The Frampton v Quigg showdown has been a long time coming - but before the boxers step in the ring, how do they measure up?

The undefeated boxers have made it no secret that they both think they are the superior fighter.

Belfast's Carl Frampton previously said that he was "better in every department" than the Bury man who he faces on February 27.

Meanwhile Quigg and his team have said that Scott will win with a knock-out.

This week the Belfast Telegraph is counting down to the long-awaited fight which will see one of the boxer's perfect record go.

So what do the numbers say?
