Scott Quigg says he would jump at the chance of a re-match with Carl Frampton.
Scott Quigg says he is “more than ready” for a rematch with Carl Frampton and is confident he could win at the second time of asking.
Frampton was the victor when the two met in 2016 in a super-bantamweight unification world title bout – winning on points to retain his IBF belt and taking Quigg’s WBA crown in Manchester.
Quigg admits the Northern Irishman was the superior fighter in their original fight, but believes he deserves an opportunity to redeem himself and has earmarked himself as the perfect opponent for Frampton’s long-awaited hometown stadium bout at Windsor Park in August.
“Everybody knows I’d jump at that fight and August 18 I’d be more than ready to take that fight,” Quigg told Sky Sports News.
“I’ve been in the gym for five weeks now and I’m already feeling good, feeling sharp and enjoying training again.
“There’s no other fight out there that could really be at Windsor Park, it’s as simple as that and I’m available. I’ve always wanted the rematch and I believe I could beat him, but I doubt I’ll get the phone call.
“He was the better man on the night and if that rematch was to happen then I’d get my chance to prove the doubters wrong.”
