Scott Quigg vs. Paulus Ambunda Set, 9/13 In Manchester

By Jake Donovan

The mystery has been resolved regarding the next opponent for unbeaten 122 lb. titlist Scott Quigg, who will face Namibia's Paulus Ambunda in a September 13 title defense at Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England. 

Quigg (28-0-2, 21KOs) makes the third defense of the alphabet strap he formally acquired a year ago, with all three defenses now coming at the Phones 4U Arena. 

Ambunda (21-1, 10KOs), a former bantamweight belt holder who moved up in weight earlier this year, fights outside of Namibia for just the second time in his career. The previous road trip ended his brief title reign, dropping a 12-round decision to Tomoki Kameda in the Philippines last August.

The evening's chief support pits Anthony Crolla in a 12-round lightweight bout with former 130 lb. titlist Gamaliel Diaz.

“We are excited to be back in Manchester in September for another big night,” said promoter Eddie Hearn in an press statement. “Scott and Anthony are becoming regular fixtures at the arena with great support and both are in major fights on September 13. Scott is in scintillating form and ready to stamp his authority on the division – while Anthony has another tough fight against former World Champ Diaz who mixed with the likes of Robert Guerrero, Jorge Linares and Humberto Soto before travelling to Japan to win the WBC title.˝

The show will air live on Sky Sports in the UK.

This is why Dirk Diggler refused to bet me when I said that Quigg wouldn't fight Frampton next. Smart move, Dirk.

[QUOTE=daggum;14827643]the thing is quigg doesn't even have a legit belt yet. he's the regular champ which is basically a fancier way of saying interim champ. maybe in robert guerrero land that counts but to me it doesn't.[/QUOTE] Oh, I agree…

[QUOTE=lazaron72;14827723]Quigg should have fought rigo or santacruz ; this is a joke of a fight . Quigg needs to man up and face a champ already . These promoters keep mismatching his boxers out of fear of loosing . :smashfrea:smashfrea[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=londoner;14827717]I like to watch Quigg fight but he's going along a similar path to that trodden by Ricky Hatton when Frank Warren had him playing to packed houses defending that phony WBU light-welter belt time after time against a range…
