SCOTT Quigg says Saturday's win at Wembley Stadium has given him the taste for more big fights this year.

The Bury star claimed a unanimous points victory over Romanian Viorel Simion as the main support for Anthony Joshua's memorable win against Wladimir Klitschko.

And after a comfortable 117-111, 117-111, 115-113 triumph in an IBF world title eliminator, the 28-year-old is eyeing a showdown with world featherweight champion Lee Selby late this year.

Speaking exclusively to Bury Times this week, Quigg said: "The Selby fight is one I want and hopefully that can happen later this year.

"But I am happy to get in the ring again before then and continue my development under [new trainer] Freddie Roach.

"I am lucky that there are so many exciting fights out there at featherweight with Leo Santa Cruz and Oscar Valdez in there – I want the big fights because on such a big bill on Saturday has given me a taste for more.

"To be involved in such a huge event like that was a massive experience for me and I want to keep fighting on platforms like that."

Quigg admits there are aspects of his style under Freddie Roach to work on but after just eight weeks together since his switch from Bolton-based trainer Joe Gallagher, he was happy with how the first fight went against an opponent who only had one loss prior to the weekend and that was against Selby in 2013 on points.

He went on: "To be honest I felt on control all the way.

"In the first four rounds I came out quickly and probably tried a bit too hard and there were a few daft shots from me.

"The plan was to get in there and not let Simion get into a rhythm – to bully the bully first if you like.

"He caught me with a couple those first few rounds and there were a few mistakes from me but after that I felt comfortable and while he kept throwing shots, they were not landing.

"Once I loosened up, I felt good in there and enjoyed it.

"Freddie was talking to me a lot between rounds and there were good things to take out of the fight and others to work on but it has only been eight weeks or so and we got the win which was the important thing."

Quigg is now back home in Bury recuperating and resting, having a swollen hand checked out for any damage after the testing 12 rounds in London.

But he admits he will be talking to Roach before the end of the month to decide when to return stateside and resume training as soon as he can.

He said: "I am having a week off now to let my body recover. It took a lot out of me mentally as well.

"But I want to be out again in summer if possible and then face Selby at the end of the year.

"I am happy to have another fight beforehand but just want to get back training so I can keep improving under Freddie."
