Scott Quigg Drills Jose Cayatano in Featherweight Debut

Manchester Arena, Manchester - Former world champion Scott Quigg (32-1-2, 24KOs), now in the featherweight ranks, captured the vacant WBA International title, with a ninth round knockout of Jose Cayetano (20-5, 9KOs)

Quigg has been out of the ring since suffering his first career defeat at the hands of Carl Frampton back in February in their super bantamweight unification. He suffered a broken jaw in the fight and needed months to recover from surgery. He made a decision to move up featherweight, where Frampton moved to earlier this year.


Quigg was taking the fight to Cayetano in the early going, but he wasn't able to do much damage. Cayetano was able to take his power, but he didn't have the power himself to do damage on Quigg. Cayetano's durability was no surprise, since he's never been stopped in his career.

Quigg's face was showing the signs of damage in the eight, but he wasn't being affected by the punches that were landing on him. During the ninth, Quigg landed a hug counter that Cayatano that sent down on his back. He was laid out against the ropes and made no real effort to get back on his feet and the referee waved off the contest.

Quigg's face might let him down again if he can't slip a punch. Defense! We know you have heart, now move your head.
