LEGENDARY trainer Freddie Roach, who has taken on former world champion Scott Quigg, expects his new charge to dazzle on Saturday’s Joshua-Klitschko undercard and seize Lee Selby’s IBF featherweight title later this year.

“He’s doing quite well. He works really, really hard. He’s real dedicated, he listens and he’s made a good game plan with this fight and he’ll go through to bigger and better things,” Roach said of his new pupil. “Like Manny Pacquiao’s he’s got a good work ethic.

“I find when fighters work like that, good things happen.”
