Sassou has Scott Quigg sussed
DANIEL KODJO SASSOU believes he will shatter Scott Quigg’s world title hopes next week.
The Frenchman will challenge for unbeaten Quigg’s WBA international super-bantamweight crown on Hatton Promotions triple title bonanza at Bolton’s Reebok Stadium on Friday November 26.
Defeat is unthinkable for the Bury star who is one of British boxing’s hottest young talents
Sassou, 30, has won his last eight fights, but has been avoided by the 122lb division’s best since defeating Arsen Martirosyan in July 2009
Togo born Sassou warned: “I don’t know much about Quigg although I have seen a few of his fights on the internet.
“From what I have seen I will be leading from the very first round, until the last and winning clearly, even though it is difficult abroad.
“It has been frustrating not to be getting fights, but this contest is the perfect chance to show what I am about and win a title.
“Thank God, I have a job away from boxing because it is impossible to live off boxing unless you are a major champion, especially when you are not attached to a major promoter.
“There haven’t been any opportunities for me, but Hatton Promotions have offered one and I will take it even though it means beating their big hope.”
Heading the impressive Bolton card which will be televised by Sky Sports is Matthew Hatton’s second European welterweight championship defence, against undefeated Swiss fighter Roberto Belge.
