Rigs went to the UK before and trashed some guy.  He would have no problem trashing Frampton, or Quigg the same way.  Boxing now days is becoming frustrating.  Guys wait around fighting stiffs, instead of facing the best available opposition.

He had an offer for 700k to face Frampton, turned it down.  You're right, boxing is frustrating when guys think they're worth more than they really are.
