    Hello and welcome to our coverage of Fight Night - Live!

    Tonight, at the Manchester Phones 4 U Arena, Scott Quigg defends his WBA super-bantamweight title against South African Tshifhiwa Munyai. 

    There will also be the intriguing match-up between former sparring partners John Murray and Anthony Crolla, and Josh Warrington taking on challenger Rendall Munroe for the Commonwealth featherweight crown.

  • QUIGG V MUNYAI
    Bury boy Scott Quigg was set to defend his WBA title against Nehomar Cermeno tonight but, due to visa problems, the Venezuelan was unable to make it to Manchester and 28-year-old Tshifhiwa Munyai (24-2-1) has stepped in.

  • QUIGG V MUNYAI
    Munyai (5ft9in) is taller than Cermeno (5ft6in) and Quigg could be in for an awkward test against an opponent who, eight years ago, took the Commonwealth bantamweight belt from Martin Power at York Hall.

  • NELSON'S VIEW
    Here's what Sky Sports expert Johnny Nelson makes of the contest.

    I know it was a late change but I think this might just have got a whole lot harder for Quigg. 

    Munyai might not be that active but he is tall and rangey and he is awkward to say the least and that makes it difficult for Quigg. 

    The Munyai of old - around 2006 - would definitely have beaten him and although Quigg is growing in experience all the time, this really could be an upset.

  • QUIGG v MUNYAI

    Munyai required two visits to the scales before making weight on Friday. The challenger, who took the fight at just a week's notice, was only 5oz over the 8st 10lb limit at the first time of asking and after being given two hours to shed the extra weight, did just that.

  • There are not many world champions who would have taken this high-calibre opponent at a weeks notice but the preparation is done and where ready to rock and roll. I am expecting nothing but a spectacular win for Scott  Quigg.

  • SMITH V BASTIENT - ROUND ONE
    Smith starts brightly, looking confident against his 32-year-old opponent - who has offered little in the opening exchange.

  • SMITH V BASTIENT - ROUND TWO
    Smith unleashes a fierce volley and has Bastient in trouble on the ropes midway through the round but the Frenchman bravely sees off the onslaught. Jim Watt says this is only going one way - but Bastient is showing plenty of resolve.

    4/19/2014 6:53:29 PM
  • SMITH V BASTIENT - ROUND THREE
    IT'S ALL OVER! A powerful body shot sent Bastient sprawling through the ropes. He got up and made the count but his corner had seen enough and threw in the towel. That was an impressive left-hander from Smith!

  • The plan was to be patient. This guy has fought for the European title and lost it on points so I expected a few rounds but everything I threw landed so maybe I got carried away!
