Quigg's Trainer Rejects The Idea of Salinas Rematch

By Nick Halling

Scott Quigg's trainer, Joe Gallagher, has rejected suggestions that Quigg should be forced to take a rematch with Cuba's Yoandris Salinas. Quigg defended his WBA super-bantamweight title against Salinas on Saturday, courtesy of a majority draw.Two judges saw it 114-114, while the third marked it 115-113 to Quigg.

"It was a close fight, and everyone agrees about that," said Gallagher. "But the majority of people at ringside seemed to be of the opinion that Quigg won a narrow decision. This is just a backlash against what happened with (Ray) Beltran last month." (Beltran was awarded a draw against Scotland's Ricky Burns in Glasgow in a WBO lightweight title fight, when an overwhelming majority of observers had Beltran winning clearly).

"We have fulfilled our mandatory obligations, and are now looking to move forward with a voluntary defence, possibly in November," continued Gallagher. "If the WBA is going to start ordering rematches every time there's a close decision, it will be ridiculous. They can start with (Felix) Sturm against (Matthew) Macklin to begin with. That was a far worse decision."

Gallagher also rejects arguments from the Salinas camp that the Cuban injured his left hand, which affected his performance. "So he had an injured hand," he said. "You dont get rematches just because you get injured."

Sorry but I didn't see anything in the final 6 to make me feel bad for Salinas, unlike feeling genuinely aggrieved for Beltran after Burns. Quigg didn't look bamboozled by the cute cuban, he just seemed to start slow. Scott's…

He's acting like they won the fight, they didn't. They should rematch him. Quigg's "world title" has been "upgraded" by drawing with an unranked contender. Speaks for itself.

[QUOTE=Kilrain;13824808]Bit of an overstatement. I had it 4-2 after 6. Not like Salinas was boxing his ears off, it was very tit for tat with Salinas landing the slightly better and cleaner shots.[/QUOTE] I don't mean to say he put…

[QUOTE=frosty-g;13824619]Boxed with him? Was boxed BY him first half, bit of a difference Second half though yeah I agree[/QUOTE] Scott held his own and snatched a couple of early rounds imo. This with what 11 or 12 amateur contests behind…
