Sky Sports Box Office will broadcast the eagerly anticipated super-bantamweight unification World Title fight between two of Britain’s undefeated champions, Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg this evening!
The fight will take place at the Manchester Arena, where both fighters are currently undefeated with Frampton the IBF champion and Quigg the WBA title holder.
Someone’s perfect record will go as the long-awaited clash will finally determine the No 1 domestic boxer in the division.
“2016 is going to be an amazing year for British boxing with 12 current reigning world champions. This is one of the most eagerly anticipated matches of recent times,” said Adam Smith, executive producer of Sky Sports boxing.
“Everything is on the line for Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg and the atmosphere in the Manchester Arena will be electric for what should be a truly outstanding duel between two fighters at the top of their game.”

Carl Frampton said: “I am delighted to be headlining this massive Sky Sports Box Office event on February 27 at Manchester Arena. This fight has been in the making for years, it’s finally happening and I’m going to deliver the performance of my career and win in style.”
Scott Quigg added: “This is going to be the biggest fight of the year and I am delighted that it’s heading to Sky Sports Box Office. The build-up is going to be huge and will get more and more tense as we get close to February 27 – but I am totally focused on the job in hand. Everything I have done in my career has led to this fight, I know I’m better than Carl in every department. I’ve got the tools to beat him and beat him convincingly.”
