Scott Quigg defends his British super bantamweight title today against Jamie Arthur in Bolton, live on Sky Sports, and Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage. Dave Oakes will handle the round-by-round duties.
The fight will go live at 3 p.m. EST.
Here's a snip from Dave's preview of the fight:
Arthur has slight height and reach advantages over Quigg, though Quigg is the much more powerful physically and in terms of punch power. Quigg is also the fresher fighter and looks to be the hungrier - Arthur’s coquetry with retirement may be a sign that he’s not as ambitious as he once was, although we won’t be able to tell until fight night.
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.
