Bury boxer Scott Quigg will aim to defend his WBA World Super Bantamweight title for the second time against Venezuelan Nehomar Cermeno at the Phones 4u Arena.
Quigg will be joined on April 19 by former IBF Bantamweight champion Jamie McDonnell and Manchester Lightweight Anthony Crolla, whose opponent will be announced next week.
Olympic gold medalists Anthony Joshua MBE and Luke Campbell MBE are also on the bill, which Matchroom Sports promoter Eddie Hearn is delighted with.
“I’m delighted to be back in Manchester for this monster show,” said Hearn. “Scott Quigg is in the toughest fight of his career against Cermeno.
“Anthony Crolla will be in a big domestic battle; Jamie McDonnell is on the march to a second World title and Olympic gold medallists Anthony Joshua and Luke Campbell continue their journeys to the top.”
Mandatory challenger Cermeno will be aiming to make it third time lucky in the bout with Quigg after losing out on the WBA Bantamweight title twice to Panama fighter Anselmo Moreno in 2010.
The card will also be broadcast in the United States of America on AWE TV and their president Charles Herring is excited about the action as Hearn.
“This card is a ‘must watch’ action-packed afternoon of live world class boxing for US fight fans,” said Herring.
