Jason Quigley eyes successful end to 2015, says future fight in Ireland will 100% happen

Phil Jay 18/11/2015

California-based Irishman Jason Quigley makes his sixth appearance of 2015 aiming to finish off a highly impressive year at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas on Friday night.

The 24 year-old, who was born in Donegal, has stopped all eight of his career opponents to date within three rounds, five of which have come since March as the strapping six-footer builds up a reputation as a knockout artist.

Intent on continuing his early progress, Quigley’s upcoming foe is yet to be announced, although the prospect is promising another crowd-pleasing performance whoever may be in the opposite corner come fight time.

“I aim to round off a great year for me with another great performance and if I see a knockout opportunity I’ll take it,” Quigley told World Boxing News.

“I think every fight someone expects a KO as I don’t think fans go to watch a decision. I think my fans expect a KO since that has been my winning way for the past eight fights. If I can I’ll give it to them I will. I just want to stay busy and keep climbing the ladder.”

On when he expects to be fighting for titles and if a fight in his home country of Ireland is possible in future, Quigley added: “I’d say in about another two years. By then I hope to be fighting for a title.

“And 100% I will fight in Ireland. I want to come and put on a boxing event and not just a fight. I want to make it a big deal for the fans who have supported me all the way from the beginning to now and I’ll make sure that happens,” he promised.

Ex-amateur star Quigley’s next outing is part of Golden Boy’s weekend warm-up prior to the massive middleweight bout between Miguel Cotto and Canelo Alvarez which features super bantamweight Diego De La Hoya in a headlining contest.
