One of the biggest fight of the year so far took place in Manchester Arena on Saturday night between Carl Frampton vs Scot Quigg and it turned out the be a very competitive fight. Frampton shaded the the early rounds where not uch was going on but fight came into life in later rounds as Quigg mounted a late charge and won majority of the last 5-4 rounds to make it a very equal fight.
It came down to how the judges scored the first 6 rounds where Frampton just shaded it narrowly but Quigg pretty much looked the better fighter in the last 6 rounds. So could have gone either way but for Frampton did just enough after his first 6 rounds to hang in there and win the fight.
