WATCH: Jason Quigley KO1 Jorge Melendez

Jason Quigley [12(10)-0] scored a statement win last night in Inglewood, California.

The Donegal middleweight faced a supposedly stiff test against Puerto Rican KO artist Jorge Melendez, but it was Quigley who showed devastating power at The Forum.

The Golden Boy starlet knocked Melendez down thrice in the opening round before the towel was eventually thrown in.
