Carl Frampton has challenged Scott Quigg to an all-British bout after claiming the IBF world super-bantamweight title with a points victory over Kiko Martinez in Belfast.
The 27 year old outclassed Martinez and after flooring the Spainard in round five cruised to a unanimous points decision victory.
Martinez soaked up a mountain of punishment during the second half of the contest as Frampton showed his class and the Barry McGuigan promoted fighter has wasted little time targeting his next fight, against WBA champion Quigg.
"The only man I want to fight is Scott Quigg," said Frampton.
"I'll fight him in Manchester, I'll fight him anywhere. What Eddie Hearn (Quigg's promoter) needs to remember is I'm the one with the legitimate belt. I'm the one who brings the fans,"
"That was for my grandad - I love you," he added
"Martinez was so dangerous. He's a hard puncher. I haven't seen my face yet but it feels lumpy.
"I've never respected a fighter as much in my life. What a fighter and what a worthy world champion."
Like Frampton – who becomes Britain's latest world champion - Quigg is currently unbeaten in his professional career but has struggled to attract substantial crowds in his northwest homeland.
But for Frampton's homecoming fight in Northern Ireland, a 16,000 purpose built outdoor arena was built for the contest such was the demand for tickets, and McGuigan added: "Scott Quigg will draw 800 people in Bury. We had to build an arena to fit in all Carl Frampton's fans."
