect in terms of calling it as it did seem general perception that Frampton would be too much before Quigg's last performance where he finally got rid of any 'paper champ' claims by taking out a solid respected world level opponent in Martinez, of course Frampton had his struggles on the same night as well which has brought the fight a lot closer, I would still say Frampton is the favourite but probably by a 60/40 margin maximum.

I've changed my mind quite a few times coming into this and of course you have to gauge at fight week as well with the weigh in. I've gone from Frampton recovering from a slow start to his boxing taking over and for then him taking out Quigg with a single shot and now I'm at Quigg to come on strong after a slow start to overwhelm Frampton with his size and pressure with a relatively early stoppage.

I do think this one is over before any championship rounds, I really don't expect it go past 8, generally the view is as a boxing match Frampton has the edge over Quigg with the ability to be able cope on the back foot and movement but I feel Quigg still has a good solid variety of punches or combinations to work on Frampton with. Then on the power aspect where the early Kiko destruction seems to have suddenly made Quigg the power man in this fight, before that he would usually wear opponents down with his pressure and body work which I still feel is his most likely method of victory and route towards a stoppage. Of course his previous fight has got him respect in that department but I don't feel its particular something he has an advantage of Frampton over who is a solid puncher in his own right and I'd say probably more effective with a single punch/counter punch, and without looking at the records I would say there is more occasions where Frampton's one punch power has finished it over Quigg. The comment from Scott and Gallagher telling Frampton not to run did worry me a little bit, I hope that's not one what they are pinning their hopes on.

Onto the weigh in, I was glad to hear Scott seems to be getting a strong amount of support, whether that is just purely an England/Ireland thing for a large part, the fight does seem to be creeping into the general public's attention, still perhaps not quite as strong as it should be. Anyway, looking at them at the weigh in, as mentioned by a few I'd say they both don't look the best, personally I would say a bit more concerning for Frampton as I don't think he has looked right throughout the week building into the weigh in which has helped edge in making this difficult decision. You would think it may be both of their last fights at this weight and maybe a rematch down the road at a higher weight.

So with not much conviction I'm going to hope for and go for Quigg to take out Frampton earlier who I feel may be a bit weaker than usual after his battle to make weight. Quigg in 4. Can't wait.

After the morning check weight can the fighters then put on another few pounds (even if it takes them over)?

As far as I know they can put on what they want after the check

Yeh they can. Just interesting that Framptons camp were insinuating Quigg would struggle with the check weight but Carl was closer. Carls weight suggests to me he's had to make sure he's under it, Scotts suggests he wasnt concerned by it

Or Frampton knows how to do it right having done it before and Quigg has possibly done it wrong and left himself a bit short.

being that much under perhaps means he hasn't done it before so was concerned. Weight making I imagine becomes an art in the pros and something new like the check weigh-in can raise questions.

Quigg was interviewed about this and said he has never put 10lbs on rehydrating overnight

Team Frampton made a big deal about check weights, Quigg was completely not bothered. So I read more into Frampton than anything else.

Quigg looked like he always does at weigh ins, people are just thinking its new for Quigg to look like that - but he always has.

He makes weight by water-loading probably. Hits the weight for an hour then bounce back up. Frampton has been down at the weight for days which isn't good unless he naturally is that weight like say Froch. He was punching the air in triumph when he made weight which says a lot imo.

Regardless, I hope both are at their best, no excuses.

Quigg looked as he usually does at a weigh in. I think this fight is much more high profile so everyone's seen the weigh in for this but not really seen Quigg in his other weigh ins so think he looks terrible! I just want them to both be at their best and then no excuses like you said.

It was a forgettable fight.

Frampton deserves credit for trying to make a fight tonight. But he looked ready for the taking - but Gallagher was too blind to tell Scott to put the foot down.

When he was told he was down, he came out with a bee in his bonnet but it was far too late. He was too negative in the first half and blew it.

Congrats to Frampton, who was far from his best tonight but worked for it.

Salinas II from Quigg, which was stupid. Worst blueprint of his career to adopt.

I watched this on a very bad steam. But what was Scott doing....he needed to go for Frampton that was my game plan for him to win. You have to take these fights by the bollo**s and he didn't. What was Joe telling him in the corner? Great trainer but he had to go for it. I will watch it back tomorrow but not happy with the tactics. But Frampton did what it says on the tin.

