We can confirm that it is not a dream – Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will finally clash in the ring on February 27th at the Manchester Arena.
After months of negotiation and years of hype, the pair sat down live on Sky Sports News and both signed the contract yesterday evening.
As can be expected, Twitter went into absolute meltdown with the news.
The fighters themselves seem excited
