frampton and quigg

Sky Sports Box Office has begun its build up to the eagerly anticipated super-bantamweight unification World Title fight between IBF champion Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg, two of the UK's undefeated champions.

Tickets for this titanic fight at the Manchester Arena on February 27th sold out within a few minutes, but fans can still catch every blow on Sky Sports Box Office.

Both fighters are currently undefeated, with this fight touted as being the one that will finally determine who is the number one boxer in this division.

A large Irish contingent is expected to descend on Manchester in support of the popular Belfast-born Frampton, who was recently handed an MBE in the New Year honour list.

A strong Lancashire fanbase will also be there to cheer on Bury fighter Quigg in what promises to be an electrifying evening of boxing.

And Quigg insists he is focused on the task at hand, stating: "Everything I have done in my career has led to this fight, I know I’m better than Carl in every department. I’ve got the tools to beat him and beat him convincingly."

That confidence is replicated by Frampton, who believes he can emerge victorious in front of a sellout crowd.

He added: "This fight has been in the making for years, it's finally happening and I'm going to deliver the performance of my career and win in style."

Adam Smith, Executive Producer of Sky Sports boxing, claims this fight is only the beginning of a great programme of bouts on Sky Sport Box Office in 2016.

He said: “2016 is going to be an amazing year for British boxing with 12 current reigning world champions. This is one of the most eagerly anticipated matches of recent times. Everything is on the line for Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg and the atmosphere in the Manchester Arena will be electric for what should be a truly outstanding duel between two fighters at the top of their game.”
