Carl Frampton (21-0) and Scott (31-0-2) face each other in an eagerly awaited unification bout on February 27th in Manchester, England.
Today’s official announcement and presser in London was a fiesty one to say the least, with a war of words between both camps already igniting the flames this looks set to be a thrilling encounter.
Quigg, who has home-field advantage, has defended his WBA title five times since 2013, taking out; Martinez, Silva, Munyai, Jamoye and Otake in the process.
However, since the IBF refused to recognise his regular title the WBA had no choice but to upgrade Quigg to super champion in order for the fight to proceed as a unification bout.
Quigg’s upgrade in turn meant that Guillermo Rigondeaux lost his super champion status at 122lbs.
Frampton, who claimed his IBF strap in September 2014 has made two defenses this year and will undoubtedly bring a lot of support with him on February 27th 2016.
