Earlier this month, former world champion Scott Quigg (31-1-2, 23KOs) expressed his interest in a clash with WBA 'regular' super bantamweight champion Nehomar Cermeno (25-5-1, 15KOs), who earlier today retained his title with a three round knockout of Thai challenger Anurak Thisa in Wenzhou, China.

Quigg has been out of the ring since suffering his first career defeat to Carl Frampton back in February. He suffered a badly broken jaw in the loss and needed several months of recovery time. Plans are being put together to have Quigg back in the ring on November 26th as part of the Anthony Joshua undercard in Manchester.

There is also the possibility that Quigg would make the jump to the featherweight limit of 126-pounds, where Frampton landed in July with a twelve round decision over Leo Santa Cruz to capture the WBA championship at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Quigg and Cermeno were in line to fight each other two years ago, but the fight fell through after Cermeno had visa issues.

Quigg told Sky Sports: "I was supposed to fight him once before and it never materialised I think due to visa problems at the time. It's a world title fight, so I would snap their hand off for it. It's just about making the decision for me body-wise. I've been making super-bantam for 10 years now. I believe I can still make it, but it's just making sure it doesn't take anything out of me."

According to WBA president Gilberto Mendoza, Cermeno is willing to fight Quigg next.

"That fight had to happen a long time ago, but it's funny, now the roles have changed," Mendoza told Sky Sports. "Now the regular champion is Cermeno and Quigg will be the challenger."

"Quigg will have a better chance to face Nehomar Cermeno. Guillermo Rigondeaux (WBA super champion) and Moises Flores are negotiating to fight now and then after they are supposed to fight Cermeno. But in the meantime, Cermeno has a commitment to fight in September against a Thai opponent in China. If he's the winner, he would like to fight Quigg."
