Scott Quigg, the 23-year-old unbeaten British super-bantamweight champion, has been chosen as Britain’s Best Young Boxer of the Year by the British Boxing Writers Club. He pipped 24-year-old heavyweight hope Tyson Fury - runner-up for the second successive year - by one vote in one of the closest polls in the 61-year history of the Club.  

Bury fighter Quigg, promoted by Ricky Hatton, has won 24 of his 25 paid fights, with one draw.  

He became British champion by stopping veteran Jason Booth in seven rounds in October last year and climbed off the floor to stop Jamie Arthur in the eighth round of his first title defence four months later.  

Quigg’s challenge for the WBA interim super-bantamweight title in June ended in a technical draw after opponent Rendall Munroe was badly cut over the right eye in an accidental clash of heads.  

Quigg will receive the Geoffrey Simpson award at the Boxing Writers annual dinner at London’s Savoy Hotel on Monday, October 15 - six days after his 24th birthday.  

He is aiming to follow in the footsteps a list of great boxing names, including Hamed, Ricky Hatton, Joe Calzaghe, Nigel Benn, Frank Bruno, Barry McGuigan, John Conteh, John H Stracey, Ken Buchanan, Howard Winstone and Terry Downes, who all went on to become world champions after being voted Best Young Boxer.
