Carl Frampton will come face to face with Leo Santa Cruz in Belfast on Tuesday as they promote their WBA World title showdown in Las Vegas on January 28.

The two will come together as a press conference - that is open to the public - at the Europa Hotel at 1pm.

And as they discuss their upcoming clash another Frampton victim Scott Quigg is already looking for a shot at ‘The Jackal’ in the coming months after recovering from the broken jaw he received from Frampton in Manchester earlier this year.

And Quigg - who faces Jose Cayetano in Manchester on December 10 - is looking for revenge.

“I want to be linked with Carl Frampton and Lee Selby because if I am not linked with them, I’m doing something wrong. It’s no secret that I want a rematch with Carl and I would love to fight Lee too.

“I want to avenge the loss against Carl, which I believe I can do, and I want to become a two-weight World champion and that means fighting title holders like Lee.

“I’ve got to go out there and get back to winning ways first though, and then those fights will happen. It’s down to me to go out there and prove I’m going to land those fights and beat those guys.

“I believe I am the best, I had a bad night last time but if I keep winning, those big World title fights will come back once again and the results will go my way.”

And Quigg says he is delighted to have recovered from his injury.

“It’s great to be back,” said Quigg. “It’s been a long road. The biggest fight of my career didn’t go my way in February and I’ve had a broken jaw that’s kept me out of the gym for a long time.

“Everyone knows that I love to be in the gym, working and learning, so it’s been really tough. I’m back to living the life I love and I can’t wait to be back in the ring where I belong.

“Jose has mixed in good company. This is a very good fight coming back from a broken jaw.I’ve watched him a lot, he knows what he’s doing, and it’s a fight that I have to put in a top performance.”
