"It has been a long time coming. I have been after this fight for four and a half, maybe five years. To be here and only a couple of days away - I'm like a kid at Christmas.” Frampton, 29, said in the build-up to the fight.

Quigg, 27, said: "It is the biggest stage either of us have boxed on and if you can't get excited about something like this then we are in the wrong game.

"Training has gone perfect. I feel good. But there is a lot on the line so there is no room for error. Believe me I won't be making any mistakes."
