Scott Quigg?s desire to fight for a world title and hopefully regain the world champion status he once had, is moving a step nearer.

It is being reported that Quigg is set to challenge for the WBO world featherweight title against the holder Oscar Valdez.

The bout is said to be scheduled for the Stubhub Centre, in Los Angeles on 10 March.

However, if Quigg is to regain his world champion status he faces a hard task.

The champion, Valdez, has an unbeaten record recording 23 wins from 23 fights and stopping 18 of his opponents by knockout.

Talking about facing a fighter who Quigg describes as not having put a foot wrong, the 29-year-old from Bury remarked to BBC Manchester,

‘The Americans are building him as the next big star so I’m probably a slight underdog, that’s what people will be thinking.

‘I don’t see myself as an underdog. All I know is that I’ve got to put the work in and I’m very confident I can do the job.’

With three wins under his belt, against Jose Cayetano, Viorel Simion and Oleg Yefimovych, Quigg is on a winning run, but Valdez will be Quigg?s biggest test so far.

Here at Vital Boxing we wish him well.
