Former world champion Scott Quigg (33-1-2, 24 KOs), under the tutelage of Freddie Roach, won a twelve round unanimous decision over Viorel Simion (21-2, 9 KOs) of their featherweight title at the undercard of Joshua vs Kiltschko, Saturday night at the Wembley Stadium in London.
The official scores were 117-111, 117-111. 115-113.
It was a high octane action from start to end as both men engage right away in a phone booth battle. Quigg got the better of it as he landed more telling blows. Both men cut and bruised during the course of 12-round back and forth action.
It was Quigg’s hands raised when the smoke clears up during his hard fought battle.
With the victory, Quigg is now in line for a potential title fight with Lee Selby.
