Boxing Odds: Quigg to face Ambunda and defend his WBA super bantamweight title
By Andrew Scott Wednesday, 6 August 2014 03:22
In September, Scott Quigg will take on Paulus Ambunda in an effort to defend his WBA super bantamweight title in Manchester, and local bookies can’t wait to see what the boxing odds will look like in this fight.
Boxing betting fans learned that the fighter’s third title defence gets underway on September 13 at the Phones 4u Arena, on a bill that also includes Manchester lightweight Anthony Crolla, who’s very well known with local bookies for his talent in the ring.
Both fighters who make very good boxing odds will face former world champions, as Quigg takes on Namibian Ambunda, who was able to move up a division after losing 12 months ago his WBO bantamweight belt.
Crolla will meet former WBC super featherweight champion Gamaliel Diaz, in a bid for a potential world title showdown, and local bookies wonder what the boxing odds will look like when this fight gets underway.
Promoter Eddie Hearn said: “We are excited to be back in Manchester in September for another big night.
“Scott and Anthony are becoming regular fixtures at the Arena with great support and both are in major fights on September 13.
“Scott is in scintillating form and ready to stamp his authority on the division, while Anthony has another tough fight against former world champion Diaz, who mixed with the likes of Robert Guerrero, Jorge Linares and Humberto Soto before travelling to Japan to win the WBC title.”
Local bookies know that trainer Joe Gallagher will be very busy, as in a British title final eliminator Scotty Cardle is set to face Kirk Goddings and try to clinch the English lightweight title, while in a British welterweight title eliminator, Manchester’s Denton Vassell will have a meeting with Sam Eggington where the boxing odds will be very closely followed.
Hearn said: “Scotty Cardle is in a crunch match with English champion Kirk Goodings with the winner becoming the mandatory challenger for British Champion Terry Flanagan, and Manchester’s Denton Vassell takes on Sam Eggington in what promises to be a barn burner.”
