Jason Quigley Looking To Bring Belt To Ireland

Jason Quigley believes he is the man to hand a first career defeat to Demetrius Andrade when he challenges for the WBO World Middleweight title on Friday, November 19 at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire, live worldwide on DAZN.

Quigley (19-1 14 KOs) heads to England at the weekend to continue his camp with former World ruler and trainer Andy Lee before leaving for the East Coast as the clock ticks down to his first World title fight.

The Irishman will be the fifth man to try to take the belt from Andrade (30-0 18 KOs) and the second from the Emerald Isle after Luke Keeler’s attempt in January 2020. Quigley believes the timing is just right for him to take the belt once owned by his trainer back home to Ireland, and says his fans will turn out in force in the States to roar him to victory.

Check out the latest Big Fight Weekend Podcast as we spoke to Jamel Herring and his upcoming contest in ATlanta Saturday night. Aas well, we had guest Gayle Lynn Falkenthal of Communities Digital News and NY Fights about last weeks action as she was at the tremendous contest between Emanuel Navarrete and Joet Gonzalez.

“He needs fights, and the big guns are avoiding him,” said  Jason Quigley. “I’ll happily step in and bring that title back to Ireland.  “I’m at the perfect stage in my life and my career to deal with this situation. I’m not the young kid now living for the whole excitement of fighting for a world title  “This is just another fight and I training my absolute ass off in the gym to get that W. To win will mean so much in this fight than in any other fight.

“I know that I can bring stuff to the table that is going to upset him, make him see things that he’s not always seen inside the ring. “I honestly believe the Irish fans will outweigh his fans come fight night 100 percent.”

Quigley’s clash with Andrade is one of four world title fights on a massive night in New Hampshire.
