On the under-card of the Monte Carlo promotion, Bury?s Scott Quigg was continuing in his quest to have another world title fight.

The former world title holder was matched against the tough Ukrainian fighter, Oleg Yefimovich, in what was deemed to be an eliminator for the WBA version of the world featherweight title.

During his professional career, Yefimovich had never been stopped, but, in a polished display, Quigg did just that.

Sometimes, throwing a little caution to the wind, Quigg stalked his opponent around the ring and catching him with some heavy shots.

As the rounds went on 29year-old Quigg wore his 36-year-old opponent down and the fight came to an end in the sixth round.

Talking about his charge, the promoter Eddie Hearn had this to say about getting Quigg a world title shot next year,

‘While there is a log jam domestically, let’s move round the back and go and become a world champion stateside’.

With Quigg now training in the US, that seems an ideal step to take.
