Scott Quigg is sure he would have Carl Frampton’s number if they ever meet in the ring.

Quigg is currently over in Hollywood training at Freddie Roache’s famous Wild Card Gym in preparation for his next fight.

And the WBA belt holder insists he would win if IBF king Frampton fights him in the coming months.

“It’s a fight I want to be involved with and I want to prove I’m the best and, 100 percent, I believe I beat him.

“But I won’t be disappointed because it’s not fault of mine why that fight’s not happening.

“Again, if they came to me and offered me 1.5 million and if I would’ve turned the offer down, what then? I would’ve been getting slayed.

“So it’s no fault of mine why this fight’s not happening again.

“I just want the big fights. My career doesn’t revolve around Carl Frampton.”

And Quigg blasted Frampton’s performance display against Alejandro González Jr. in El Paso last month.

“He wasn’t at his best. He didn’t look that good.

“He got put down by two nothing shots in my eyes.

“He didn’t perform anything like the way the McGuigans build him up to what they think he is.

“But I believe Frampton wants the fight, but will it happen? I don’t know,” added Quigg.

Meanwhile Michael Conlan wil be in semi-final action today at the European Championships in Bulgaria.

Belfast fighter Conlan - brother of professional boxer Jamie - faces Italy’s Francesco Maietta looking to book his place in the final.

Conlan has impressed so far and he will be looking to go the whole way in Samokov, but Maietta will also be looking to book his place in the final.

Team-mates Dean Walsh and Joe Ward will also be in semi-final action.

Walsh takes on Vitaly Dunaytev, while Wards tackles Croatia’s Hrvoje Sep.

Great Britain’s Joshua Buatsi, Pat McCormack and Qais Ashfaq will also fight in the semi-finals.
