Awesome Carl Frampton defeats Scott Quigg on split decision

Scroll down to view live coverage from Manchester Arena

By Claire Williamson

Belfast's Carl Frampton was crowned unified world super-bantamweight champion after beating fellow Briton Scott Quigg on points at Manchester Arena.

The much-anticipated showdown between two fighters who both went into it undefeated was widely regarded beforehand as a 50-50 contest, although Frampton was marginal favourite with the bookmakers. And it was the Northern Irishman who did eventually emerge triumphant after 12 rounds in front of a cacophonous 20,000 sell-out crowd, winning on a split decision to add Bury-born Quigg's WBA title to his own IBF belt.
