This Saturday night in Manchester, England, IBF Super Bantamweight Champion Carl “The Jackal” Frampton, 21-0, 14 KO’s will be facing the WBA champion Scott Quigg, 31-0-2, 23 KO’s in a highly anticipated unification title fight. Frampton who hails from Belfast in Northern Ireland won his title September 16th 2014 in a rematch against Kiko Martinez. Frampton battled Kiko in front of a soldout crowd of over 16,000 at the Titanic Quarters in Belfast, Frampton showed off his skills from the start knocking Martinez down in the 5th and controlled the entire fight. “The Jackal” eventually went on to win the title by unanimous decision. Since then Frampton has defended his title twice. In his first title defense in February, Frampton easily handled Lancaster California’s Chris Avalos. Chris made the trip across the pond with the hopes of bringing the Super Bantamweight title back to the United States only to have Frampton hand him a 5th round TKO loss.
