"This is one of the most eagerly anticipated matches of recent times.

"Everything is on the line for Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg and the atmosphere in the Manchester Arena will be electric for what should be a truly outstanding duel between two fighters at the top of their game.”

Scott Quigg added: "This is going to be the biggest fight of the year and I am delighted that it's heading to Sky Sports Box Office.

"The build-up is going to be huge and will get tenser as we get close to February 27 - but I am totally focused on the job in hand.

"Everything I have done in my career has led to this fight, I know I’m better than Carl in every department. I’ve got the tools to beat him and beat him convincingly."

Preview and analysis from the Manchester Arena will be provided by Adam Smith, and former world champions Johnny Nelson, Carl Froch and Jim Watt, as well as a range of boxing experts.
