Scott Quigg wants Carl Frampton to beat Nonito Donaire next month.
Quigg figures if he upsets Oscar Valdez on Saturday night and Frampton defeats Donaire, it’ll build momentum for their rematch.
Quigg wanted an immediate rematch, but Frampton understandably pursued back-to-back featherweight title fights against Leo Santa Cruz in the United States.
Mexico’s Horacio Garcia floored Frampton in the seventh round of his last bout, November 18 in Belfast.
