SCOTT QUIGG apologised to WBO champion Oscar Valdez for missing weight after coming in 2.8lbs over the featherweight limit at Friday’s weigh-in.

Quigg was hoping to upset the 23-0 rising star and clinch the title at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

But he is now unable to win the belt after weighing in at 128.8lbs after failing to strip off the last few pounds overnight Thursday.
