Scott Quigg has confirmed he will fight for the first time since his defeat to Carl Frampton on the undercard of Anthony Joshua’s World title defence in ManchesterĀ on November 26th.

The Matchroom fighter revealed he will make the move up to featherweight, a division his old rival Frampton has since made a huge impact in.

Considering ‘The Jackal’ has become a Worldwide name by virtue of his victory over Leo Santa Cruz, and is now the WBA champ at the new weight, Quigg – who he defeated in a relatively tame fight in February – doesn’t look likely to be on his radar despite the fact he has followed him to 126 lbs.

However, the Joe Gallagher-trained fighter admits he is rematch-obsessed and is determined to get revenge.

“Obviously the rematch is what we want. He is the only person to beat me and I one-hundred per-cent believe I will beat him next time,” Quigg told Boxingscene.

“Like I said we got the tactics slightly wrong, got the jaw broke. If I’d have started as I finished the fight I think I would have won comfortably, but the thing is to get back in the ring, get a good win under my belt, get people talking, wanting to see the fight again.

“So that’s the main goal – I want that fight again.”
