BURY'S former world champion boxer Scott Quigg returns to the ring next month on the undercard of the much-anticipated rematch between Anthony Joshua and Andy Ruiz Jnr in Saudi Arabia.

The 31-year-old ex-WBA super-bantamweight champion will take on former IBF super-featherweight world title challenger, Ireland's Jono Carroll for the WBA Inter-Continental title at 126lb on December 7.

Quigg is still aiming to become a two-weight world champion but has not fought in 12 months after an elbow injury in sparring forced him to pull out of his scheduled showdown with Jayson Velez in April.

The Bury star said: "I am delighted to be on this huge card.

“It is a great platform for me to launch my career forward again and get my name back out there after being out the ring for over 12 months due to injury.

“Despite being out the ring for the length of time I have I expect to be putting in a career-best performance and moving back in to the title mix.

"I look forward to the Saudi Arabian experience and I am privileged to be part of such a special show.”
