Scott Quigg has revealed his intentions to unify the super-bantamweight division.

Quigg successfully defended his WBA world title with a second-round stoppage of Tshifhiwa Munyai in Manchester on Saturday. The 25-year-old is now keen to fight the other super-bantamweight world title holders.

"I want those big fights," Quigg told BBC Radio Manchester. "I want to unify the division with fights with [IBF champion] Kiko Martinez or [WBC champion] Leo Santa Cruz, the other champions.

"The other name that always crops up is Carl Frampton. They're the fights that I want. I feel I'm ready for them."

Frampton defeated Hugo Fidel Cazares earlier in April in a title eliminator, which is likely to earn him a bout with Santa Cruz.
