It?s what is generally known as the quiet period in Boxing.

The festive season sees very little action as the sport goes into something akin to a slumber.

However, some news has broken that suggests that Scott Quigg could soon be getting the chance t become a world champion again.

The Bury fighter held the WBA super-bantamweight world-title before Carl Frampton defeated him.

However, it seems that 29-year-old Quigg is set to fight for the WBO world featherweight title.

Quigg is set to take on the current holder of the belt, Oscar Valdez.

Valdez, appears to be a formidable opponent with the Mexican having recorded 23 wins in his 23 fights. In those 23 wins Valdez has recorded 19 knockouts and he has made 2 successful defences of the title he won back in November 2016.

Talking about the fight, Quigg?s promoter Eddie Hearn is quoted as having remarked,

‘Hopefully we get it over the line – an unbelievable fight.

‘We are close to finalising a deal.’

Bring it on!
