Jason Quigley made it a perfect 10 last time out, pushing his record to 10-0, but everything about his fight on the undercard of Canelo Alvarez and Amir Khan’s eagerly anticipated clash is ‘perfect’ claims the Irish middleweight prospect.
Not only has the Donegal puncher got a chance to show his significant wares on one of the biggest shows of the year, but he make an eye-catching step-up in class.
Indeed, Quigley, who fights for eleventh time as a pro at the newly-built T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on May 7th, might just be taking one of the biggest step-ups made by an Irish fighter in recent memory..
In an impressive match-up, Golden Boy’s Quigley [10(9)-0] will face Texas-based Mexian James De la Rosa [23(13)-3(1)] a fighter, who was penciled in a comeback foe for David Lemieux over 10 rounds, in Sin City.
It’s certainly a test but it’s a test that came at the perfect time and will play out on the perfect card claims Quigley.
What a card to be on,” Quigley told Sky Sports. “You’re going to have all the Mexican fans out for ‘Canelo’, all the British and a lot of Irish fans for Khan. It’s absolutely ideal and it’s a perfect platform and stage for me to shine.

“It’s a perfect opponent, perfect time, perfect place, perfect undercard. I just can’t wait. He’s bringing a great record to the table. Twenty-three wins, three losses. I know where I want to get and this guy is just another hurdle in the way.”
“I’ve been serving my apprenticeship for 10 fights, two years coming up in July. This is my first big test and my time to grab it with both hands and show the world what I’m made of. Make a statement of why I’m here and what I’m here to do.”
