Quigg vs Munroe Video: Scott Quigg Prepares For Biggest Fight

While we'll still have plenty on the Pacquiao vs Bradley controversy and fallout, it's time also to remember that holy crap, you guys, there's still the rest of the sport of boxing, and this Saturday, there are three big cards that we'll be covering live. The first will be coming to you from Manchester, England, as super bantamweight prospect Scott Quigg looks to take perhaps a final step forward toward a world title shot, facing former title challenger Rendall Munroe.

Here's a short promotional video on Quigg, one of the top young talents in British boxing:


I know a few folks thought the stock on Quigg (24-0, 17 KO) dropped after his last bout, a tougher than expected battle with Jamie Arthur on February 4. And maybe it did just a bit, but as I said then, that's no big deal.

We're still talking about a talented, determined, 23-year-old fighter with a lot of upside. And though he was knocked down by Arthur, that came on a left hook he just didn't see, which happens, and after that it was all Scott Quigg in that fight. He dominated.

Munroe (24-2, 10 KO) is a new challenge, though. A tough, solid veteran, "The Boxing Binman" is a former European and Commonwealth champion who challenged Toshiaki Nishioka in Japan for the WBC title in 2010, losing a decision with no shame.

Apparently, the interim WBA title will be on the line here, even though titlist Guillermo Rigondeaux just fought on Saturday, destroying Teon Kennedy.

We'll have more on the Quigg vs Munroe card a little later today, as there are some familiar names featured on the undercard, and we'll have live round-by-round coverage of the Sky Sports broadcast on Saturday afternoon.
