Hearn reveals positve Frampton Quigg talks have taken place

Carl Frampton versus Scott Quigg is a bout fans want to see, but  a fight some say can’t be made.

However, Eddie Hearn claims he has lines of communication between the two not so friendly camps are open and positive noises have been made.

The super bantamweight clash is the most talked about clash in Ireland and Britain, but talks have very publicly fell through previously  and their was fears the mouth watering dust up would not be made.

However, Matchroom boss Hearn claims he has talked to PBC boss Al Haymon, who works as an advisor to IBF champ Frampton and Cyclone Promotions, and seems to like what he has heard.

A number of ideas have been put forward to overcome the impasse and Hearn is hopeful the fight can be made for either this winter or the spring.

“We have heard a lot of positive noises about Scott Quigg finally facing Carl Frampton. I have held numerous conversations with Al Haymon and there is a lot more positivity around the fight. Communications are open and various ideas have been discussed,” Hear said in his Daily Mail column.

“I have more hope than ever before that this can be made so let’s wait and see. But we are not putting all our eggs in one basket. I met with Bob Arum in London to speak about Quigg fighting Nonito Donaire in November. Frampton is the priority but this would be a huge fight as well.

“We have discussed some ideas, like Dubai and Manchester in November and Donaire has no problem with fighting in the UK. We’ll see how it plays out – both are excellent fights. Frampton is our preferred option, whether that is this winter or next Spring.”
