Quigg: I’d beat Frampton anywhere!

Scott Quigg is set to return reiterating once more that he is willing to fight Carl Frampton anywhere to get the fight on everyone’s lips made.

The reigning WBA super-bantamweight champion recently required surgery on a hand injury sustained in the 9th round of his title defence against Hidenori Otake in November.

The procedure was a success and two weeks out from being allowed to uncork his right hand again, Quigg, 30-0-2 (22KO’s), has told FKSports he is gunning for IBF champion Frampton, 19-0 (13KO’s). Continue reading

Hidenori Othake takes on Scott Quigg tomorrow

Hidenori Othake takes on Scott Quigg for the WBA Bantamweight title – and the Japanese star wants to become a history maker on Saturday night at the sold out Echo Arena in Liverpool, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

This is only the second time in boxing history that a Japanese boxer has come to England to challenge for the World title, the first was Mitsunori Seki, who was stopped in nine rounds by Howard Winstone way back in 1968 for the vacant WBC Featherweight crown. Continue reading

Otake: Beers are on me when I KO Quigg

Japanese challenger vows to rip title from Bury champion

Hidenori Otake will be the toast of Japan if he takes WBA World Super Bantamweight title off Scott Quigg after his sponsors vowed to name a beer after him if he returns with the belt from the sold out Echo Arena in Liverpool on November 22, live on Sky Sports Box Office. Continue reading

Quigg and Crolla: Manchester’s Finest

This Saturday, Manchester’s ‘Phones 4 U’ Arena (Formerly the MEN), plays host to the return of two of the most likable fighters on the British scene. Both Scott Quigg and Anthony Crolla will once again bask in the famed Manchester support as they attempt to further ignite two careers, which have the potential to really take off.

It would be fair to say that Quigg (28-0-2 21KO’s) has had a strange year to say the least, since announcing himself on the world scene with a destructive performance when halting former world title challenger and everyone’s favourite bin man, Rendall Munroe, in 6. After which, Quigg was handed the WBA Super Bantamweight World Title, when 8st 10lbs ruler Guillermo Rigondeaux was announced ‘Super’ Champion.

Scott Quigg fires warning to Carl Frampton: “after I beat Stephane Jamoye, I’m taking your World title.”

Quigg defends his WBA World Super Bantamweight title against the Belgian live on Sky Sports from the Phones 4 u Arena in Manchester, and the Bury star is targeting a unification clash with the newly-crowned IBF champion from Belfast after he does the business on Saturday night.

The 25 year old is hunting a hat-trick of stoppage wins in his fourth defence of the title, and believes that the time is right for him and Frampton to get in the ring and settle their brewing rivalry.

“I was pleased to see Carl win the title on Saturday and now it makes perfect sense for us to fight,” said Quigg. “I’ll fight him in Belfast, no problem – but 9,000 in Belfast versus 20,000 here in Manchester, it makes more sense here. But if they can find somewhere in Belfast with 20,000 then I can go there, I don’t care. It’s one of the biggest fights in British boxing alongside Amir Khan and Kell Brook – it’s that big, everyone has an opinion. We both think we can win so there’s no reason why we shouldn’t fight – and I know that I will come out with both belts.” Continue reading

Quigg stops Munyai

Tonight in Manchester defending WBA super-bantamweight ruler Scott Quigg put on one of his most devastating and impressive showing thus far in his career as he annihilated South African danger man Tshifhiwa Munyai in two sizzling rounds.

Dropping “The Atomic Spider” with a cracking left hook to the jaw towards the end of the opening round, Quigg looked to have the fight all won. Munyai, a late replacement challenger, showed real heart in beating the count and seeing the round out. The end was not far away however. A thudding right hand to the head put the taller man down in the 2nd, and the follow-up barrage gave referee Howard Foster no option but to dive in and wave the fight off. The time was one-minute and 56-seconds. Continue reading
