Quigg vs Munyai: Challenger not worried about short notice

Golden Gloves

Tshifhiwa Munyai gets a big shot on Saturday when he faces Scott Quigg in Manchester, a fight that just came together last week.

Tshifhiwa Munyai is coming in this Saturday on short notice to challenge WBA super bantamweight titleholder Scott Quigg on the road in Manchester, England, but the 28-year-old "Atomic Spider" says the lack of notice won't trouble him on fight night.

"Taking fights at short notice is not a problem," said Munyai, a former IBO super-bantamweight champion. "As a professional boxer, I always stay at the gym even if I don't have a fight date.

"I've been praying for this chance. That's why I didn't think twice when the opportunity came knocking at my door," Munyai said.

Munyai (24-2-1, 12 KO) has won four in a row, and last lost in 2010, when he was beaten by Christian Esquivel in Mexico. For his career, he's 5-1 in the United Kingdom, 0-1 in Mexico, and 19-0-1 in South Africa. Munyai is a former Commonwealth bantamweight champ who beat Martin Power twice, and also defeated Lee Haskins in 2006-07.

Quigg (27-0-2, 20 KO) is currently between a -1200 and -2000 favorite.
