Quigg Reflects on Loss to Frampton

This morning I imagine Scott Quigg will wake up wondering where it all went wrong for him last night.

Ahead of the bout Quigg had spoken about taking his rival out by a knockout and beating him so badly he wouldn’t want to fight him again. A boast Quigg, unfortunately didn’t live up to. Instead he saw his WBA title slip away and his unbeaten record gone, in front of a 20,000 crowd that contained more Frampton supporters than Quigg supporters.

Quigg, in summarising the fight, was slow off the blocks and let Frampton take charge of the early rounds, neither boxer threw too much leather but Quigg simply didn’t throw enough.

After the fight, Quigg in assessing what had happened had this to say about that first defeat in thirty-four professional fights,

'The rematch is the fight I want, I 100% think I can beat him.

'The first four or five rounds was a bit of a chess match. He was probably being a bit busier but nothing was landing and I felt comfortable.

'At the end of the fourth round he caught me with a peach of an uppercut that did my jaw. I wanted to start going through the gears but we had to revaluate and be a bit more careful for a bit longer.'


The suggestion is that Quigg suffered a broken jaw courtesy of that fourth round upper-cut, an injury that saw the Bury fighter retreat a little more.

As for his future, Quigg would, as you’d expect, like the verbal re-match both camps decided on if the fight warranted it and further remarked,

'A rematch remains the biggest fight and we had an agreement that if the TV broadcaster wanted to see it again, we'd go to Belfast.

'But we've got options. Frampton's not going to fight Rigondeaux, so that's a possibility, and [WBO champion] Nonito Donaire is also an option.'


Now if only Quigg had of started round one like he performed in the latter rounds, things might have been so different.
