Quigg set to make point

SCOTT QUIGG is ready to prove a point to his rival Carl Frampton when he defends his WBA super-bantamweight title against Spaniard Kiko Martinez in Manchester on Saturday night.

Quigg knows comparisons with the Belfast IBF champ are inevitable since Frampton beat Martinez in Belfast in 2013 and again last year.

"This is the toughest fight of my career and I'm chomping at the bit to get in there on Saturday," said Quigg.

"It does make it even more pressure because there are going to be comparisons between how I beat him and how Frampton beat him, but I couldn't be in a better place physically and mentally.

"The rivalry is good for both of us. People are picking him over me, but I've got the chance to go and show everyone why I'm the best super-bantam in the world."
