By Terence Dooley

Ricky ‘The Hitman’ Hatton believes that Bury’s Scott Quigg can follow in his footsteps by bringing a world crown to Greater Manchester.  Quigg pounded out a  seventh-round TKO win over Franklin Varela at Bury’s Castle leisure centre on Saturday night in order to sharpen his tools ahead of an October 8th British 122lb title challenge to cagey veteran Jason Booth.

Hatton believes that Venezuela’s Varela provided the perfect foil for his 22-0 (15) charge and has pegged Scott for the top.  “I’m very proud of him.  He was exceptional.  That was a [WBA] world title eliminator.  The calibre of the opponent was not your every day run of the mill type,” said Hatton when speaking to the Manchester Evening News.

“Scott is a work in progress.  It doesn’t mean we necessarily have to go for the world title.  But to win in the manner he did in a world title eliminator speaks volumes for the rate he’s improving.  The manner in which he’s winning at the level he’s at shows he can go to the next level.”

Quigg is now trained by Pat Barrett and Thomas McDonagh, Brian Hughes MBE guided the 22-year-old until recently but his retirement has left Scott's future in the capable hands of two of Brian's former fighters.

It's a shame he's had so many fights, a fight for every year he's been alive. Next fight is against Booth though, great fight. I hope he comes through it and looks good, then keep the level of competition consistent if not higher.

I’m from Bury myself and he fights down the rd from me at the castle leisure centre, that was probably his last fight there I would imagine. He has good accuracy and a bit of pop and he is only 22 so he has lots to learn still, however I would like to see him in against Rendall Munroe befo...

Not to mention he's only 22 years old.

Quigg's looked good since stepping up, wide decision over Sassou and recently stopped Varela. Quigg vs Varela, watch Roberts too.

I have never seen this guy fight. Is he any good?
