It's Frampton-Quigg Time!!!
The WBA and IBF Jr.Featherweight titles will be unified as Northern Ireland's Carl Frampton (IBF) takes on England's Scott Quigg (WBA) in Manchester England.
I think this is going to be a super action fight and with it being a 5;30 start on Showtime Extreme,I'm going to do something special.
Ramon Malpica and I are going to watch the fight "together",offer our opinions on the fight as it happens,discuss it all in real time and then immediately after the broadcast,I'll (and Ramon too) will immediately upload it to the podcast.
Hopefully,this trial balloon will work out and lead to other experiments!
Frampton-Quigg is about as even of a bout as you can find and if you have a way-watch it!!
Showtime has two live bouts at ten with Leo Santa Cruz defending his WBA Featherweight title against Kiko Martinez (a victim of both Frampton and Quigg) and Julio Ceja facing Hugo Ruiz in a rematch of a good fight for Ceja's WBC Jr.Featherweight belt.
HBO counters with dominant WBO Jr.Welterweight champ Terence Crawford defending against tough Hank Lundy and super prospect Felix Verdejo against William Silva...
