Jason Quigley ready to remind the world of his capabilities

Jason Quigley [18(14)-1(1)] wants to remind the world what is he capable of on May 29.

The middleweight fights Shane Mosley Jnr [17(10)-3] for the NABO middleweight at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas.

The 160lbs meeting plays out on the undercard of Devin Haney’s WBC World lightweight title defence against Jorge Linares and will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN.

The fight is the Donegal fighter’s first in 15 months and his first of real note since his surprise defeat to Tureano Johnson in the summer of 2019.

The World amateur silver medal winner has slipped off the radar somewhat during that period out but gets the chance to make an impression and put his name back on the lips of the fight fraternity.

“This fight is a massive step for me. There is a lot of meaning to this one.I know what I am capable of doing in this division and I want to show that to the world live on DAZN,” said the fighter who is currently in camp alongside Joseph Parker.

“It’s on a great platform, on a great occasion in the capital of professional boxing – there’s no better place to perform.”

Quigley twice saw scheduled bouts with the son of fight legend Shane Mosley fall through this year.

The pair were initially meant to fight in Russia in January and most recently the middleweight was set to put a frustrating period of inactivity behind him by trading leather with the American in Fantasy Springs on February 13.

An issue with the main event put paid to the first meeting and an illness suffered by the world amateur silver medalist saw the February clash called off.

The crossroads fight has since been remade much to the delight of the 29-year-old.

“I’m excited that this fight is happening,” Quigley adds.

“It’s been in the works for a while now. I’m delighted to be getting back into the ring and I’m ready to rumble.”

Quigley, now listed at number 14 on the WBC world rankings, is eager to shine with a title on the line.

Golden Boy Promotions middleweight contender Quigley has had two stoppage wins since linking up with former world middleweight champion Andy Lee.

The Sheer Sports managed fighter previously won the NABF middleweight belt against Glen Tapia in March 2017, defending the title in 2018 against Freddy Hernandez.
