Scott Quigg Targets Invasion of The United States

Scott Quigg will target a big fight in America next year after his superb stoppage win over Rendall Munroe on Saturday.

Munroe was expected to give the unbeaten Quigg a stern test, but the former world title challenger wilted under a barrage of body shots and two knockdowns signalled the end of the fight in the sixth round.

Quigg's win earned him the WBA interim super-bantamweight belt and his manager Paul Speak hopes the Bury fighter will get the chance to showcase his skills Stateside as he pursues a world title shot in 2013.

Speak told The Bolton News: "I'm sure from that performance that the Americans will be watching and wondering.

"It's down to (promoters) Team Hatton to come up with an opponent and tell us where they see him going, but I don't think it's going to be too far away before he is going across to fight in America."

Quigg became the first man to stop Munroe, who went 12 rounds with former WBC champion Toshiaki Nishioka, and the 24-year-old believes he has the punch power needed to mix at the top level.

"That was my best performance yet and I think it showed that (my goal of being world champion in 2013) is a realistic expectation," he said.

"Munroe is tough, no-one has ever stopped him before, but I was hurting him and it shows I have the power to go up a level.

"I've always dreamed of being a world champion. I want to beat all the top guys in the division, that's who I want to be able to mix with, and this performance proves I'm on the right track."

I hate seeing someone with a record like Quigg's, can't help but feel all those earlier fights instilled complacency into his work. He'd do well to seek opponents from outside of Europe at this weight, bring in some tough Thais…

Quigg should have taken a low key undercard fight in the USA when he was training @ the wild card. Gary Hyde also told me he offered both Quigg & Munroe fight with Rigo in the UK & they both…

[QUOTE=jsfd26;12741186]Weren't Frampton and Martinez supposed to fight before? Or maybe Im thinking of a different fight. Anyway, Rigo-Frampton would probably be better off overseas. Rigo already traveled for Casey so why not.[/QUOTE] They've been signed to fight twice but it's…

[QUOTE=IronDanHamza;12741177]Frampton's fighting Martinez next. Rigondeaux's got a big fight with Poonsawat. Should both win, I'd like to see it next whilst hopefully Mares and Donaire can fight.[/QUOTE] Weren't Frampton and Martinez supposed to fight before? Or maybe Im thinking of…
