frampton-midland-2010So Frampton-Martinez will take place at the Titanic Quarter venue later in the year. But what about the plight of WBA world belt holder -or ‘regular’ champion, whatever the hell it is- Scott Quigg? It’s important not to get too carried away beyond the imminent threat of Kiko Martinez and no doubt Cyclone Promotions will react with discomfort when anything but September 6 is mentioned. But speculation is all part of the fun, right? If Frampton gets past the Spaniard then fights with the likes of Quigg, Leo Santa Cruz or Guillermo Rigondeaux will certainly whet the appetite.

“I’m looking to win this fight first but Quigg is an option and Santa Cruz is an option,” said Frampton, speaking at the initial world title presser in early June.

“The mandatory is Chris Avalos and he is an option. I’m happy to fight all these guys. Scott Quigg  wasn’t keen to come to Belfast, but now he’s desperate because he knows we have the Kiko fight, so that’s why he is mentioning me now. They are a little bit desperate.”

According to Quigg’s promoter Eddie Hearn, who has been serenading his followers on Twitter over recent weeks, there is a big fight on the table for the Bury boxer very soon. Perhaps Hearn will be able to coax Santa Cruz into the ring for a “unification” if, indeed, Quigg’s WBA strap counts as a legitimate world crown.

“I’m happy I’m fighting for a legitimate world title, fighting in front of 20,000 people in my home town,” countered Frampton. “I’m very happy with that so they [rival fighters and promoters] can say what they want.”
