On Saturday, Scott Quigg is going to Belfast, and the fighter will be at ringside when Carl Frampton faces Chris Avalos, in a fight that is highly anticipated by white label sportsbooks and fans alike.
The champion of the WBO super-featherweights will face the IBF champion, in what is set to be Frampton’s first defence of a world title.
“It’s going to be a good fight,” said Quigg. “I don’t think it’s an easy fight but I do hope he comes through it so it sets up a big fight between me and him in the summer.
“That’s the fight I want, that’s the fight he apparently wants. He has been very vocal about it so hopefully he comes through and sticks to what he says and the fight can be made.
“I am a million per cent I will beat him if it is made.”
Quigg – 26-years-old and very famous for his skills in the ring – did acknowledge that he contacted Barry McGuigan’s Cyclone Promotions, and he asked to get tickets for the clash taking place in Belfast at the Odyssey Arena.
The fighter always admitted to feeling happy about going to Belfast to have a unification clash, and is eager to see the action on Saturday night.
Even though he believes that Frampton will be the one to beat Avalos, he had sparring sessions with the latter, and thinks that he’ll take the fight to its last rounds.
“I sparred with him at the Wild Card back in 2009, then a couple of years ago,” said Quigg.
“He has matured as a fighter since when I first sparred him. He was quite reckless and easy to hit, but he’s got a good chin and is strong.
“He can be hit to the body though and I had some success there, but sparring is sparring, this is different. He has been matched hard and well, from an early stage.
“I do side with Carl, I think he’s more skilled and got more to his game but Chris Avalos comes with a lot of confidence. He likes to talk trash but he believes in himself – and a fighter who believes in himself can be dangerous.”
Boxing fans and white label sportsbooks are looking forward to a very intense clash between Frampton and Avalos, and can’t wait to see what will happen in the ring when these fighters face each other.
