Quigg-Frampton is a fight that should already be on the docket by now. There have been lengthy discussions on both sides, attempting to make the fight happen, but they eventually stalled over strong disagreements about which network should air the broadcast. Scott Quigg, however, says Frampton's manager is really the one preventing the fight from happening.

"I believe Frampton wants the fight. I believe he thinks he can beat me, I believe 100 percent I will beat him, so the only sticking point is Barry McGuigan."

"It's 60-40 for the winner, so it's there if they want but the only reason it's not happening is Barry McGuigan and his ego. He's got to remember it's not his career, it's Frampton's career, so Frampton's got to start calling a few shots."

All this may or may not be water under the bridge at this point, since Frampton has aligned himself with influential adviser Al Haymon and is headed stateside to further build his brand. Whether or not Haymon wants the Quigg fight for Frampton remains to be seen, but we'll see what happens.
