EDDIE HEARN has admitted frustration fuelled his public £1.5m offer to Carl Frampton to fight Scott Quigg. The Matchroom boss today indicated he would send a cheque to the Northern Irish fighter if he agreed to a July 18 super-bantamweight showdown.
Frampton’s Cyclone Promotions – headed by Barry McGuigan – immediately sent out a press release indicating surprise at the move which went against the co-promotion they were negotiating.
Hearn responded: “It is not about Cyclone Promotions and Matchroom Sport, it’s about Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton. If Cyclone Promotions really need their name on the poster and Michael Buffer to mention them in the introductions, then no problem.
