Quigg in search of new challenger

By James Slater

Unbeaten Scott Quigg, the reining WBA super-bantamweight champ (Guillermo Rigondeaux is the “super” WBA champion of course) is in need of a new opponent for his fast approaching September 13th defence in Manchester. Original foe, Paulus Ambunda, had to pull out due to suffering a hamstring injury in training. Quigg, who wants the big fights, will no doubt be hoping his promoter Eddie Hearn can find him a formidable and challenging opponent. But Hearn does not have long, with the card at The Phones 4 U arena just under three weeks away.

One week before Quigg boxes, potential rival Carl Frampton meets IBF king Kiko Martinez in a rematch in Ireland. Quigg and Frampton may well meet in a huge unification some time next year should they both emerge with a victory next month. At least, this is a fight all fans want to see come to fruition.
