Scott Quigg vs. Jose Cayetano, Luis Ortiz vs. David Allen official for December 10th

Quigg will be making his featherweight debut.

Scott Quigg and Luis Ortiz finally have opponents for December 10th’s blockbuster Anthony Joshua-Eric Molina card in Manchester. One is slightly better than the other.

Quigg (31-1-2, 23 KO), who hasn’t fought since suffering a broken jaw in his February grudge match with Carl Frampton, will make his featherweight debut against Jose Cayetano (20-4, 9 KO). Though you may remember Cayetano from his one-sided loss to Leo Santa Cruz last year, he did manage to upset Alexis Santiago two months ago. He’s not really a featherweight, regularly competing at super bantamweight, but there are worse picks on three weeks’ notice.

Like, for example, David Allen (9-1-1, 6 KO), who has been condemned booked to fight Ortiz (26-0, 22 KO). "The White Rhino," every bit as endangered as his namesake, lost a one-sided fight to Dillian Whyte four months ago, has only ever been booked past six rounds twice, and his best win is over Jason Gavern.

He should put up a more entertaining fight than Malik Scott, at least.

Along with these two bouts, the card features two world title fights, three British title fights, and Katie Taylor’s second pro fight.
