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.

All VIP and ringside tickets have been sold and. The remaining tickets are available priced at £55, £35 and £30, but are limited.  You can purchase tickets by calling Hatton Promotions hotline 01925 755 222/www.ticketmaster.co.uk/0844 847 2500/www.ticketline.co.uk/0844 888 4402/www.hmv.com

Even the contenders are world champions. I feel Hennessy is the weakest out of the main British promoters and I'm perplexed at the fact he was given the opportunity to showcase his fighters on C5. Tyson Fury, while an entertaining…

[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. Really, I didn't know Fury was "heavyweight champion." In what universe is he that?...:ugh:[/QUOTE] Everyone is a champion…

The last time a big name heavyweight fought in the west country was when Frank Bruno flattened Rodolfo Marin in the first round at Shepton Mallet 17 years ago. Knowing the way Hennessy works, he's likely trying to get Marin…
