Scott Quigg on verge of sealing world title bid against Oscar Valdez

Scott Quigg on verge of sealing world title bid against Oscar Valdez”

Eddie Hearn - whose company, Matchroom Boxing, promotes Quigg - confirmed in a Tweet posted Tuesday night that the Valdez-Quigg deal is near completion.

A DEAL IS close to being completed for Scott Quigg to fight Oscar Valdez for the latter's WBO World featherweight title in California on 10 March.

ESPN has reported that the contest has been agreed upon but is yet to be signed according to various sources, with Eddie Hearn since confirming believing "We are close to finalising a deal" in regards to the contest being struck upon.

Valdez was recently touted as a potential opponent for another Irish fighter in Belfast's Carl Frampton, and the victor of a prospective Valdez-Quigg clash in March would be a prime candidate to throw down with "The Jackal" this winter or early next year should all go to plan for Quigg's only conqueror in the first half of 2018.

Quigg has won three fights in a row since his only defeat, a split decision to Northern Ireland's Carl Frampton in a heavily hyped junior featherweight unification bout in February 2016.

StubHub Center in Carson is set to be the venue for the fight, which will take place outdoors.

Hearn is hopeful that he will finalise terms with Valdez's team and is backing Quigg to capture a world title in a second weight division after he previously held a WBA super-bantamweight belt.

Quigg will have to compete in enemy territory in LA against the Mexican, who has fought across America in his 23-0 career. The unknown yet tough Servania dropped Valdez in the fourth round and withstood a fifth-round knockdown, but lost on all three scorecards (117-109, 116-110, 115-111). Quigg, 29, though from England, wouldn't have to travel far from his training camp at Freddie Roach's Wild Card Gym in Los Angeles.
