MANCHESTER, England -- Scott Quigg retained his WBA super-bantamweight title with a second-round knockout of Diego Silva of Argentina on Saturday.

The Briton had Silva on the canvas early in the second round after two uppercuts.

Silva, who hadn't been beaten since 2009, got to his feet but the fight was over moments later when his was felled again by a swinging right from the undefeated Quigg, who was defending his belt for the second time.
