Scott Quigg is aiming for redemption against Carl Frampton in the near future as he prepares to fight at Wembley on the undercard of the Anthony Joshua-Wladimir Klitschko bout at the end of April.

Speaking to Sky Sports, the boxer said: "There is a lot of good options out there, but the front-runner that I would love to fight would be Santa Cruz, I will always want to avenge the loss to Frampton and I believe if I get the chance, I will definitely avenge that loss. 

"We'll have to wait and see. I'm out here now preparing, getting better, loving boxing again, and looking forward to making a real good statement on April 29."

After beating the Englishman, Frampton has gone on and become involved in an epic rivalry with Leo Santa Cruz which now sits at one win each. The pair are reportedly involved in discussions for the rubber match but an announcement doesn't appear imminent.

Speaking on the current situation, Quigg said: "They don't want to give me a rematch, so at the end of the day I'm going to make sure I put myself in the position," he said.

"They are wanting the rematch with Santa Cruz, but I don't see why Santa Cruz is going to go to Belfast when there is no need for him to do that.

"I would love to fight Santa Cruz and if I beat Santa Cruz, I'm sure Frampton would want to come and play ball with me again," he added.
