Carl Frampton wants Scott Quigg fight

Carl Frampton targets a showdown with Scott Quigg after claiming the IBF super-bantamweight title with victory over Kiko Martinez in Belfast last night.

New IBF super-bantamweight world champion Carl Frampton wants WBA title-holder Scott Quigg to be his next opponent.

The 27-year-old successfully overcame Kiko Martinez by unanimous decision in front of 16,000 fans at the Titanic Quarter in Belfast last night, and now wants a showdown with Quigg.

"The only man I want to fight is Scott Quigg," Frampton told BoxNation.

"I'll fight him in Manchester, I'll fight him anywhere. What Eddie Hearn needs to remember is I'm the one with the legitimate belt. I'm the one who brings the fans."

However, Frampton must first defend his title against IBF mandatory challenger Chris Avalos next spring.
