Carl Frampton blasted overmatched foe Prosper Ankrah in the second round, nothing that wasn't expected as the Ghanaian traveler appeared to be a completely hand-picked, non-threatening opponent from the get-go, but the real story for Frampton this afternoon came after the fight, when he, Barry McGuigan, and Eddie Hearn all accused British super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg of ducking a fight, which gave way to Quigg responding.
Frampton (13-0, 9 KO) retained his Commonwealth title, and promoter Hearn even admitted that the fight was not good enough for his rising young prospect. Hearn and McGuigan were very clear, saying that they don't think Scott Quigg or his trainer Joe Gallagher want anything to do with the fight.
Quigg, who is in the building as part of the Sky team today, responded by saying he didn't see anything in Frampton's win over Ankrah (18-4, 13 KO), and even said that he predicted it wouldn't go pats two rounds.

Quigg is currently in talks to face fellow Hatton Promotions super bantamweight Rendall Munroe, which would be a good matchup. But if he wins that one (if it happens), and Frampton keeps winning, that's a really interesting fight. Both are legitimately talented fighters with upside.
