Scott Quigg will defend his WBA super-bantamweight title when he takes on Argentina’s Diego Silva on November 23 in Manchester, and pay per head sportsbooks are anticipating a very intense clash.
At the Phones4U Arena, the Bury-based fighter will make his first full title defence after he was upgraded from interim champion before his draw in London with Yoandris Salinas – a verdict which did not please the fighters and price per head services.
Pay per head sportsbooks know that Silva only lost once in six years to two-weight world champion Fernando Montiel, but the bout – which will be the main support of the clash between George Groves and Carl Froch – will be his first one taking place outside of South America.
Quigg told Sky Sports News: “Preparations are going well. Straight after the last fight we had a couple of days off and then straight back in the gym. We have been studying Diego now for a couple of weeks and training is going very well.
“He is a big threat. He is a totally different style to Yoandris Salinas. He is very unorthodox which means you can’t read him he doesn’t know what he is going to do next.
And pay per head sportsbooks can also see how big of a threat his opponent is.
“He is one of them where you have got to make sure you prepare right and fully focus and you can’t afford any slip ups.
“You always want to prove a point and better your performance from last time out. I do believe I won the fight last time out – it was a majority draw – I did feel that I did enough. I do want to go out and make a point and get the win as a world champion.
“It’s good to be back in Manchester which is virtually 10 minutes from my hometown Bury and it’s going to be a great night and hopefully I’ll get the win. To be part of a massive card – Groves v Froch – what a bill to be on.

“I thrive on pressure and the bigger the occasion the better I seem to do. I have always dreamed of coming out in front of 18-19,000 people. I remember watching Ricky Hatton v Kostya Tszyu at the MEN and wondering what it must be like to come out in front of that many people. I’m going to have the chance to do that and I am going to put on a brilliant display.”
