IBF super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton will fight WBA titlist Scott Quigg on February 27 in Manchester.
After months of negotiations between promoters Barry McGuigan and Eddie Hearn failed to materialize in the fight being made, but now terms between Team Frampton and Team Quigg have been agreed and the two super-bantamweight titans will finally lock horns.
Frampton, 28 and Quigg, 27, are both undefeated and hold world titles which are likely to be included in the blockbuster unification.
After Bury fighter Quigg recently blamed Barry McGuigan from preventing the fight with Frampton happening, now terms have been agreed suggest that Frampton's decision to join Al Haymon managerial team was key in making the fight with Quigg and his promoter Eddie Hearn, who Haymon holds a close business relationship with.
The fight will be shown live on Sky Sports Box Office on February 27 and is being branded as the biggest showdown to be held on UK soil since Carl Froch's rematch with George Groves at Wembley Stadium last year.
Both boxers fought last on July 18, where Frampton climbed off the canvas to outpoint Alejandro Gonzalez Jr, while Quigg bombed out former world champion Kiko Martinez in two rounds.
Japanese contender Shingo Wake was initially in line to challenge for Frampton's title, but the IBF cancelled purse bids to allow negotiations with Quigg to materialize.
IBF's Jeannette Salazar told World Boxing News:
"There is no purse bid scheduled for that (Frampton v Wake). Frampton v Quigg was tentatively approved for the unification and we are just waiting on the signed contracts to sanction the fight."
