Default Frampton/Quigg or Fury/Price?

Frampton said in his post fight interview last night that a fight between him and Scott Quigg is bigger now than Fury vs Price. Which of the two potential matchups do you think is better and why?

For me, although Price and Fury has the potential for a fantastic build up with the trash talking, as well as the added element of more interest because they are Heavyweights, the Frampton-Quigg fight is the better of the two. The two of them have both shown a great deal of progression in their short careers to date and consistently look to upstage the other with big performances. The respect between the two might turn some people away but I think it's a credit to them both, especially Frampton who seems to be a realy classy guy.

So based on actual quality and skill alone, I'd certainly favour Frampton-Quigg. It has the potential to be one of the most intriguing British fights in years IMO.

Quality of the fight Quigg v Frampton is prob the better like. But Fury v Price is well more exciting.

Fury vs Price for me because there seems to be legitimate dislike there. Frampton vs Quigg will probably be the better fight though, they both come across as nice guys too.

Fury - Price by a long way.

Heavyweight bouts are always the bigger events and anyway, this rivalry is more interesting because of the trash talk and local derby aspect.

Frampton - Quigg is a great fight between two great fighters but they've said it themselves, there's no needle there between them. It's purely about seeing who's the best.

Fury and Price genuinely can't stand each other and you know there'd be fireworks in and out of the ring when they come face to face. Plus you know whoever lost that fight would be ruined as a fighter due to the humiliation. That extra sting makes it more interesting in my opinion.

Still both great fights though!

Fury-Price is the bigger fight because of the amateur fight & the fact they're heavyweight.

Frampton-Quigg is the better fight in terms of quality & technical ability. Its also more likely to happen than Fury-Price imo.

If built up properly then it could be the biggest heavyweight domestic battle since Lewis-Bruno.

to be fair ithe night before the fight Frampton said at 5:30 that Price-Fury was the biggest, but then Quigg mentioned how that wont happen etc, so was probably just basing it on that

Fury/Price. Two heavyweights, one with serious power and the other one a mad trash talker who genuinely seems to hate Price.

More people talking about fury-price, I think also quigg-frampton don't have genuine dislike for each other, there seems to be a lot of respect between the 2 fighters unlike fury- price who clearly have history and don't get along.
To be fair fury is building the fight up nicely with his twitter and tv rants at price it's making the fight alot more exciting for the fans.
Heavyweight fights in general catch the publics imagination so for me got to be fury-price.

I don't actually think Pricey dislikes Fury.

Its one way traffic, Price clearly isn't that bothered with all the trash talk etc.

The media and political hype of Sky Sports is one of the main reason's why people..? Keep banging on about Quigg vs Frampton being a massive fight.

I don't think its anywhere near the level of Price vs Fury.

Not only are Quigg and Frampton in a shit division, lets face the facts..? The match up has no passion, or plot.

I don't follow fighters in that division, to be honest..? I don't even know what division they fight at, is it 130..?

Fairplay to them if they fight though.

I agree its not as big as Fury-Price but it is a big domestic fight

Frampton & Quigg are super-bantumweights/122lbs, it is perhaps the best p4p division in the sport right now.

Casual fans never heard of Frampton or Quigg. Hearn said he struggles to sell tickes for those fights.
