Scott Quigg Pleased With Win, May Return on July 13th

Scott Quigg made an impressive debut under the Matchroom banner with a third round stoppage victory over William Prado in Bolton.

Quigg had not been active since beating Rendall Munroe last year but a change of promoter means the 25-year-old is back on the world title trail.

The Bury banger is poised to fight for the WBA super-bantamweight title later this year and he looked razor sharp against the Brazilian Prado, who came to fight.

Prado began with aggressive intent while Quigg took three minutes to size up his opponent behind a sharp jab.

However he stepped it up in the second round and when he brought the right hand into play the power was clearly there, and after some early successes Prado went down to straight right just before the bell.

The third also saw Quigg dominate as he worked the body with fierce left hooks before following up with those cuffing rights, and Prado was already in trouble before a right hook ended matters late in the session.

It was an impressive finish and Quigg moves to 26-0 with one technical draw, and promoter Eddie Hearn is hoping to squeeze him onto the big outdoors show in Hull on July 13.

"He's never been stopped before, he's tough but I don't think he'd ever been hit that often and I broke him down in three rounds basically," he told Sky Sports.

"I think I was punch-perfect - tell a lie I got caught flush by a jab - but pretty much punch perfect. I've improved so much since the Munroe fight, I've been inactive in the ring but been working hard in the gym.

"With the variety I don't think he knew where the shots were coming from."

So another short notice bum fight for a Hearn fighter. I get that he's trying to build hype for his guys but there is no reason that he cant wait a while and get a decent opponent who has time for a proper training camp. Still waiting on Groves to step up a level tbh

Has Quigg ever fought outside of the north of England? Rigo Would batter him 100%. I had a lot of respect for Scott, but he's been mis managed.
