The undefeated super-bantamweight was the major winner at the Boxing Writers Club's annual award night, that also included Olympic gold medal winners and, for the first time in its 60-year history, women.
To mark both occasions, Nicola Adams was the winner of the Jim Bromley Special Award, while Luke Campbell and Anthony Joshua were both named Best Amateur Boxers of the Year.
Quigg, 24, was handed the award at the end of the night, just beating the likes of Tyson Fury, Billy Joe Saunders and Kid Galahad in the voting.
The British Super-Bantamweight champion replaces last year's winner George Groves and follows recent winners Kell Brook and Nathan Cleverly.
Quigg (24-0-1) has beaten Jason Booth and Jamie Arthur before drawing with Rendall Munroe in the last 12 months.
A cut to Munroe stopped their WBA Interim world title battle but Quigg is already in training for the rematch in Manchester on November 22.
