SCOTT QUIGG’S showdown against Franklin Varela next month will be a WBA world title eliminator.

The 22-year-old will also risk WBA intercontinental super-bantamweight title against the Venezuelan in his hometown at Bury’s Castle Leisure Centre on Saturday July 23.

But crucially the prestigious governing body have made the bout an eliminator for Japanese star Akifumi Shimoda’s WBA world crown.

In the organisation’s latest published rankings Scott is ranked seventh, with Varela just behind him at number 11.

Whoever wins the Bury brawl will be elevated higher and closing in on the winner of Shimoda’s defence next month against number one contender Rico Ramos.

Quigg who is also due to meet British champion Jason Booth in October has won all 21 pro fights.

He said after receiving the news from Hatton Promotions agent Philippe Fondu: “I am buzzing about the news and Hatton Promotions have delivered yet again.”

Varela has won 19 of his 24 contests and Hatton Promotions President Ricky Hatton added: “We have moved Scot along steadily, but now he is in world class and will prove it against Varela.”

The last few for show which will not be televised are priced £75(VIP Ringside), £55 (Ringside) and £35 General admission and available from www.brandhatton.com   /0844 847 2500/ 01925 755222
