We have taken control away from Team Frampton says Quigg

Scott Quigg believes Team Frampton have lost control and believes things will crash down around them in Manchester this coming Saturday night.

The Bury fighter thinks he has gotten under the skin of his rival ahead of the massive IBF and WBA super bantamweight World title fight, as well as upsetting ‘The Jackal’s’ Team, which includes Irish fight legend Barry McGuigan and trainer Shane McGuigan.

Quigg admits he is nervous ahead of the PPV Sky broadcast bout, but suggests ‘butterflies’ are positive while Frampton has gone beyond that and ‘lost the rag’.

“He likes to be in control. His team likes to be in control as well. We’ve taken that control away from them, they are not in charge. A couple of times at the press conferences, they lost their rag and their cool, it just shows we are getting to them.

“I have nerves, but that is what keeps me sharp. I wake up every morning knowing that I have to do what I need to do that day to keep improving,” he said.

“On the night, there will be nerves and there will be butterflies, but that is what keeps me sharp and I’ll go out there and become unified world champion.”
