Quigg looked old in the first round. It's funny how it just seems to desert you, those fast twitch reflexes overnight, gone and you just can't get yourself out of the way. Must be hard to accept. Felt a little sorry for him.

Big win for Carroll. Eliminator next maybe for him?

Jono boxed lovely, but Quigg was so poor right from bell 1, that it’s difficult to properly assess Jono...

In fairness to Gallagher he did warn him at the end of Rd9 and he did show a bit more in Rd10 off the back of that. He was never going to win the fight from there though so I understand the sentiment. I also think the Sky team went a little OTT regarding the corner.

Take nothing away from Carroll though, that was a pretty flawless display. He'd be some fighter with a little more power in the locker.

i hope he doesnt try too much to add power to his game. ....seen it before, speed goes when they concentrate on adding power in training...and his speed is one of his main assests.

Agree with this 100% He was rarely badly hurt and Sky were exaggerating. Quigg hit Jono with a couple of counters that they never even mentioned too (even if Jono took them well).

Quigg's corner were right to throw in the towel when they did though. His only chance of a win was by KO and it wasn't happening. Carroll has improved massively since I last watched him (the Farmer loss), especially his head movement. If he can add some bite to his power punches he'll be dangerous against anyone. Should take a trip to SugarHill...

The Sky commentary were a joke. They were calling for Quigg to be pulled out after a few bloody rds. Jono was boxing circles around Quigg, but they were very weak punches. Quigg looked fresh and clear headed all the way..

Even the end, Jono made a meal of trying land anything of substance before the towel..

No mention at all in Irish mainstream media. Wonder why?
