On Saturday night at the Manchester Arena, Manchester, Lancashire, United Kingdom, IBF super bantamweight champion Carl Frampton (22-0 / 14 by KO) won a split decision over WBA super bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (31-1-2 / 23 by KO) in their eagerly anticipated unification title fight.
Frampton was the clear cut winner and was in complete control in the scheduled 12 round fight. My score card was a little wider than most for the winner, Frampton: 117-111, nine rounds to three. The official judges at ringside scores were 116-112, 116-112 for Frampton and 115-113 for Quigg.
For Carl Frampton, a possible mega fight against undefeated Cuban sensation Guillermo Rigondeaux could be in the future. Now that would be a boxing fans dream fight, and how ironic that both fighters have the same nickname – The Jackal.
