Scott Quigg Vs Juno Carroll Scheduled For March 7 In Manchester
Super featherweight contenders Scott Quigg and Jono Carroll will square of in a massive England Vs Ireland clash at the Manchester Stadium on Saturday Match 7th Live on DAZN in The US and Skysports In the UK.
Former Super Bantamweight Champion Scott Quigg, who defended his title five times before losing it to Carl Frampton in a unification battle back in 2016, will be kicking on his Journey of becoming a two division champion when he squares of with Carroll.
Quigg lost a unanimous decision to WBO featherweight champion Oscar Valdez in his last outing but but has now taken the available opportunity for a shot at a title at super featherweight.
Quigg was however, very happy to return to the ring after a year long layoff, which was due to an injury and can’t wait to get in the ring to pick apart the former title challenger in his new division.
“I’m looking forward to making my return after having 16 months out the ring due to the injury I suffered early last year,” said Quigg. “Unfortunately the injury reoccurred before the Saudi Arabia show but the arm is fully healed now and I’m already in great shape about to start camp.
“This is a fight I’m really excited about. I’m looking forward to getting in there and taking him apart and showing that despite being out the ring for over a year and the injury, there is still a lot left in the tank.
“I’ve got everything fully focussed on March 7 to put in a career best performance! It’s great to be back fighting and headlining at Manchester Arena again and for my supporters to be able to see me back fighting on UK soil. It’s a great platform for me to launch my career forward again and get my name back in the mix for a World Title shot.”

Jono Carroll on the other hand will be hoping to build on the his win over Eleazer Valenzuela which came after he lost a world title challenge against IBF super featherweight champion Tevin Farmer back in March 2019.
Carroll made clear he doesn’t have a much information about his opponent but says he knows more about himself and will never allow Quigg to defeat him as he is ready to study the former world champion and defeat him in his own game.
“I haven’t necessarily learned anything extra about Scott Quigg since we were first due to fight, but I have learned more about myself – how much I want this life and what I’m willing to give up in order to accomplish my dreams and goals,” said Carroll.
“I understand I need to be ready all the time and so does my partner, so I was training the day before Christmas and then I jumped on a plane out to America to help Tevin Farmer prepare for his fight the day after Christmas
“I love Christmas and I just bought my first house in Spain, so it was quite special to wake up in my own home on Christmas morning and appreciate what’s around me.
“Now it’s time for the next step. I know my worth as a person and as a boxer. I won’t let Quigg beat me no matter what type of fight it has to be. I’m good at adapting so I will see what he’s good at and then take that away from him.”
Full details and fight card information will be made known in the coming weeks.
