Scott Quigg to face Yoandris Salinas for vacant WBA title

Paul Thomas

Scott Quigg signing with Matchroom Boxing has turned out to be a quick career fix, as the 24-year-old prospect/contender will fight for a vacant world title against Yoandris Salinas in the United Kingdom. A date and venue have not been announced, but the fighters have agreed to terms.

The belt up for grabs is the WBA title. Guillermo Rigondeaux holds the "super" version of that belt, so obviously we need a "regular" champion. Quigg (26-0-1, 19 KO) had languished over the last year or so with Hatton Promotions, as his promoter simply couldn't get him TV dates or big fights any longer, and his move to Matchroom saw him quickly get back into the ring on June 29, where he knocked out William Prado in three rounds.

Salinas (20-0-1, 13 KO) is a 27-year-old Cuban who has been fighting outside of the United States for the last few years, and not against stiff opposition. He's still entirely unproven as a pro, and bottom line is we're not talking about another Rigondeaux or Yuriorkis Gamboa here, most likely.
