SCOTT Quigg called time on his career in boxing after he suffered a sobering defeat to Jono Carroll at Manchester Arena at the start of the month.

The former WBA World super bantamweight champion had an illustrious 13-year professional career where he teamed up with trainers Joe Gallagher and Freddie Roach.

The Bury star made the Manchester Arena a second home as he fought there eight times.

Here we take a look back at four of the most memorable fights in Quigg’s career. These include huge wins, but also close defeats which could have launched him to legendary status.

1 First on the list of memorable fights for Quigg is his stoppage win over Kiko Martinez at the Manchester Arena in 2015 to defend his world championship for the sixth time.

Quigg was 26 years old at the time of this fight and was in the state of mind that he could knock out all comers.

Martinez was a former world champion and the best Quigg had come up against at that time in his career.

The Spaniard settled into the fight well as Quigg struggled in the first, but the Bury man landed a powerful uppercut in the second to floor Martinez before the referee intervened following a barrage of punches.

2 The Martinez victory set up the fight that everyone wanted to see – the unification fight between Belfast’s Frampton and Quigg.

In front of a packed-out Manchester Arena, Frampton added Quigg’s WBA belt to the IBF title he already had in his possession.

The fight was a slow burner as Frampton controlled the first half of the bout, but Quigg found his range late on.

One judge gave Quigg the nod, but the other two favoured Frampton as Quigg lost for the first time in his career.

It was the first time two undefeated British fighters had fought to unify a world title.

3 Obviously, a huge moment in Quigg’s boxing life was when he defeated Randell Monroe on the undercard of Ricky Hatton’s return fight against Vyacheslav Senchenko – the first time Quigg fought at Manchester Arena.

The two had previously come to blows, but a cut to Monroe after an accidental clash of heads meant the fight ended in a technical draw.

Quigg made sure nothing was stopping him in the rematch as he halted Monroe in the sixth round, after downing him twice with some ferocious body shots.

4 Another real fight of note for Quigg was his second-round knockout of Diego Oscar Silva on the undercard of the first fight between Carl Froch and George Groves in Manchester.

Quigg’s performance got people talking as it was his second fight in the space of a month after he went through a gruelling 12-round battle with Yeondris Salinas in London.

The Bury man didn’t look fatigued at all and took the fight to Silva as he dropped him twice in the second round with a brutal uppercut, before the referee stepped in and stopped it.

Quigg’s dream of becoming a two-weight world champion wasn’t to be as he was beaten convincingly by Carroll, but he is someone who will be remembered for getting every ounce out of the sport of boxing.
