Scott Quigg without an opponent again

Scott Quigg was due to defend his regular WBA junior featherweight title against Paulus Ambunda on September 13 but, for the second straight time, his opponent has pulled out at short notice. According to Ambunda’s team the former WBO bantamweight title holder has sustained a hamstring injury during training.

Quigg, rated No. 4 by THE RING, suffered an identical setback in April when scheduled foe Nehomar Cermeno withdrew due to visa issues. On that occasion South African Tshifhiwa Munyai filled the void and it remains to be seen who will step up to the plate on this occasion.

It’s horrible news for Quigg (28-0-2, 22 knockouts) who is desperate to secure a lucrative fight and regain some momentum. The unbeaten boxer puncher from Bury, England is due to headline a show in Manchester, which will also feature lightweight Anthony Crolla and Olympic gold medalist Anthony Joshua.

 

[Editor’s Note: THE RING only recognizes Guillermo Rigondeaux as the WBA titleholder at 122 pounds.]
