Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton met for the first of three press conferences to promote their fight in Manchester on February 27.
As seen above, the pair exchanged words as things begin to heat up ahead of their super-bantamweight showdown having been relatively respectful in the build up so far.
Frampton puts his IBF world title on the line while Quigg will look to defend his WBA strap, but the fight is undoubtedly capturing the attention of the general public due to the nature of their rivalry and the time it has taken for their respective promotional companies to agree on the fight.
The two fighters will cross paths again in Manchester and Belfast as they continue to drum up interest in the fight, but it is expected to be a memorable night of boxing regardless.
Frampton looked to rile his opponent and his trainer Joe Gallagher by insisting that the pair have taken confidence from the poor performance he produced in his last outing. However, he is adamant that they will be proved wrong next year while naturally Quigg insisted that he will triumph.
Nevertheless, both men agreed on the fact that this is the biggest fight that either could have been involved in at this stage of their career, and although Frampton is seen as the early favourite, it remains to be seen who prevails in what is expected be an action-packed bout.
