Sean Ellis looks at five options for whomever prevails when Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg meet

5. Lee Selby

Although currently operating at featherweight, the thought of either Frampton or Quigg taking on IBF king Lee Selby is an exciting one. Both are lucrative fights – that if made – would undoubtedly capture the interest of the boxing world. Selby is managed by Al Haymon – as is Carl Frampton – so theirs is a meet that would seem easy to make. And with Selby also being on the Matchroom books, a match-up with Quigg would also be an open goal.

A strong argument can be made for both Frampton and Quigg fighting Selby. Both would be intriguing match-ups, producing entertainment in their own right. One thing’s for sure, a Selby-Frampton/Quigg showdown would guarantee high pay-per-view figures, and money talks. That being said, it isn’t the most likely scenario. Selby’s intentions remain firmly fixed on the 126lbs division, and fights with Vasyl Lomachenko and Gary Russell Jnr currently make more sense.
