Hatton undercard: Scott Quigg '100% confident' of win over Rendall Munroe

Scott Quigg discusses tomorrow's fight with Rendall Munroe, which has been months in the making for the second time this year.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Kugan Cassius, iFilm London: "How are you, Scott?"

Scott Quigg: "Good. I feel good."

Cassius: "You've just weighed in. Could you tell what Rendall was feeling in the stare-off?"

Quigg: "Yeah, he's up for the fight, same as me. It looks like he's looking forward to it. It's going to be a cracking fight, but it's one that I'm 100% confident that I'm going to win."

Cassius: "What sort of physical condition did you think Rendall was in?"

Quigg: "Same as me, he's a professional and he takes his job seriously. He loves what he does and you can see that with the shape he's in, but he's in no better shape than me."

Cassius: "Obviously this Quigg and Munroe saga has been going on for a long time now, so finally going to be put to bed tomorrow night."

Quigg: "It's been a long time. We had the last fight, and due to that we've had to wait and prepare again for this. Tomorrow night it's going to be put to bed once and for all. I'm confident it's going to be me who is the winner."

Cassius: "What are you going to be doing between now and fight night?"

Quigg: "Relaxing, enjoying myself. Just chilling out. Having a refueling and resting."

Cassius: "Getting your ear chewed off by Joe Gallagher."

Quigg: "You could be right. I'll switch my phone off, though."

Cassius: "Does he talk as much in real life to people as he does in interviews?"

Quigg: "Oh, he does, yeah. If you want to see a glass eye talked to sleep, just put one in front of him."

Cassius: "He can't really hear what we're saying, but he'll watch this later and think, 'You bastards.' I spoke to you before you won your award, but I haven't spoken to you since you picked up your award at the Boxing Writers dinner. Congratulations. It was quite an emotional speech from yourself."

Quigg: "It's one of them -- I live and breathe the sport. It means a lot. Receiving that award and looking around the room, and seeing what fighters past and present have won it, I'm very lucky. I was honored to get the award. There's been a lot of hard work and no one will understand how much my parents have backed me. I dropped out of school, and they backed my decision to do that. People would think they're bad parents for letting me do that. This is why to this day I keep myself grounded and dedicated, and put all the hard work in. Tomorrow night when I walk out, I'm going to bring that belt home from them. They're going to be proud of me, proud of their son."
