Scott Quigg made a successful defence of his WBA super-bantamweight title with a second-round stoppage of South African Tshifiwa Munyai in Manchester.

The Bury 25-year-old floored Munyai with a big left hand in the opening round and referee Howard Foster brought an end to the contest in round two when Munyai hit the canvas again.

Victory moved Quigg, who extended his unbeaten professional record to 30 fights, closer to a showdown with unbeaten Belfast contender Carl Frampton.

Promoter Eddie Hearn said after the fight that Quigg was determined to clean up the division and go after Frampton's probable next opponent, WBC champion Leo Santa Cruz.

Afterwards, Quigg told Sky Sports: "I wanted to make a statement, I said I wanted to show the best of Scott Quigg and that's what I had to do and no-one's ever done that to Munyai.

"I've gone in there and demolished him. It was a calculated start - but we nailed it down beforehand and did what we had to."
