Press Conference Quotes

Eddie Hearn: "I remember the great build-up to the fight between Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton at Manchester Arena. We're going to get exactly the same thing in this build-up between two great fighters in very similar positions. Both guys who have been a World Champion in Scott Quigg, a World Title challenger in Jono Carroll - a great fight against Tevin Farmer in Philadelphia. Of course Scott Quigg, former Super-Bantamweight World Champion attempted to unify that in one of the biggest fights that Manchester has seen in the Carl Frampton fight. This is an absolute must-win fight for both guys."

Scott Quigg: “It’s good to be back in Manchester in an exciting fight. I have been out the ring a long time and it has been frustrating but now I am back with Joe [Gallagher] and really looking forward to March 7. 

"This is a fight that really excites me, he is going to come and try and have a go but he will get demolished. I want to get in the ring and if he wants to have it then great but I think he will be on his bike! We will see if he backs up everything he is saying. I will take Jono Carroll out, get my arm raised and move on. It’s a simple as that."

Jono Carroll: “After Saudi got cancelled, I genuinely thought that Scott bottled it, I had no issues with him but I just remember thinking he better not have bottled that. 

"This is a career shift, I have always wanted to top bills and I remember being at Manchester Arena when Scott fought Kiko Martinez, thinking I cannot wait until that is me and now I’m here. I am delighted to be here and if you know me personally you will know this is just business. I will be working my ass off in Spain to go and smash Scott Quigg up.

"My loss to Farmer woke me up and I want to be the best I can possibly be. I know that I am that world level now. I go to war, I think it is the Irish blood in me.

"One thing I just have to question is why does he feel he has to change trainer? To me that's weakness in the mind, that's weakness in the head. You change trainer before such a big fight? That might be a bad mistake mate."

 

Background

This pair were due to fight on the Anthony Joshua vs Any Ruiz Jr undercard on December 7, but Quigg withdrew citing an arm injury.

Scott's only defeats have come at the hands of world champions - firstly to Carl Frampton in their super-bantamweight unification match in February 2016, then to Oscar Valdez when challenging for the Mexican's WBO featherweight title in California in 2018.

He has won the British belt, WBA Inter-Continental, WBA World interim and WBA World titles at super-bantamweight. He defended his world title four times before Frampton took it from him with a split decision win after suffering a broken jaw in round four. He then moved up to featherweight to claim the WBA International strap in his next fight in 2017; he then collected the WBA Continental bauble, which made him the no.1 contender in the division, but then came his second defeat as he weighed in heavy against Valdez, so has since moved up further in weight to 130lbs and scored a second round stoppage in October last year to announce his arrival.

The 'Celtic Warrior' Jono Carroll surprised everybody when he entered the Prizefighter tournament as a 3-0 unknown fighter way back in 2014, defeating three opponents with a combined record of 73-11-2 to win the competition. He then reached 13-0 and defeated unbeaten prospect John Quigley (14-0) for the IBF European super-featherweight title, which he defended successfully twice to earn his shot at the IBF World super-featherweight champion Tevin Farmer in Philadelphia last March. It remains his only loss, he came back to the ring on a Sauerland-Matchroom co-promotion in Mexico in August to get a 10-round points win under his belt.

Both boxers enter the ring with a win behind them and each having challenged for a world title in the fight before.

 

Key Stats

Former WBA World super-bantamweight champion Scott Quigg (35-2-2, 26KOs) has stopped two-thirds of his opponents with a 66% KO ratio. The Bury boxer has 200 professional rounds under his belt having debuted way back in 2007 and this next fight will be his 40th contest in the paid ranks.

Quigg is the naturally bigger man at 5ft 8", one-inch taller than Carroll (17-1-1, 3KOs), and also possesses an advantage in reach at 173cm to Jono's 170cm.

The Dubliner enters the contest four years Quigg's junior at the age of 27. He is the no.1 super-feather in his native country and has very fewer miles on the clock with just over seven years as a pro and only 122 rounds within that time.

 

Predictions

"This will be a classic fight of the counter-punching southpaw and the come forward body punching fighter. For me, Quigg still has something left in the tank, my prediction is a late stoppage win for Quigg as he breaks Carroll down with body and head shots," says Peter Sims.
