Frampton next ?

Both Leo Santa Cruz and Scott Quigg retained their WBC and WBA titles in Las Vegas and Manchester with second and third round stoppages of Manuel Roman and Stephane Jamoye respectively, opening the way to possible battles with Frampton, who landed his IBF belt with that momentous victory over Kiko Martinez nine days ago. Belgian Jamoye was clearly out of his depth against Quigg, who holds the WBA regular title – the main belt being held by Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux who is also a target for Mexican Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz was equally dominant against Roman and re-iterated his interest …

Quigg prepares for ‘dangerous’ title defence

Scott Quigg regards Saturday’s fourth defence of his WBA world super-bantamweight title as more dangerous than his last one.

Jamoye was drafted in late last month and his victims include Britons Lee Haskins and Ashley Sexton in a 26-5 record. Quigg insists he is not taking …
