There was quite a level of interest in the big fight in Manchester last night.
It was nice to see after all of the tension in the build-up to the fight, that the fighters seem to have a genuine embrace in the dressing rooms afterwards. There seems to be a genuine respect between the two fighers.

The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed Wayne Rooney in the video, consoling Scott Quigg. Rooney lost a twitter bet with Rory McIlroy over the outcome of the fight, and after giving his man some words of advice - he can be heard telling Frampton that he'd cost him a lot of money.
But what exactly were the words that Rooney said to Quigg? The Bury fighter revealed them to us post-fight:
He said to keep my chin up - I said I'd have to keep it straight first!
He was just saying he has lost a Champions League final and it hurts - but you have to learn from it and come back stronger.
It has emerged that Quigg appears to have suffered a broken jaw in the fourth round before battling on. Quigg was clearly pleased with a high-profile like Rooney coming to say those words, but no one was happier than Rooney:
