Carl Frampton v Scott Quigg - Chants of 'who are you' welcome Quigg to Belfast

Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg met head to head in Belfast's Europa Hotel for a rowdy press conference.

A rapturous reception for the local IBF Super Bantam Weight from Tiger's Bay was contrasted against a coliseum like boo-ing for the Manchester WBA Champion Quigg.

Both managers think their fighters will knock each other out, but Frampton's manager Barry McGuigan held more conviction, "the difference is, I know Carl will win and I'm putting my reputation on the line."

The fight is scheduled for the 27th of February next year and is expected to be a sellout event. Both fighters have an unblemished record and will going all out for a unifying bout.
