Kiss Of Death? Carl Frampton And Scott Quigg Face Off As Coaches Scuffle At Weigh-In

Kiss Of Death? Carl Frampton And Scott Quigg Face Off As Coaches Scuffle At Weigh-In
By Gavan Casey

It started with a kiss...

It's been four-and-a-half years in the making, but Belfast's Carl Frampton and Bury's Scott Quigg have made weight and are ready to rumble in Manchester.

Both rivals tipped the scales under the super-bantamweight limit ahead of their IBF-WBA world title unification scrap, with former two-weight Irish champion 'The Jackal' - rather predictably being accused of struggling at the weight by Quigg's team - coming in 0.15 pounds heavier than his opponent at 121.75.

Again, rather predictably, it was the pair's constantly bickering coaches, and not the fighters themselves, who let tensions get the best of them as their charges prepared to go face-to-face before tomorrow's night's mammoth encounter across the Irish Sea.

When the fighters did finally come together, it was Frampton who broke the staredown, following his 'shoulder-tapping' antics yesterday...with a kiss.

But with much made in the past few months of the ever-growing Frampton army potentially drowning out Quigg and his hometown fans in their own back yard, who made the most noise at the weigh-in?
