Quigg Injured, Withdraws From Carroll Fight on Ruiz-Joshua Bill

Fomer world champion Scott Quigg has continued his run of bad luck with injuries.

Quigg, 31-years-old, been forced to pull out of his scheduled fight with Jono Carroll in Saudi Arabia next month.

The fight was part of the undercard to the Andy Ruiz vs. Anthony Joshua rematch on December 7.

Quigg announced that a recurring elbow issue forced his hand to walk away from the fight.

He was already scheduled to fight back in April against Jayson Velez and withdrew with the same injury.

The withdrawal has seen his last fight take place back in October 2018, when he knocked out Mario Briones in Boston.

“I am extremely disappointed to announce I will not be fighting on December 7 in Saudi Arabia,” Quigg stated.

“My arm needs further time to rehabilitate. I’ve followed the rehabilitation programme and everything was looking great. I went to the specialist at the start of camp and again four weeks later, everything was looking and feeling good.

“In a sparring session last week I felt a rip in my elbow. I have a recurring injury to my left distal tendon, which is going to need four to six weeks of rest.

“Unfortunately it is going to put me back out until the new year. I’m absolutely gutted as I was ready to get back in the ring and lock horns with Jono.

“Hopefully this fight can be rescheduled for next year in the first quarter of the year. I’ll be ready to get back in the ring. Thanks for all the continued support.”
