Promoter Frank Warren has invited Scott Quigg to compete with fellow Featherweights Carl Frampton, Josh Warrington and Lee Selby next year.

Quigg worked as a pundit for BT Sport during Frampton's homecoming in Belfast, and when asked in an interview on the brand new BoxNation Podcast about where the Bury boxer fits into the Featherweight division, Warren invited Quigg into the mix.

"Scott, if you've not got a promotional contract, come and join the party! Come over with us, it's where it's happening. You'd be a great addition to what we're doing. He's a lovely lad and he can be part of that," Warren told Steve Lillis.

After the fight, Quigg admitted that he would love a rematch with Frampton: "Listen, I'm always going to want that rematch. The only thing I can do is keep working on me, keep winning and hopefully it happens."

'The Jackal' took on Horacio Garcia in Belfast, and outpointed the tough Mexican over 10 rounds. Warren also reflected on Frampton's return to winning ways.

"Let's put it into perspective. First of all, he's been out the ring for 10 months," he argued. "He had a big problem with the fight that never happened [in the summer], and all the stuff that went around that."

Leeds Featherweight Warrington was also ringside, as he prepares to take on Selby next year, with the winner potentially in line to face Frampton at Windsor Park. Warren believes it is an exciting time in Britain in the 126lbs division.

"We've got this situation with the Featherweights. Josh Warrington is on board. Lee Selby boxes on the 9th of December at the Copper Box in London. [If] he comes through his fight, he's got his mandatory defence against Josh. That'll take place in late April," revealed Warren.
