Quigg-Martinez, Crolla-Perez, Abraham-Stieglitz title tripleheader lands on Sky Sports

Scott Quigg and Anthony Crolla top an epic night of boxing on Sky Sports on July 18 – with three brilliant World title battles set to thrill fight fans.

At the Manchester Arena, Quigg defends his WBA World Super Bantamweight title against former IBF king Kiko Martinez while Anthony Crolla fights for his first World title against classy Colombian WBA Lightweight king Darleys Perez.

Over in Germany, the fourth installment of a classic modern day rivalry takes centre stage as Arthur Abraham defends his WBO World Super Middleweight title against Robert Stieglitz, exclusively aired in the UK on Sky Sports.

Guillermo Rigondeaux is heading to UK next month to publicly confront Scott Quigg

Unified super bantamweight world champion Guillermo “The Jackal” Rigondeaux (15-0, 10 KOs), arguably the most avoided reigning world title holder in modern boxing history, will travel to London next month in order to publicly confront his mandatory challenger, Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 KOs), the World Boxing Association (WBA) “regular” 122-pound division titlist.

A month ago in an unusual move, Rigondeaux’ manager Gary Hyde formally petitioned the WBA to enforce a mandatory title fight between his WBA Super champion and Quigg. Hyde is awaiting the WBA’s decision. Rigondeaux is also the World Boxing Organization (WBO) and The Ring magazine’s super bantamweight champion.

Gary Hyde wants Rigondeaux vs Quigg next

CORK, Ireland (March 12, 2015) – International boxing manager Gary Hyde, president of Nowhere2Hyde Management, has formally petitioned the World Boxing Association (WBA) to enforce a mandatory title fight between Hyde’s fighter, WBA Super & World Boxing Organization (WBO) super bantamweight champion Guillermo “The Jackal” Rigondeaux (15-0, 10 KOs), and WBA “regular” 122-pound division titlist Scott Quigg (30-0-2, 22 KOs).

Below find a copy of Hyde’s letter to the WBA:

Quigg targets summer return

Scott Quigg is aiming to return to the ring next summer following successful surgery on a hand injury picked up in his WBA Super Bantamweight title defence against Hidenori Otake in Liverpool last month.

The Bury man has enjoyed a fruitful 2014, defending his World title on three occasions. In April South African danger man Tshifhiwa Munyai was sent packing in just two rounds, and in September Stephane Jamoye lasted only three rounds. In Liverpool last month Quigg completed his year with a wide points win over Hidenori Otake.

Scott Quigg wins a wide points decision over Hidenori Othake

Scott Quigg defended his WBA Super Bantamweight title for the fifth time with a wide points win over Hidenori Othake at the Echo Arena in Liverpool, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Quigg peppered the Japanese champion from start to finish, but the courageous visitor would not be removed despite a nasty cut over the right eye that the doctors had several looks at in the last few rounds.

Japanese champion wants to be a history maker on Saturday

Hidenori Othake takes on Scott Quigg for the WBA Bantamweight title – and the Japanese star wants to become a history maker on Saturday night at the sold out Echo Arena in Liverpool, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

This is only the second time in boxing history that a Japanese boxer has come to England to challenge for the World title, the first was Mitsunori Seki, who was stopped in nine rounds by Howard Winstone way back in 1968 for the vacant WBC Featherweight crown.

Othake knows he has a tough task ahead of him against Quigg who has stopped his last three challengers and is a brutal body puncher, but the Japanese champion is expecting to cause an upset on Merseyside.
