Unbeaten British champion Quigg doesn’t have the experience of Leicester’s former European champion, but believes lonely training trips to Los Angeles will pay off.
Bury’s Quigg, 23, said: “I know what I am capable of from when I went to America and sparred with Guillermo Rigondeaux and Jose Benavidez.
“They are better fighters than Rendall and I have held my own with them in the gym.

“Now I have - it is time to put up or shut up. I need to step up.”
