Scott Quigg wins a decision over Viorel Simion

Former world champion Scott Quigg (33-1-2, 24 KOs), under the tutelage of Freddie Roach, won a twelve round unanimous decision over Viorel Simion (21-2, 9 KOs) of their featherweight title at the undercard of Joshua vs Klitschko, Saturday night at the Wembley Stadium in London.

The official scores were 117-111, 117-111. 115-113.

It was a high-octane action from start to end as both men engage right away in a phone booth battle. Quigg got the better of it as he landed more telling blows. Both men cut and bruised during the course of 12-round back and forth action.

It was Quigg's hands raised when the smoke clears up during his hard-fought battle.

With the victory, Quigg is now in line for a potential title fight with Lee Selby.
