Scott Quigg Not Taking Chances: Silva is a Big Threat

Scott Quigg is not taking any chances when he defends his WBA super-bantamweight title against Diego Silva of Argentina in Manchester on November 23. The fight will provide chief support to the headline clash between Carl Froch and George Groves at the Phones4U Arena, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Bury's Quigg was upgraded from interim champion prior to his draw with Yoandris Salinas in London last time out, and will be making his first defence of the full title. Silva, who has a 29-2 slate with four draws, has lost just once in six years to two-weight world champion Fernando Montiel, but has never fought outside of South America. However, he has fought only once this year and that was a 10-round draw in his native Buenos Aires.

Quigg told Sky Sports News: "Preparations are going well. Straight after the last fight we had a couple of days off and then straight back in the gym. We have been studying Diego now for a couple of weeks and training is going very well.

"He is a big threat. He is a totally different style to Yoandris Salinas. He is very unorthodox which means you can't read him he doesn't know what he is going to do next. He is one of them where you have got to make sure you prepare right and fully focus and you can't afford any slip ups.

"You always want to prove a point and better your performance from last time out. I do believe I won the fight last time out - it was a majority draw - I did feel that I did enough. I do want to go out and make a point and get the win as a world champion."
