    Default Scott Quigg v Jono Carroll

    Scott Quigg eager to show he still belongs at boxing’s top table

    Scott Quigg wants to become a world champion once again but knows his dream will go up in smoke if he fails to beat Jono Carroll at the Manchester Arena on Saturday night.

    Having fought overseas in his most recent three contests, Quigg is back on home soil and topping the bill where he had many successful nights as the WBA super-bantamweight champion.

    Defeats to Carl Frampton in a unified world title showdown and then WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez have lowered Quigg’s stock, but the 31-year-old remains convinced he belongs at the elite level.



    However, Quigg (35-2-2, 26KOs) knows his career is on the line in a super-featherweight meeting against brash Irishman Carroll, whose only foray on the world stage ended with a wide points defeat to Tevin Farmer last March.

    Quigg told the PA news agency: “Without a doubt, this is a must-win fight. But I will win this fight. There will be a tomorrow because I will be winning.

    “I don’t need to box, I want to box because I love boxing and it’s too hard of a sport to do just to make the numbers up. I know what I’ve got to do in there, I’ll make sure Saturday night is a very happy, successful night.

    “Beating Carroll will put me a step closer, if not in a position to fight for a world title. I want to become world champion.

    “I’m happy at super-featherweight, I feel good, feel strong, but if a big opportunity came up at featherweight I believe I could squeeze down to it.”

    Quigg, who has returned to trainer Joe Gallagher for this fight having worked with highly-respected United States veteran Freddie Roach in the last couple of years, thinks he is a level above Carroll.

    The Dubliner (17-1-1, 3KOs) has attempted to stoke up the rivalry on social media, but Quigg dismissed the taunts as he vowed to deliver one of his best displays in the paid ranks.

    Quigg added: “He just talks a lot of nonsense.

    “Everything he does, I do better. If he wants to come and stand and fight, he can come and stand and fight, which he won’t. If he wants to try and box then I’ll hunt him down and it won’t take me long to get him.

    “He’s tough, is he durable? We don’t know because he’s never been in with anyone who hits like me. You can say he’s been in with Tevin Farmer but Tevin Farmer doesn’t hit like me and Tevin Farmer was hurting him.

    “I’m expecting a tough fight, that’s how I always train, but on Saturday night I’m going to to go in there and people are going to see one of the best performances from me in my career.”

    Quigg, who scaled at 9st 3lbs, pushed Carroll in the face during a fractious weigh-in on Friday afternoon. Security stepped in between the pair before Carroll, who came in one pound heavier than his opponent, could respond.

    Just found out that Hughie Fury is on the undercard against some 37 year old Czech who turned pro when he was 33.
    That’ll get him back on the World scene!
    Former Undisputed 4 belt Prediction champion. Still P4P and People’s Champion.

    I fancy Quigg to win by ko Carroll will want to trade toe to toe and I feel he will get sparked.

    Parker v Murdock has been a good scrap, nothing extremely exciting but two evenly matched fighters, a few big shots landed but neither of them have been in any real trouble, its got 12 rounds written all over it

    Great win from Parker, got the stoppage in the 11th, Murdoch was game until the very end but he was taking some big shots, good stoppage.

    You've not missed anything, Parker v Murdoch was a good scrap but was hardly a classic, Fowler fought a donkey on ice skates and Baby Fury is up next

    Hughie taking the centre of the ring and punching with intent in the first round. His opponent looks tired already.

    Fury going southpaw at the end of the round.

    1-0 Fury
