Quigg to team up with Freddie Roach - Page 2 Empty Quigg to team up with Freddie Roach

First topic message reminder :

Scott Quigg has announced he is leaving Joe Gallaghers Manchester stable and will be moving to the Wild Card gym in LA to team up with Freddie Roach.

Interesting move for Quigg. A few years ago Roach could have been a good fit for him, although I wonder now how much Roach has let to give as he continues to battle Parkinsons. He has started to look quite frail in recent years I have thought. Basing himself in the U.S could open a few extra doors for Quigg as he chances a world title. Aside from the Frampton fight, he has found himself drifting at times over here and playing the part of an undercard filler. There are some good fights in the U.S if he can land them. Some potentially good ones domestically as well. Hopefully Roach can improve him as I think Quigg is quite a good fighter that might have stagnated under Gallagher somewhat (with some poor cornering on a coupe of occasions costing him).

Dear me, dollies out of the pram.

He did become a bigger name fighting on Matchroom cards, yes, but that wasn't the initial argument (which you've shifted slightly to save face). You argued that Hearn built his fanbase (rather than Josh/Steve).

Warrington had a huge following prior to being promoted to Hearn - one he and Steve Wood built themselves. You disputed that. I explained why it was correct.

He had a following that Hearn exploited and increased, that was my original argument, yours being that Hearn did nothing.

It must really suck being wrong all the time Haz and being unable to make people bend to your will, you'll get over it eventually maybe, albeit with your 'issues' I doubt it.

You claimed he had a "small following" prior to signing with Eddie and that Hearn "tapped into the Leeds football crowd." Josh and Steve Wood had already laid the groundwork in that regard. Warrington built his following himself.

Yes, his popularity increased after signing a promotional contract with Matchroom (as any fighter's would on a similar career trajectory) but he's still fighting in the same 10, 000 seater arena he was before he signed that contract (the one he packed out when he was being promoted by Steve Wood).

I'm not sure what "bending to your will" is all about. This is an online forum, not 50 Shades Darker.
