Carl Frampton is ready to box clever and use his superior fight intelligence to beat Scott Quigg in Manchester on February 27th.
The IBF super bantamweight champion was keen to point out that he posses a real boxing brain and the type of fight craft that developed over a life time of fighting when the pair partook in day one of a three day press tour in London yesterday.
The former National Senior amateur champion believes his experience in the vest and indeed the fact he has been steeped in boxing from the age of 7, will play a big part in his clash with the WBA title holder.
“My boxing brain is going to win this fight. He is manufactured, he doesn’t have a brain never mind a boxing brain.
“I had my first boxing bout when I was seven. I don’t know what he was doing at seven, probably still eating crayons,” Frampton said on the Thames.
The undefeated 28 year old Cyclone Promotions puncher wasn’t too complimentary to a fighter he has been linked with for over five years, but seems more motivated to wipe ‘smug looks’ of the face of promoter Eddie Hearn and trainer Joe Gallagher than to bust up the face of Quigg.
“Quigg is not a bad lad. I don’t like Joe Gallagher, I don’t like Eddie Hearn and their smugness is p*ssed me off a bit. That’s it really. I’m going out there to silence them too and I will.”
“Eddie can say what he wants but the only reason Scott Quigg is there with Hearn is because I left Hearn.
“It’s a fickle old business. when I was with him I was going to knock Quigg out now it is the other way around.”
