With just a few days left before the biggest fight of his career, Scott Quigg tells Sky Sports that he's incredibly confident that he'll beat Carl Frampton -- which would be at least a minor upset to most -- but that he knows he cannot make mistakes in this fight, either.

"Training has gone perfect. I feel good. But there is a lot on the line so there is no room for error. Believe me I won't be making any mistakes. This is a big fight. I got into boxing to be a world champion. I set out to do that and I have achieved that. ... To be able to perform on this platform, this is everything I've worked towards and it all comes down to this moment. I will tell you what, I am one million per cent confident I am going to win."

Quigg (31-0-2, 23 KO) is a former British champion at 122 pounds, and won the interim WBA belt in 2012 against Rendall Munroe, five months after their first fight ended in a three round technical draw due to a clash of heads. He was then elevated to "world" champion, still below the WBA's "super world" designation, in 2013. He was elevated to "super world" champion recently, when the WBA made the curious decision to strip Guillermo Rigondeaux of his title.

Quigg has been on something of a tear since a 2013 draw with Yoandris Salinas, stopping four of his last five opponents, all of the stoppages coming within three rounds. In his last fight, he smashed former titleholder Kiko Martinez -- a fighter Frampton has beaten twice -- in the second round.
