Scott Quigg has revealed that talks over a super-bantamweight showdown with rival Carl Frampton have started and are going well so far.

The WBA champion was ringside in Belfast last Saturday night to watch Frampton deliver a sensational performance against Chris Avalos.
Quigg was then invited into the ring for the post-fight interview, with both men insisting that they wanted the fight and didn’t care where it was held.
Frampton did aim a dig at his rival by reminding him that he is the “real champion”, while the Bury fighter insisted that it was merely a “good” performance against Avalos.
It appears as though a showdown between the two world champions is close, as Quigg revealed that talks have started again since last weekend, and he is confident that the bout will get made.
“It’s the fight I want, he wants and the British public want,” Quigg told Sky Sports.
“What gives me confidence is that if Floyd Mayweather Jr v Manny Pacquiao can be made, I’m sure me and Carl Frampton can get made. We’re in talks now and it’s going well. Hopefully, fingers crossed, it can be made because it’s the fight the public deserve.”
The 26-year-old is back in training after undergoing hand surgery last year, and he added that the recovery is going well and he should be on course to return to the ring in the summer.
Given that talks have been on-going for some time for the pair to meet, there is still scepticism over whether or not things will be different this time round.
Promoter Eddie Hearn has hinted that of all the domestic showdowns that could happen this year, Quigg vs Frampton is the most likely to come to fruition.
