Quigg Has Big Ambition To Emulate Hatton's Heights

By Chris McKenna, courtesy of The Daily Star

SCOTT QUIGG can't wait to emulate childhood hero Ricky Hatton and get Manchester rocking. Quigg was in the crowd aged just 16 when Hatton beat Kostya Tszyu at the MEN Arena to win the IBF light-welterweight title back in 2005.

And he wants to cause as big a stir when he tops the bill at the same venue for the first time defending his WBA super-bantamweight title against Nehomar Cermeno on April 19.

Bury fighter Quigg, now 25, said: "When it really hit me was when I was watching Ricky Hatton and Kostya Tszyu.

"When he made his entrance, I was looking round at the fans and the atmosphere and I thought 'I wonder what he feels like when he is walking out now'.

"I have the chance to feel that now. To top the bill there, it will be all my own fans and take it to another level."

Quigg, undefeated in 29 fights, is also hoping the big show will earn him the recognition he feels he deserves.

He added: "The spotlight is on me and I've got to go out there and not only win but win in style."
