The heavily bearded Carroll was too fast and strong for the smaller Quigg, who made five defenses of the WBA 122lb crown. The one-sided beatdown ended when Quigg’s corner threw in the title with their man taking shots in round eleven. Time was 2:14. Quigg entered as a -175 favorite.

  • The Irishman boxed brilliantly and called his stoppage win despite being a very light hitter. But he was so dominant over Quigg, that he was able to start sitting down on his punches later in the fight. Joe Gallagher gave Quigg every opportunity to show him something or he was going to stop the fight. Quigg did not answer back.
