IBF: No title unification for Frampton-Quigg

The IBF states that if a Carl Frampton vs. Scott Quigg fight comes together, it won't be a unification bout as they do not recognize Quigg's WBA 'regular' title.

IBF Chairman Lindsey Tucker tells WBN that if the proposed Frampton-Quigg fight gets made, only Frampton's IBF title would be on the line, as their organization doesn't recognize the 'regular' title that Scott Quigg holds.

"We can clarify that Scott Quigg cannot unify the super bantamweight titles with Carl Frampton," Tucker exclusively told World Boxing News.

"The last time I checked, Guillermo Rigondeaux was the WBA Super Champion and that is the only title we recognise for a unification. The way things are right now with Quigg being ‘regular' champion, we would not approve a unification."

Tucker did state, however, that Quigg could potentially get ranked by the IBF should he drop his WBA title. It appears that that either Frampton or Quigg would have to give up their title if the two want to make their lucrative fight happen -- but that's just yet another roadblock in their longstanding, troubled negotiations.
