The representatives of Englishman Scott Quigg (26-0-1, 19 KOs), interim junior featherweight titlist, and Miami-based Cuban Yoandris Salinas (20-0-1, 13 KOs) have come to terms for their bout, so the purse bid scheduled for Monday has been cancelled.

They will fight for a vacant full belt, although the specific terms of the deal were not disclosed. The date and location of the bout have not yet been announced, but Matchroom Sport, Quigg's promoter, announced that under the deal it made with Salinas' representative Golden Boy, the fight will take place in Britain later this year.

"It's great news that this fight has been made and will be in England," Quigg said. "I'll be working hard over the summer to get ready for the clash. Salinas is a classy operator, but I will be 100 percent ready to take that title."

Said Matchroom Sport promoter Eddie Hearn, who recently signed Quigg: "I'm over the moon that we have been able to get this done. Scott is ready to go win this world title."
