THESE ARE INTERESTING times indeed. Quiggy looked great in his win, which I was certain he’d stop him in 3 rounds.
Clearly HEARN is attempting to build not only a stable, but a dynasty of fighters under his promotion to rival the likes of GBP and Top Rank and the Sauerlands.
What better way to block your rival (Frampton and McGuigan) than by stealing their my thunder and the fight they’ve been chasing? I don’t know the fiscal elements of this, but I’m sure HEARN thinks he can offer more moolah than the fellas in Ireland.
What better incentive for Santa Cruz than another belt, especially as he wishes to rise to Featherweight in his very next bout.
HEARN is attempting to get an iron grip on the UK scene and ease out the Franks, Barrys, Rickys just like the banks did in the 90’s by buying IP all the talent and stealing the big fights from under the noses of the other promoters.
Might is not always right, but it seems to get the fights.
I will be watching with interest as I am a big fan of Leo Santa Cruz and wonder who he will meet next.Posted April 20, 2014 6:39 am

With the exception of the #1 champ @122Lb (Guillermo Rigondeaux) Who no one wants to fight there’s some good match ups to be made.

I want to see Quigg vs. Frampton. Scotty needs to give Carlos “The Jackal” a shot at that WBA title.Posted April 20, 2014 12:39 am
can’t say i knew much about the african but quigg was a class apart. got to agree that if he fights another clever boxer he will struggle so would stay far away from rigo, santa cruz and frampton could be great fights over the next few years let’s hope they will all face each other to decide the next best.Posted April 19, 2014 9:03 pm
Wow Quigg really smacked that African out. I hope they gave him some food afterwards, and some malaria medicine to take home.Posted April 19, 2014 7:50 pm

fry up.so sorry you”re boy lost tonight.Posted April 19, 2014 6:56 pm
Always liked Quigg a good fighter.I belive a few years back he went to the wild card gym in the States and worked with Freddie Roach,and Quigg payed for his own way there.Thats dedication and signs of a fighter who belives in himself.Quigg and Frampton two top guys in a very tough division…Good-Luck to both these lads!!!Posted April 19, 2014 6:52 pm
fry up. what part of africa are you from.Posted April 19, 2014 6:35 pm
Little worthless cnuts like u are the reason I don’t post much on here anymore. So am out. I hope you get raped by a gang of aids riddled smack heads . I shan’t be reading your reply. PeacePosted April 19, 2014 6:26 pm
Sour sap? Lol. I congratulate Quigg and rate him in the top 3 or 4 in the division and u say im sour??? Have a word with yourself sonPosted April 19, 2014 6:21 pm
Quigg is underrated. Heis still young and learning too.Posted April 19, 2014 5:30 pm
Tonight and in his last fight Quigg was very impressive though. Congrats to scott. I rate him above Martinez and possibly santacruz. Its a fantastic divisionPosted April 19, 2014 5:19 pm
The cuban Salinas showed that Quigg can’t deal with a smooth boxer. If Salinas had a bit of power Quigg would have lost. He tasted canvas in the fight anyway. Rigo would batter him at this point in their respective careers in my opinion. Wise move for Quigg and Frampton would b to wait until he gets too old to competePosted April 19, 2014 5:16 pm
Outstanding to night quigg , to talented , to powerful and to strong for the spider and I can see him doing a job on Santa cruse and frampton , well done champPosted April 19, 2014 5:14 pm
