How Twitter reacted to Carl Frampton’s win over Scott Quigg

| 28.02.2016

Scott Quigg lost his WBA Super Bantamweight title to Carl Frampton in a split decision at Manchester Arena on Saturday night.

Irishman Frampton is now a two-belt world champion after claiming the victory on pay-per-view, but the contest failed to deliver as much action as the pre-bout chatter had promised.

After going the distance and only firing into a contest in the latter stages, due to Quigg’s cautious strategy in the first half, many fight fans were left a little deflated by the contest.

As you’d expect, most of those viewers aired their thoughts on Twitter. Here’s the best of that reaction:

World Heavyweight champion Tyson Fury was ringside, but let everyone know he thought the home-town Quigg left it too late to mount a challenge

The lack of punches thrown in the opening six rounds, particularly from the Englishman, left many a little perplexed

Someone even went as far as to update Quigg’s Wikipedia page

While both fighters ended the contest unmarked, there was a stark contrast to Michael Bisping of the UFC in London

Guillermo Rigondeaux, a potential next opponent for Frampton, was quick to call Quigg out

Boxing commentator Ian Darke blamed Quigg’s corner for allowing him to start so slow

While a fellow Irish fighter celebrated Frampton’s success
