Joe Gallagher and Scott Quigg claim Carl Frampton’s performance against Alejandro Gonzalez Jr in July made America laugh.
‘The Jackal’ was on the canvas twice in the first round, but recovered to win on points.
“They were all laughing about him struggling with Gonzalez,” said Gallagher.
“I think BarryMcGuigan asked for his opinion on who’d win between the two of them and Freddie Roach went, ‘well Scott Quigg’.”
And Quigg said: “The way Barry bangs the drum about him, everyone was expecting him to go and do a job on Gonzalez. Then there was a bit of ‘what is Barry going on about?’”
