Switching to the Matchroom stable has certainly paid dividends for Scott Quigg.

The Bury fighter, who parted company with Ricky Hatton?s promotion camp to move to the Eddie Hearn controlled Matchroom stable, has landed a shot at the WBA world super-bantamweight title.

Unbeaten Quigg will face the unbeaten Cuban Yoandris Salinas.

The world title shot represents a decent turnaround in fortune for Quigg, who prior to his last fight (and first for Eddie Hearn) had been inactive for some seven months.

The 24 year-old Quigg, defending a record of 26 wins and 1 draw, will be taking on an older fighter, with Salinas being 27 years of age but having had fewer fights, with the Cuban?s record standing at 20 wins and 1 draw.

No date, or venue, has yet been set for the fight but Quigg has had this to say about the forthcoming challenge,

?I was thrilled to get back into the ring in Bolton.?

?It has been a frustrating wait, but now I?ve got the ring rust off and we?ve got this world title shot, it has all been worth it.?


All we need to know now is when and where!
