Pay per head sportsbooks learned that Scott Quigg will now take on Tshifhiwa Munyai and defend his WBA Super-Bantamweight on April 19 after Nehomar Cermeno, his original opponent, was forced to pull out of the fight.
Quigg was set to take on Venezuelan Cermeno in Manchester at the Phones 4u Arena, but many fans and price per head services were disappointed when they found out that the initial plan was scuppered due to visa issues.
The Bury-born 25-year-old, who is very famous with pay per head sportsbooks all over the world, will now take on Munyai, a fighter who fought in England before, beating Martin Power and winning the Commonwealth Bantamweight crown in June 2006.
And pay per head sportsbooks remember that later that same year, the South African fighter was successfully able to defend the strap against Lee Haskins before January 2007, when he beat Power again in a rematch for the title.
Promoter Eddie Hearn and pay per head sportsbooks believe that Munyai – who in his 27-fight professional career only lost twice, and is nicknamed ‘The Atomic Spider’ – will pose a serious threat to the undefeated Quigg.
“It’s a great fight for Scott and in my opinion a much tougher test than Cermeno,” said Hearn.
“Munyai is no stranger to these shores and is impressive form coming into the fight. Scott is in fantastic shape and ready to make a big statement as we eye unification fights this summer.”
Pay per head sportsbooks found out that Quigg v Munyai will top a bill that also includes a Manchester derby between John Murray and Anthony Crolla for the latter’s WBO Inter-Continental Lightweight title.
