Former world super-bantamweight champion calls a halt to his 40-fight career
Scott Quigg has confirmed his retirement after his stoppage loss to Jono Carroll at the weekend.
The 31-year-old former world champion called an end to his 40-fight career after trainer Joe Gallagher threw in the towel to halt his clash with Carroll in the 11th round at Manchester Arena.
In a statement on Instagram, he wrote: “Unfortunately last night wasn’t my night and it showed me it was time to call it a day!
“It’s been a great journey and I couldn’t of given the sport any more and it’s been a pleasure working alongside Eddie Hearn.
“I’ve achieved everything my desire dedication and ability would take me to and I can walk away with my head held high! Thank you to everyone for the tremendous support over the years.”
Joe Gallagher said: “It’s been some journey with Scott, from leaving school early, to being crowned World Champion, he’s believed in himself and dedicated his life to fulfilling his dream. It’s been a pleasure Crown Scott invested & believed in himself to fulfill his dream. Been a real pleasure – enjoy retirement Scott!”
Quigg had previously held the WBA super-bantamweight title, making a string of defences before a points loss to Carl Frampton in their unification clash in February 2016.
