Scott Quigg, Servania Go Toe To Toe at Wild Card

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

Undefeated WBO Intercontinental super bantamweight champion Genesis "Azukal" Servania had the opportunity of going toe-to-toe with reigning WBA World Super bantamweight Champion, Scott Quigg of the United Kingdom in what was described as
"a well-applauded 4 round sparring session."
 
The sparring session took place at the Wild Card Gym of Freddie Roach in Los Angeles. The 22- year-old Servania, who has a record of 23-0 with 9 knockouts, refused to be awed by the 25-year-old world champion Quigg who has a record of 27-0-2 with 20 knockouts.

Quigg won the world title with a 2nd round TKO of Argentine Diego Oscar Silva whom he dropped twice in round two to earn a stoppage at 1:41 of the round.

Villamor told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard that the fast-rising Servania and World Champion Quigg who are both undefeated "entertained the onlookers with their torrid exchange of blows with no let-up."

Servania and Quigg complimented each other after sparring and agreed to spar again before Servania and Milan Melindo leave for Tijuana, Mexico next week to spar with a roster of Mexican fighters.

Former flyweight challenger Milan Melindo sparred with former WBO/WBA flyweight champion Brian Viloria and two-time Olympic gold medalist and Freddie Roach protege Zou Shiming at the Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles.

Trainer Edito "Ala" Villamor in a brief note said Melindo held his own against the two top flyweights going two rounds with each of them.

Melindo had earlier engaged a promising and undefeated Mexican in a previous soarring session where Villamor said "Milan simply concentrated on his defense and his methodical punching easing up f rom time to time against his younger sparmate."

[QUOTE=mattspencer;14162491]Can someone explain the WBA situation?[/QUOTE] This isn't a full explanation by any means, but rather than having one world champion, the WBA have a "Super" champion and a "Regular" champion. Froch and Quigg are regular world champions, Rigondeaux and…
