Scott Quigg defends his British super bantamweight title today on Sky Sports against former British featherweight contender Jamie Arthur, and Bad Left Hook will have live coverage this afternoon, with resident British boxing prognosticator Dave Oakes leading the coverage. Here are the details on how to watch:
Fight time: 3:00 p.m. EST
Location: Reebok Stadium - Bolton, England
TV channel: Sky Sports 1 (United Kingdom)
Odds: Quigg is an enormous favorite, anywhere between -2000 and -3200. In other words, it's being chalked up as a certain victory, with no doubt about it.
Undercard: Former world title challenger Rendall Munroe (23-2, 9 KO) faces Argentina's Jose Saez (21-12-6, 11 KO) in a third straight tune-up sort of fight following his loss to Toshiaki Nishioka. Cruiserweight prospect Matty Askin (12-0, 8 KO) takes on Attila Palko (12-1, 10 KO) of Hungary. Bantamweight Craig Lyon (12-1-1, 4 KO) looks to get his first win in three outings, facing veteran Yuriy Voronin (21-13-2, 16 KO). And former European super featherweight champ Stephen Foster Jr (28-3-1, 18 KO) meets Yauheni Kruhlik (10-13-3, 2 KO) in a bounce-back fight.
Here's a bit from Dave Oakes' preview of the fight:
If Arthur still has the desire to become a champion, he could put up a sterling effort, even if it’s most likely to be in vain. If Arthur doesn’t have the fire in his belly, Quigg could steam roll him. One senses it could be somewhere between the two, Arthur giving it a go in the first four rounds but going into his shell as he realises the monumental task in front of him. Arthur will put in a brave effort but Quigg will take him places he doesn’t want to be, forcing a stoppage from either the referee or Arthur’s corner around the ninth round.
Quigg vs Arthur will be part of a huge, full day of live coverage at Bad Left Hook, so join us for all the action.
