Josh Warrington went into the Lee Selby fight as an underdog with many boxing experts predicting that Selby was going to box Warrington to a point’s decision.
Warrington rose to the occasion with the rapturous Leeds support behind him to put on a spectacular and dominant performance to win by split decision.
Scott Quigg was surprised at the outcome.
He told Ringnews24.com:
“I was surprised; I was backing Selby to win, I thought he’d win. It was irrelevant who won to me, but one I did see Selby winning. Warrington showed something he’s not shown before. He boxed a very good fight. “
Frank Warren said post-fight that he’d like to bring big boxing nights back to Elland Road and the city of Leeds. Quigg is interested in fighting the new IBF champion, Josh Warrington and predicts it would be comfortable nights work.
“Without a doubt [interested in world title fight], I’d snatch your hand off for that fight. I believe I’d beat him and beat him comfortably. That’s not saying it would be an easy fight. I believe I’ve got the beaten of him. He’s an improving fighter – I’d snatch your hand off for that fight. I definitely believe I’ve got the beaten of him. “
The Bury boxer shared when he would like to return to the ring.
“If they want to offer the Frampton fight, that’s not a problem – I’d be ready for the 18th of August. If not, I’ll probably be back out the back end of September or the middle of September.”
Quigg’s wants to become world champion and he has made that his goal for 2018.
“I want to get back boxing – My ultimate goal is to become world champion. It’s just about getting a good win under my belt and getting them big fights. I’d love to avenge both losses and hopefully if I can get the rematch against Frampton so be it. If not, I’ll fight someone in the top 10 to get myself back up there and make another assault on the top names in the division. “