Cagey fight but not a bad one in my view. Reports Carl broke quiggs jaw in the 4th.


There are loads calling Scott but I don't think it's a case of he just decided to do nothing, I think Carl just outboxed him and Scott could not get any rhythm or distance to do anything.


It's all too easy to say oh Scott should of started earlier, but to believe it's down simply to that is being very naive in my view.

Also I'm no fan of him but people can't call Gallagher for "not firing Scott up". It's the biggest fight of his career, he should never need anymore fire than that.

Made up Carl won, thought he was a clear winner. Feared the worst when the first card was given to Scott.

Quigg took stagefright. He learned nothing from the Salinas fight and gave away the first half of the fight. Terrible performance, its one thing losing when you leave it all in the ring but to perform like that again is almost unforgiveable.

Didn't end up watching it and by the sounds of it not too disappointed.

Read all the opinions of the ex pros and seen the IFL interviews and seems the the SD flattered Quigg and Frampton won it pretty comfortably. Looks like the novice trainer got his tactic pre and midfight spot on and the trainer of the year got them horribly wrong.

What's everyone's opinion on a potential rematch is it justified?

I had Frampton by 3, Quigg simply left it too late but even if he'd started earlier Frampton may well have adjusted accordingly.

Poor from Gallagher and I think Quigg was shocked when told he was 5 rounds down on sky cards after about 6 rounds.

can't see a rematch happening if I'm honest. Frampton has mandatories for both belts which will talk priority unless he goes to Unify the WBC belt which was won by Ruiz last night.

I still can't get over how dire the fight was night. It's in the same ball park as Audley vs Haye.

I bet those covering it for Sky all these weeks are sat having breakfast in the hotel feeling shell shock at what was promised on the press tour, the dozens of video interviews- and then what actually materialised.

Quigg followed orders too closely and Gallagher, for his experience read it absolutely the wrong way. Yes Frampton didn't land anything, but he was on the front-foot and trying. No sooner had he finally told Scott to go for it, Quigg turned into a very dangerous opponent, but it was waaaay too late.

I blame Quigg's team tactics for a dull fight , and blowing his chances at victory.

Not writing anymore, it deserves no more of my time.

But congrats to Frampton, he's shot now at super bantam and needs to go up to feather asap for LSC or Selby.

I have said previously but I don't think Gallagher is a top level tactician. He gets his fighters in great shape but tactically he isn't great. For all this talk of trainer of the year, has any of his fighters ever beaten any proven world level operators?

Onto the fight, as usual the hype out did the actual boxing. I don't think it was quite up to Audley Haye more mayweather manny. I think people's predictions were probably clouded by their dislike for hearn mcguigan and Gallagher. Neither fighter was a big puncher so points either way was likely to be the case. Although hindsight is a wonderful thing

It was a really poor spectacle.

I had Frampton winning comfortably but he didn't impress me.

Quigg's early tactics were baffling. He looked far too rigid and stiff and his hands were almost too high. His guard reminded me of how Gallagher used to have John Murray set up - high hands but zero head movement. He didn't use his jab anywhere near enough either and was just loading up from way too far out.

He outboxed and out thought Scott for the majority of it.

Even when Scott decided he had to try and do something it was hardly like he dominated the rounds. Carl stood and traded with him in some of the close rounds and in the view of many won the 12th.

Personally I'd rather Carl of just kept his distance and carried on doing as he did in rounds 1-8 but fair play to him.

quigg did nothing for the first 6 rounds.

not knocking frampton at all, he breezed it... just seems to be in these type of fights their skill levels negate each other and lead to a cagey affair, rather than opening up (like the later stages last night) and displaying all the skills but with a bit of raw edge to it. last night was just like watching them go through gym drills, not engaging whatsoever. we scream for 50/50's then neither fighter commits when we eventually get one.

Red summed it up perfectly in both his posts, there's not too much more to add so I should be able to keep it short.

I'm not one usually to complain about tense fights, I didn't have half the problems that many did with MayPac but this was a terrible showing from Quigg. I don't usually use this word that much but it seems like he froze last night, he just did nothing, I gave Frampton all the first 7 rounds as he was at least looking positve, as Red said he wasn't great himself and it did seem he was there for the taking if only Quigg would have started earlier.

