On the big promotion at the Manchester Arena this Saturday evening, Scott Quigg will be looking to make a decent impression.

Bury?s Quigg will be defending his WBA super-bantamweight title against Kiko Martinez.

The last time Martinez visited the United Kingdom he was soundly beaten by the IBF champion, Carl Frampton, in Belfast.

Quigg is only too aware that his performance, on Saturday night, will be compared with that of Frampton?s but Quigg, defending a professional record that has seen him will all thirty-two of his fights, looks to be thriving on the rivalry with the Belfast man, remarking,

‘It brings more pressure because there are going to be comparisons between how I beat him and how Frampton beat him, but I couldn’t be in a better place physically and mentally.

‘The rivalry is good for both of us. People are picking him over me, but I’ve got the chance to go and show everyone why I’m the best super-bantam in the world.’

To better Frampton?s performance in Belfast in 2013, Quigg will have to stop Martinez, he may well do that but can he do it quicker than Frampton?

That remains to be seen.
