Quigg: Cyclone are looking to cash-out on Frampton, they know he will lose

Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg exchanged hostile verbal blows today at the opening leg of their three-city media tour. Speaking in London ahead of the February 27th mega-fight at the Manchester Arena, Quigg had an interesting theory about why the fight has finally been made after four years of hype.

The Englishman feels that McGuigan and Cyclone Promotions know that Frampton will lose next year and have decided to cash out on ‘The Jackal.’ He argues that this is due to Frampton’s performance in El Paso during the Summer where he was knocked to the canvas twice in the opening round en-route to a points win.

Quigg explained that “I believe that this fight has been made because of Carl’s last performance.”

“The people around him have realised that he is not as good as they thought he was.”

The Bury boxer stated his confidence going into the bout, claiming that “I believe and I know that I’m the better fighter in every department. You can go on about his amateur pedigree but it doesn’t make a difference.”
