Frampton v Scott Quigg - Carl's fighting talk when the gloves were off

Frampton five day countdown - four days to go

It's going to be an explosive fight when Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg finally meet in the ring - but with less than a week to go we take a look at when Carl knocked him (and others) out when the gloves were off.

Both fighters are undefeated when it comes to pulling punches in the ring and they are have proved they are equally as fiery when they meet outside of it too.

With just four days to go before the long-awaited world title unification fight, check out our gallery as we look at some of the Belfast boxer's best verbal blows.

Saturday's fight will see the undefeated record of one of the fighters go as Carl Frampton's IBF super bantamweight title is on the line and so is Scott Quigg's WBA title.

Both camps had been locked in talks about the showdown but it was a live announcement at the beginning of November on Sky Sports that finally confirmed that the showdown was to go ahead.

Anticipation had reached fever pitch after 'The Jackal' successfully defended his IBF super bantamweight title against Alejandro Gonzalez Jr in Texas in July while Quigg stopped Kiko Martinez to retain the WBA version of the crown in Manchester on the same night.

Frampton doesn't hold back but stays calm and collected and appears unfazed when he comes face to face in a war of words with his opponents.

The press conferences have been heated and the fans have been loving every exchange - even when Carl didn't say anything and just help up a sign which read "real champion".

Tonight as the fight draws closer the pair will complete a public workout at the Trafford Centre in Manchester at 6pm.

Frampton takes on Scott Quigg on Saturday February 27 and will be shown on Sky Sports.
