It was an impressive display yet again for the Donegal man.


LA proving a good hunting ground for Quigley

Last weekend on the undercard of former interim light welterweight champ Mauricio Herrera (22-5, 7KO) and Hank Lundy (25-5, 12KO) for the vacant NABF light welterweight title at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles, California, Jason quigley extended his 100% perfect professional record to (7-0, 7KO) in a fight many believed would be a step up in class.

The young man from Donegal was fighting an opponent with 8 wins from 11 fights, a foe who prior to this bout had never been stopped before in the paid ranks of professional boxing, but Jason Quigley made this step up look relatively straight forward.

What was evident after watching the fight in Los Angeles on Saturday, was that the young Irishman is fast displaying that he has no problem whatsoever in adjusting to the escalation in ability of opponents placed in front of him.

Jason Quigley’s reaction to last weekend’s performance

I caught up with Jason after the fight to get his reaction on how he rated his opponent, and what his next plans are:

“The fight went according to plan. The game plan worked perfect, worked the body early, took his hands down and dropped him with lovely backhand.

I’m just going enjoy the victory and moment right now, then sit down with my team at Golden Boy, Sheer Sports and my coach.”

Too good – on wards and upwards

In fairness, Tom “Hitman” Howard (8-4) was treated exactly the same as most of Jason’s opponents have been so far, Quigley is definitely an equal opportunity fighter shall we day, who doesn’t discriminate in his performance in terms of dishing out punishment, regardless of level of opposition!

Like Quigley’s previous 6 opponents, the tough Mississippi-based fighter was sent to the canvas twice in the fight, before a flurry of accurate and spiteful punches signaled the timely intervention of the 3rd man in the ring to call time in the 2nd round, for yet another stoppage win for Quigley.

Quigley’s opponent on the night at no point in the fight could match the young Donegal man’s abilities and power, and the writing was on the wall pretty much from the start.

In only his 7th professional bout Jason Quigley displayed complete control of his craft with excellent footwork, accuracy and intelligent punch selection.

He also showed power in both hands, with the potential for concussion written all over them throughout the contest.

It’s early days yet of course, and a long road is ahead for this talented young fighter, but sometimes when watching a talent coming through the ranks, you just get a good feeling about them.

Sometimes – you just know.
