Quigg: The Fear of Losing Driving Me To New Heights

They say the hope of triumph is a more powerful tool for success than the fear of losing, but Scott Quigg claims the dread of coming out second best in his clash with Carl Frampton is driving him to go above and beyond in preparation for the mega February 27 clash.

Quigg is a renowned hard worker, a gym rat, who lives the life, but he has by all accounts has nigh on doubled his efforts ahead as he prepares to challenge for ‘The Jackal’s’ IBF super bantamweight World title.

The Bury fighter told Sky Sports his dedication is borne out of a fear of failure.

“The fear of losing, I have said it all along. Nobody wants to get up at this time and get out of bed, the body is not built for that,” Quigg explained.

“But for some reason, I can spring out of bed because the fear of failure and fear of losing is what drives me on and that is why I do what I do and I love what I do.”

He added: “To become unified champion is what I want to be. I have come into boxing to be world champion and because I’ve achieved that, I don’t stop there.

“I set new goals and that is what keeps the drive, the dedication and the focus there every day I wake up. It is about moving forward and getting better.”
