Ahead of his fight against Diego Silva, and on the back of the majority draw decision he got against Yoandris Salinas, Scott Quigg had implied he wanted to make a statement.

Well on the under-card of the Froch v Groves fight, a bout that ended very controversially, the lad from Bury did just that.

Quigg totally dominated his opponent, staying clear of any big punches, to knock out the Argentine fighter inside two rounds.

Scott had started well, landing some decent right hand punches, before finishing off his opponent in the second round with two magnificent uppercuts.

Silva was not in the same class as Quiggs? previous opponent but the result confirms Quigg?s place as the WBA super-bantamweight champion and provides a marvellous platform from which to launch a unification fight or, somewhere down the line, tempt Carl Frampton into an all-British showdown.
