Scott Quigg insists he will be leaving the ring on Saturday night with his WBA super-bantamweight belt as he tries to make a statement by beating Stephane Jamoye.

Jamoye will provide a stern test for the Bury fighter, after facing Jamie McDonnell and Lee Haskins earlier in his career.

While he lost by majority decision to McDonnell, he picked up a TKO victory against Haskins and Quigg admits he will be a dangerous opponent.

Quigg will put his belt on the line once again in Manchester and he could face IBF champion Carl Frampton in his next fight.

Frampton picked up the belt after a gutsy win over Kiko Martinez last week but Quigg insisted his mind was fully focused on his fight on Saturday.

Both fighters comfortably made the weight on Friday, and Quigg was clearly fired up as he was separated from Jamoye by promoter Eddie Hearn.

Quigg insists the big fights can come in the future and he is confident of the outcome of Saturday’s bout.

He told Sky Sports News HQ: “He’s got the chance of a lifetime, a world title shot. I know how hungry I was when I was coming up, wanting to become world champion.

“But let me tell you, he isn’t taking nothing away from me tomorrow. That belt isn’t going nowhere, it’s staying with me and I’m going to prove that by doing a job on Jamoye.

“Tomorrow take care of business and those big names are there.”