We saw glimpses what we could have had in the last few rounds, Quigg landed some great body shots and took some good ones back from a clearly tired Frampton, fair play to him. Quigg hurt him in the 11th and maybe could have got the stoppage if he would have believed a bit earlier, Frampton had a smooth last round though.

Frampton did the job he had to do and I would say he should be looking to move up, as for Quigg I'm so gutted for him that he has to come out of this having regrets on what he did, not learning the lesson from his other tough fight with Salinas. Tough road back for him mentally.

Barry was very quick to downplay Rigo which if it isn't LSC then surely it has to be Rigo ??

I don't usually use this word that much but it seems like he froze last night, he just did nothing, I gave Frampton all the first 7 rounds as he was at least looking positve, as Red said he wasn't great himself and it did seem he was there for the taking if only Quigg would have started earlier.

We saw glimpses what we could have had in the last few rounds, Quigg landed some great body shots and took some good ones back from a clearly tired Frampton, fair play to him. Quigg hurt him in the 11th and maybe could have got the stoppage if he would have believed a bit earlier, Frampton had a smooth last round though.

Frampton did the job he had to do and I would say he should be looking to move up, as for Quigg I'm so gutted for him that he has to come out of this having regrets on what he did, not learning the lesson from his other tough fight with Salinas. Tough road back for him mentally.

Not sure I seen Frampton "there for the taking" to be honest. Sure he shipped the odd decent shot but fired back every time and on occasions produced the better work in the closing rounds. His legs at no point wobbled and concentration was always there.

Some of the lads I was with said they thought he was gassing, but I think he did enough to disprove that in the last rounds.

Each to there own, just how I seen it.

I wonder if Senior Managemeng at Sky question their own events and hype? It's different hyping super Sunday or Carling Cup final as you're not paying extra for it (in practice, assuming you're a subscriber), but the hype job on this in what was a seriously dull affair is remarkable.

Wonder if Smith pats himself on the back looking at the marketing campaign for a box office event or, does he, like the rest of us in our jobs evaluate himself after the event and think that was gash?

All that hype throughout the week. Needless grief between fighters and now a dislike to Gallagher who comes across as more of a muppet after each fight with his self promotion. Hanging onto a disagreement about dressing rooms FFS. Who gives a shit.

The only plus was Hearn's man got beat which sounds a terrible way to look at it. but that is the only plus side. Quigg cannot be on SBO anytime soon. Nice block but not a "super fight" fighter.

Be interesting which platform Frampton ends up on next.

I've said all along that I'm never gonna qualify as the keenest Quigg fan but that I would attend the fight in support of him and for the social side too.  BUT this was pretty dire to be honest, and might prove to be a large nail in the coffin of my attending fights in the future.  I don't blame those fans such as Aaron bigging up their man, the guy did what was needed and fair play to Frampton for his win.  But Jaysus Christ, what was Scott Quigg thinking about in there?  It always looks different live in the arena but for me, he gave away about the first 8 rounds?  Great defence, and taking loads on the gloves, but the general idea is that you throw some leather back as well, isn't it?  I was staggered at his inactivity and negative approach.  No criticism of Frampton but I shall always remember this one as the one that Quigg lost, rather than the one his opponent won.  The only thing Scott forgot when the fight started was his bloody white flag!  Lose the fight by all means, but at least give it your best shot!  I agree with others, it was dire.  Nothing very exciting on the undercard, regularly getting sprayed by beer from the dick-heads throwing the stuff from behind you, massive build-up and total defaltion with the spectacle itself.  And all of that after the scrum-down for tickets in the first place, several hundred quid for 3 tickets, a hotel room and spending money.  Pah, pish.  Ok PPV is a bind but it's a shite sight better than all that for me!   >:(

I find it hard to believe a fighter of the level of Quigg fought like a bum. He was doing absolute nothing at all and as for Gallagher how did he suddenly wait until the end of the 7th to tell his man he was behind. Its as though someone at Sky told him Quigg was way down on the cards and give him a gee up.
I have always liked Frampton the guy is a classy fighter he probably didn't fight at his best but he got the job done and as plenty of good options going forward. Gallagher and Quigg have done a lot of talking leading up to this fight and they come up ridiculously short when it mattered.

