Scott Quigg has told Carl Frampton that he is focused on winning a world title,rather than a huge domestic showdown with the Jackal.

Quigg has also told Framton and his team to focus on their own career, and not concentrate on him.

There has been a fighter merry-go-round in recent weeks, with Carl Frampton leaving Matchroom sport and Quigg joining up with Eddie Hearn and matchroom.

Frampton will now be boxing on Frank Warren’s Boxnation, and a fight with Quigg seems further away than ever, keeping in mind Hearn’s relationship with Warren.

Warren has reportedly tabled a meager £200,000 offer to stage the fight, but Hearn won’t bite at such a small amount, and Quigg believes he is a step ahead of Carl anyway, and is focused on winning a world title first.

“I don’t worry about Carl Frampton,” he said. “My career is not going to be based on me beating Carl Frampton. It’s going to be based on me getting to the top and being world champion.

“I am not focused on him. Where they are going wrong is that they are always looking at me and focused on me. That’s going to be their downfall.”

With Quigg in line for a shot at the vacant WBA strap against Yoandris Salinas, Quigg’s trainer, Joe Gallagher, believes with one or potentially two world titles on the line a future Frampton-Quigg bout would be huge.

“People say the fight isn’t going to happen now that he’s joined Matchroom, but it was never going to happen where Scott was previously,” added Quigg’s trainer Joe Gallagher

“There is more chance of it happening now with Scott having the backing of Sky TV. There is a chance of it going to purse bids, but his career isn’t defined by what happens with Carl Frampton, it’s about becoming a world champion.”
