Jono Carroll was fighting for the first time since being outclassed by Tevin Farmer a year ago while Quigg was fighting for the first time in almost two years with injuries being the primary reason for his absence.
Quigg was fighting against all odds being four years older in age and was two divisions above the division he ones held a world title coupled with injuries that almost ended his professional career.
Quigg almost anounced his retirement after the fight but stopped in his tracks as there still seem some unfinished business for him to settle in the squared circle.
“As soon as I got in there, from after the fourth round, I didn’t feel like it was there,” Quigg said to Andy Scott of Sky Sports, afterwards. “I was just chasing it. But no excuses, the better man won. “Training had gone fantastic with Joe, but doing it in the gym is totally different to doing it in here. “Fitness-wise, conditioning-wise, there was no problem, it was just the timing. From the fourth round on I was thinking this is going to be a long night.
“I’m a realist, I don’t kid anyone. There are no rash decisions, this was a must-win fight and I believe me at my peak and me at my best would have won here tonight, no problem. That’s taking nothing away from Jono, I think he has a good career ahead of him, but in my day, I believe he wouldn’t have lived with me.
Carroll made his intent known from the opening bell, quickly picking apart Quigg’s defence in the first round landing his left hand and uppercut. However, that was retaliated by Quigg, who picked up in the second round.
Quigg was the best in the second round, but that was all he had to offer the fans as he was practically beaten and dominated to the eleventh round stoppage.
