QUIGG: “TIME FOR ME TO PUT UP OR SHUT UP”
SCOTT QUIGG admits that he must deliver when he faces former boxing binman Rendall Munroe next week.
The classy pair for the vacant interim WBA super-bantamweight title at Manchester Velodrome on Saturday June 16 in a brilliant domestic match-up.
Unbeaten British champion Quigg doesn’t have the experience of Leicester’s former European champion, but believes lonely training trips to Los Angeles will pay off.
Bury’s Quigg, 23, said: “I know what I am capable of from when I went to America and sparred with Guillermo Rigondeaux and Jose Benavidez.
“They are better fighters than Rendall and I have held my own with them in the gym.
“Nobody has seen me do it at that level in the ring because I have not had the chance.
“Now I have - it is time to put up or shut up. I need to step up.”
The talent stacked ‘Road To Glory’ card is Hatton Promotions biggest so far, and there will be even bigger shows later this year.
There are three other big fights on the bill including Sheffield’s Ryan Rhodes challenging Sergey Rabchenko for the vacant European light-middleweight championship.
Ryan’s fellow steel city fighter Richard Towers squares off against Frenchman Gregory Tony for the vacant EU heavyweight crown.
In a special attraction unbeaten British middleweight champion Martin Murray meets French title holder Karim Achour.
Other fights: Craig Watson v Tomasz Mazurciewicz, Lucas Browne v Hastings Rasani, Adam Etches v S/O, Scott Jenkins v Kristian Laight, Adam Little v Dee Mitchell, Kallum De’Ath v Anwar Alfadi and Louis Norman v Brett Fido.

[QUOTE=BostonGuy;12216740]I h8 when Boxingscene does this: they run a press release that's been written by the fighter's promoter that makes false claims.
