Quigg is Putting in Hard Work With Moylan For Munroe

SCOTT Quigg can rival the likes of Olympic heroes Sir Chris Hoy and Mo Farah when it comes to endurance.

Quigg, 24, has undertaken a ­battery of tests that have left experts ­convinced that he is one of the fittest boxers in the world.

The undefeated ace meets ­Leicester ­southpaw ­Rendall Munroe, 32, in a ­rematch on November 24 with the vacant WBA interim super-bantamweight title at stake.

Their 12-rounder is one of several big contests on the Manchester ­Arena bill headed by Ricky Hatton’s comeback fight against Ukrainian Vyacheslav Senchenko.

Bury’s Quigg (24-0-1) spent a day with his strength and conditioning coach Ric Moylan in the University of Salford’s Human Performance Laboratory. Results left staff amazed as the British champ flew through the tests.

Moylan said: “When it came to ­fitness levels, Scott was up there with elite endurance athletes like Sir Chris Hoy and Mo Farah.

“I have been involved with ­professional sportsmen for 15 years and Scott is one of the fittest guys I have ever seen.

“He did fitness, performance and endurance tests and blood and urine analysis, but his ­determination was as impressive as his world class fitness.

“During the tests Scott just wanted to push on. We all hope the benefits will show in the Rendall fight.”

Quigg’s first contest against ­Munroe (24-2-1) took place in June, but ended in a third-round technical draw because of a badly cut right eye to his rival. Also on the Hatton bill, Sergey Rabchenko (21-0) ­defends his European light-middleweight crown against Frenchman Cedric Vitu (35-1).

Martin Murray (24-0-1) will feature in title action and Gary Buckland (26-2) risks his British super- featherweight title against local idol Stephen Foster Jr (30-3-1).

Also in action are Hatton Promotions hopefuls Ashley Theophane (32-5-1), James Dickens (12-0), Adam Etches (9-0), Scott Jenkins (6-0) and Sam O’Maison (3-0).

The big Manchester bill will be broadcast live in the UK on ­Primetime at £14.95, as well as on the major US Showtime network.

Hatton said: “I’m humbled to have so many great fans. After my ­knockout by Manny Pacquiao three years ago, I want to make them all proud of me again."
