Quigg opponent named

Scott Quigg will defend his WBA World Super Bantamweight title against Stephane Jamoye at the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester on September 13. The former European Bantamweight champion has a fine recent record against British opposition, claiming the Euro strap with an eighth round KO against Lee Haskins in December 2012 in his native Belgium and then defended the belt against Ashley Sexton three months later.

Jamoye, 24, will be in his second World title fight this year having travelled to Osaka to face Japan’s Shinsuke Yamanaka for the WBC Bantamweight title and has mixed in World class company, dropping a controversial decision to current World champions Tomoki Kameda and Leo Santa Cruz earlier in his career.

Quigg’s clash with Jamoye tops an action-packed bill in Manchester, with Anthony Crolla defending his WBO Inter-Continental Lightweight title against Gamaliel Diaz and Olympic gold medal hero Anthony Joshua MBE hunting an eighth KO win in the Heavyweight division.
