Scott Quigg moves to Matchroom Boxing, looks to get career back on track

Scott Heavey

Super bantamweight prospect Scott Quigg is ready to get his career moving again, as he has signed with Matchroom Boxing, leaving Hatton Promotions.

Scott Quigg has sat too long, and his career had stalled out due to a lack of TV opportunities for promoter Ricky Hatton. That's in the past now, though, as Quigg has signed a new deal with Matchroom Boxing, opening him up as a featured player on Sky Sports.

Quigg (25-0-1, 18 KO) hasn't fought since November, when he outclassed veteran Rendall Munroe on the Hatton-Senchenko undercard. With Hatton Promotions freezed out of Sky, and there being no relationship between Hatton and old promoter Frank Warren, who owns BoxNation, Quigg's TV opportunities -- and thus his fight opportunities -- were not just severely limited, they were essentially non-existent.

Quigg will return on June 29 in Bolton, a card headlined by Gavin Rees vs Anthony Crolla. Quigg is understandably excited to get his career moving again.

"I've got the same hunger as always and I just want to get active again and I think Matchroom Sport and Sky Sports is the place to get that. I can't wait to get back in there, that's where I'm at home and I've missed it.

"We're getting the ball rolling in Bolton. I've had one fight in a year so it's about getting the momentum going and looking to make waves in the division again.

"I came into boxing wanting to be a world champion, I don't want to settle at British or European - I've come in to be the best. You might need a bit of luck here and there but I think I have the ability and I know I have the desire and dedication to make it happen."

The one downside here is that with Carl Frampton jumping to Warren, Quigg's move to Matchroom again puts the kibosh on that fight, which is probably the biggest 122-pound fight in the world right now.