Gutted for Quigg, down to earth kid and devoted his life to boxing

Got to give the lad credit for fighting with a broken jaw from fourth and not using it as an excuse..

He got told at the end of the 6th sky hyad him 6 down, he was genuinely shocked.. That IMO cqan only fall at joes doorstep.

As a fighter you are not counting punches etc your busy sticking to the plan the your trainer gives you. Which in this instance was badly wrong.

I'm not saying quigg would beat Frampton in a re-match though if they had got the tactics a lot better we'd of seen a better fight..

Shame for Scott, was fighting back the tears but credit to Frampton, His team are horrendous but he did what he needed to do and got the Win.

Oh and the S/D was a little harsh on Carl, Even though he was hitting a lot of leather at least he was hitting

If quigg had started his attack in round 5 it would have been a different fight altogether. He waited too long to launch an attack and it was too late to pull it back.

Round 8 onward Quigg was a different animal and that's what was needed from the start.

One thing i hated. Frampton and the Mcquigan's were moaning that theY got a split decision. YOU JUST WON A WORLD TITLE FIGHT YOU F*CKING TOOL! I found that really distasteful.

How quigg stayed up off the uppercut that done his jaw is beyond me, it was a peach that would have seen off many a fighter.

I also think he's right in saying that the earlier he'd of pushed, the more likely he'd of been caught clean with similar to that uppercut.

They obviously thought to try and push the fight when Carl would be deteriorating, but as Carl was able to do as he pleases without wasting too much energy he looked pretty fresh the whole fight.

I think Scott being more aggressive earlier might have changed the fight, but not guaranteed in his favour.

Think both guys have been classy post fight. I felt for Scott as it was obvious how much it meant to him.

I would certainly have thought that Gallagher would tell his boxer earlier to throw some leather.  BUT, what boxer needs to be told this anyway?  If you throw fook-all throughout the round, you throw away the round.  Anybody knows this.  And if that was some kind of deliberate tactic, I truly despair.  Personally I just think Quigg froze on the biggest night of his career.  What was he thinking?  I don't think he WAS thinking actually, and nor was Gallagher, who probably froze as well.  After a few beers and a bottle of wine, I could see this was suicide, God knows why they couldn't

Maybe Frampton was right about Quigg not having a boxing brain. I think Gallagher should apologise to Quigg privately though, as he's got no excuse for not realising earlier that the plan wasn't working and that the fight was slipping away.

I'm saying all this though and still haven't seen the fight. Just going off other people's opinions  ;D

Look at Quiggs face when he was told Sky had him 6-1 down he genuinely felt he was doing enough. Gallagher is over rated IMO he is quite happy walking round with his fighters belts and wanting the limelight but his fighters never seem to adapt in fights when they are under pressure. Paul Smith's rematch against Abraham was similar he fought like a condemned man and was in survival mode from the opening bell at least Quigg tried to get back in it but it was just to late.

Great day out, top to see some of the folks from here past ans present.

Then sadly a shit main event. A fight that didn't live up to the hype, and a bad result. Dull for the most part.

And then capped off by Jaimie leading us a merry dance around Manchester, to finally find the club we wanted, which wouldn't let us in, presumably because dwarves are a safety hazard.

I don't think its been mentioned on the thread but Quigg delayed his ring entrance again stuff like this can be tactics but at the weighin IMO you could see the nerves starting to show on Quigg the rings walks showed the same and when the first bell went he froze pure and simple.

I listened to him being interviewed ( Quigg ) he admits losing the 4th and having to take the 5th of because of the jaw that's him down two rounds straight away how him and Gallagher didn't see or understand what the rest of us were seeing is beyond me.

Frampton was shaken but he was never properly buzzed or hurt in the 11th if anything that round took every bit as much out of Quigg if not more.

The boxer won on the night and Quigg had no answer to Frampton there's not a lot more to add to a fight that was highly forgettable.

