Quigley and Ochieng set for tasty title showdown

Erick Ochieng and Nick Quigley will fight for the vacant English light-middleweight title at York Hall, Bethnal Green on Saturday 28 January, live on Sky Sports.
Ochieng and Quigley will provide the chief support for Carl Frampton s Commonwealth super-bantamweight title defence against Kris Hughes, and their clash promises to be the perfect appetiser to the Ulsterman s big night.
It s a first title fight for the pair although 23 year-old Quigley has gone tantalisingly close to major honours when he reached the Prizefighter Light Middleweights final at the east London boxing Mecca in September losing to Robert Lloyd-Taylor (pictured) but gaining a new following with his tremendous displays against fellow Scouser Ste Harkin and Brentwood s Kris Agyei-Dua.
Quigley bounced back in December with a shut-out win over Dee Mitchell in Wigan taking him to 10-1.
Stoke Newington man Ochieng coming into the fight on the back of three wins in 2011, and the hotly-tipped 24 year-old is itching to claim the strap after recovering from the sole defeat of his career in March with a win over Liam Cameron in May and also comes into the fight with a points win over Mitchell, York Hall the venue as Ochieng moved to 8-1.
Also on the bill are Islington s unbeaten Middleweight prospect John Ryder, Upminster Lightweight Ryan Crash Bang Taylor, Canning Town s Heavyweight debutant Wadi Camacho and a real tear-up in store between former world champion Robin Reid and Waltham Abbey s Daniel Cadman.
January 28 promises to be a classic York Hall night, said promoter Eddie Hearn. We ve got a great main event with new sensation Carl Frampton out to impress in his defence against Kris Hughes, Ochieng versus Quigley should be a classic a John Ryder is out to show everybody he s the real deal the perfect way to start a big year ahead, with a sold-out Prizefighter on February 11 in Wolverhampton to come.
