Quigg wants to come back against Rigondeuax

Scott Quigg’s jaw is all but healed and he is eyeing a September return to the ring.

The fighter Carl Frampton issued a first defeat to in February isn’t keen on a warm up clash and wants to return in a World title fight.

Indeed, Quigg is open to fighting for the title he lost to Frampton on February 27 in the Autumn.

Having being unified the IBF and WBA super bantamweight title’s ‘The Jackal’ was stripped by the WBA last week, as it became apparent he wasn’t going to defend against Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux.

Quigg claims he is willing to step in and fight the brilliant Cuban.

“I’ve got another two months before I can’t start sparring again. As soon as I can fight again, and I’m looking at September or October, then I want to be back where I belong with the biggest fight possible,” he told Sky Sports.

“Hopefully we can go straight back in for a world title. Forget the injury or the jaw. I want to be back where I feel like I belong – at the top. I want to be in with the biggest opponent I can be in with because I want to prove that I’m the best.

“Obviously Frampton has both belts. I don’t think he’ll fight Rigondeaux and the WBA belt will become vacant then. I’d be happy to take that straight away.”
