Sneak Peak At Frampton vs Quigg Whets The Appetite For A Massive Scrap

Belfast's IBF World super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton squares off with his Bury-born WBO counterpart Scott Quigg later this month, and there will be no love lost between the long-time rivals on Sky's 'Behind The Gloves' this Valentine's Day.

One could argue that the short-but-sweet promo may be edited slightly in the Sky fighter's favour - the game is the game, after all - but judging by Frampton's contemptuous facial expressions alone, it's clear that fans of the diminutive bangers can expect fireworks live on Sky Sports 1 at 6:55pm this Sunday, immediately following Manchester City's crucial Premier League clash with Tottenham.

Indeed, it will be intriguing to observe how exactly the full 30-minute episode will be pieced together considering The Jackal's noxious history with Sky Sports and Matchroom, but it is worth noting that neither fighter particularly dislikes the other on a personal level; this is a five-year-old boxing rivalry only, and one which should produce a legendary night of Irish and British boxing folklore at the Manchester Arena on February 27th.
