Fans of both fighters were in loud voice today as they enjoy the final countdown for the long-awaited clash.

The sold-out fight in the Manchester Arena will see one of their undefeated records go.

Yesterday a war of words over who should be in what dressing room at the Manchester Arena for Saturday's World Title Unification Fight set the fiery tone for the day's events.

Quigg is down to have what is known as the 'star' dressing room at the venue but the Frampton camp believe that their man should be given first preference as he is top of the bill.

The row broke out before the press conference with some boxing experts suggesting that Frampton's people were using it as a way to try and get under Quigg's skin.

After the press conference as the pair came head-to-head they had to be restrained by their respective managers Barry McGuigan and Eddie Hearn as things heated up with some pushing and shoving.
