Quigg Ready To Achieve Title Dream With Matchroom

By Kevin Francis, courtesy of The Daily Star

SCOTT QUIGG has emerged from a nightmare spell out of the ring and set his sights on becoming a world champion.

The interim WBA world super-bantamweight champ has left Ricky Hatton’s promotional stable to join Eddie Hearn’s mushrooming Matchroom camp.

He will have his first fight in Bolton on Saturday, June 29 and said: “I just can’t wait to get back in the ring and my aim is to become world champion by the end of next year.”

Quigg has not fought since beating Rendall Munroe for the interim belt in November and the 24-year-old from Bury admits he has had a frustrating time.

He said: “It has been something of a nightmare. Being out of the ring for a variety of the reasons just hasn’t helped me at all.

“You ask any fighter and he will tell you just how frustrating that is. But I am dedicated and kept myself fit.

“Everything comes to those who wait, so this is now a good time for me in my career. It is going to be a big year for me.

“By the time I get back into the ring it will have been eight months of inactivity and when I do fight, I will be able to see where I am.

“There are big fights out there for me but it would be daft to just go and jump in there without really knowing exactly where I am at.

“We are there or thereabouts and I am confident that by the end of next year, I will be a world champion.”
