Glover Spars Quigg In Warm-Up To Pickering Test

Tipton’s Lee Glover has been enjoying world champion class sparring as he prepares to take on a former world title challenger and European Number One at Walsall Town Hall later this month.

‘The Tipton Slasher’ travelled to Joe Gallagher’s gym in Bolton to spar WBA super bantamweight title holder, Scott Quigg, recently.

Quigg is preparing for a fourth defence of his title against Hidenori Otake on 22nd November whilst Glover is preparing to take on Esham ‘Brown Sugar’ Pickering a week later at the top of Black Country Boxing’s Bad Blood in the Black Country show.

Lewkowicz: Escandon vs. Cave is a WBA Super Bantamweight Elimination Bout Winner to Face Champion Scott Quigg Next Year

Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing, promoter of Colombian slugger Oscar Escandon and Canadian southpaw Tyson “Prince of Hali” Cave, wishes to correct erroneous reports about the pair’s upcoming showdown.

Escandon (23-1, 16 KOs) and Cave (22-2, 6 KOs) will meet on Thursday, December 11, in one of the featured bouts when Goossen Promotions returns to the Pechanga Resort and Casino in Temecula, California, for “NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS” a three-hour ESPN Boxing Special, televised LIVE on ESPN 2, ESPN Deportes and WatchESPN beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT.

“The fight between Oscar Escandon and Tyson Cave is not for the Interim title, it is a 12-round World Boxing Association Super Bantamweight Eliminator,” said Lewkowicz. “The WBA has already approved that the winner of this fight will then face the champion, Scott Quigg, next year.”

Quigg faces Hidenori Otake in Liverpool

Scott Quigg will defend his WBA World Super Bantamweight title against Japan’s Hidenori Otake at the sold-out Echo Arena in Liverpool on November 22, live on Sky Sports Box Office.

Quigg defends his title for the fifth time against Otake, ranked at number three with the IBF and coming to England off the back of four successful defences of the Japanese title he claimed in August 2012.

Frampton v Quigg is No 50:50 Fight

Scott Quigg is a nice guy.  The number of fighters, managers, promoters and pundits to preface an opinion on the Bury boxer with a comment on his affability means that, despite having never met the man, I take his genuine pleasantness as read.

Pronouncements of his niceness from rival camps are, of course, more often than not a polite proviso rather than an unalloyed compliment.  Something along the lines of, Scott’s a great guy, inevitably followed by, but I’ll knock him out or he’s not in my class, is par for the course. 

But in the boxing press, the good egg line is actually very rarely a sheepish qualification of a more damning passage on the fighter in question.  Put simply, nice boxers get an easier ride off those paid to fill the column inches.

Matchroom Kick-Off with a Double-Header

Matchroom Boxing promotes its first show of the new season on Saturday at the Manchester Arena and features local fighters Anthony Crolla and Scott Quigg in co-headline fights against overseas opponents.  Crolla defends his WBO inter-continental belt against veteran Mexican Gamaliel Diaz at lightweight, whilst Quigg defends his WBA super-bantamweight title against blown-up bantamweight Stephane Jamoye from Belgium.  Both fights are, of course, over the full 12-round distance.  The show will be televised live in the UK on Sky Television.

Quigg: After I KO Jamoye, I’ll take Frampton out

Scott Quigg has fired a warning to Carl Frampton: “after I beat Stephane Jamoye, I’m taking your World title.”

Quigg defends his WBA World Super Bantamweight title against the Belgian live on Sky Sports from the Phones 4u Arena in Manchester, and the Bury star is targeting a unification clash with the newly-crowned IBF champion from Belfast after he does the business on Saturday night.

The 25 year old is hunting a hat-trick of stoppage wins in his fourth defence of the title, and believes that the time is right for him and Frampton to get in the ring and settle their brewing rivalry.