And TBF Frampton raised that question in the build up of how quigg would cope with the huge crowds and the size of the event.
I think his lack of big event experience really tightened him up and by the time he loosened up the fight was after slipping away.
Quigg will come again though and maybe its a fight that could be revisited in a few fights time

Joe Gallagher as no shame he was on a Sky article earlier saying Frampton will be out for a few months and that he expects Frampton will vacate both titles and go and fight Leo Santa Cruz. He said Quigg will go up in weight and face Frampton straight away after recovering from injury and will do the fight at Windsor Park with the possibility that Frampton is the WBC Champion.
Firstly Quigg needs to rebuild and get some confidence back. Secondly why his he putting his eggs in one basket hoping Frampton wins the WBC title and that will make a fight at Windsor Park attractive for Quigg when in reality Frampton could face anyone in the top 10 and there will be a huge crowd anyway. Quigg would be lucky to get 15% of the purse if that happened he would have done zilch to have earned the fight while Frampton would have beaten another linear world champion at a higher weight. Gallagher is a absolute wanker and a shameless one at that. If he really thinks Quigg is that good and can win a world title at 126 he should tell eddie make a fight with Lee Selby and at least he as done something to make the fight a bit more worthy of being made.

He's British, just like the NI football team, there could never be no 'England v Ireland slant' on it as, there was no trouble, as their wasnt 10 years ago.

No different to say Kevin Mitchell v Ricky Burns or Ant Crolla v Gavin Rees.

But Mitchell, Burns, Crolla, Rees are all British, whereas Frampton isn't, he's Northern Irish. Don't really get your point. It's not too important anyway, I was just clarifying the point.

Your actually wrong, northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland .so it's part of the UK, but not Britain technically.
However a lot of Northern Irish folk will refer to themself as British depending on there aliegience/ Cultural upbringing.

Now if you know your political history you can either declare yourself as irish or British under the GFA

Being from the Republic - I can safely say Carl is not representing us. He's one of the new breed, like Rory McIlroy that don't really care, they've grown up as Northern Irishmen. They don't associate themselves as English or Irish...

I was shouting for Quigg to be honest... But my god did he fight like an absolute Pussy...

Agree. Frampton is a Northern Irishman/Ulsterman/Anglo Irishman, whatever way what to label him. He isn't an Irish Paddy. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. To be an Irish Paddy you must be of a Catholic background, and be born with a love of potatoes and stout. And Amhrán na bhFiann must be your National Anthem.

I'm sure Frampton has a British passport despite having the option of having an Irish one if he wanted. So he is more British than Irish. Again, that shouldn't be a bad thing in anyone's eyes. It just is what it is. I didn't have a choice to be Irish, I just am whether I like it or not.

Nationality only matters to bigots and small minded clowns. I have more in common with some people from Trinidad and Tobago than I do with some Irish, because of their personality. Every person is different, and nationality doesn't define a person.

But, yes, youre right. It seems to have gone off at a different angle this. Doesnt matter of what faith CF is. The point I was highlighting was that some were surprised there was no bother given its England v Ireland slant. I merely said there was no England v Ireland slant, just like when when NI football (thousands of them) visited Manc.. it was an all British affair.

Don't know about that mooreman,  he is after all a product of IABA elite performance team and after being to a few of us fights you will always get the synonymous with the Republic Ole Ole Ole chant but always followed by "stand up for the ulster boy"

But thats the thing with boxing , you dont always follow a guy just coz ye might share the same nationality. When hatton fought Magee I was roaring on Hatton or when McCloskey fought Khan I couldn't give a Hoot who won

Exactly - its the same reason I don't support McGregor. He's representing himself - not his country!

I think Frampton is a good example for Northern Irish people - particularly kids.... Be yourself, not who you're predecessors want you to be.

I actually just watched the fight back yesterday for the first time since it happened (I was sat up in the gods at the arena on the night).

Still think Scott should be kicking himself for his lack of activity early on because when there was actually some action later in the fight he looked not necessarily the boss but certainly the one more comfortable with the greater action.

I'm sure I read the punch stats had Scott landing 2 maybe 3 more punches than Frampton over the 12 rounds despite throwing more or less half as many punches? Makes a mockery of McGuigan's comment's about Scott having no accuracy.

Basically the first half of the fight stank but the last 4 or 5 rounds were more like what we were all hoping for.
