‘Mean’ is the last word that comes to mind when Jason Quigley.
It could be the sparkling smile, his pleasant and friendly nature, or the fact he is a self-confessed Mammy’s Boy, but not many would associate maliciousness with the likeable Donegal middleweight.
Granted the Golden Boy prospect has shown he has bad intentions once he steps through the ropes with 10 knockouts in 12 wins, however he claims he went up a notch in terms of menace going into his most recent and possibly most impressive win.
The keen-to-be-pushed 25 year old scored a first round stoppage against Puerto Rican knockout artist Jorge Melendezon on the undercard of Bernard Hopkins v Joe Smith Jr, at The Forum in Inglewood, California and he admits he was feeling like a ‘bad man’ going into the bout.
Quigley told Fino Boxing that “I don’t know what it is, but leading up to this fight I’ve been feeling like a bad man. I don’t know what it is, I think it may be the time I had out of the ring, but the lead up to this fight I was feleing mean, I was feeling bad, and it proved in there.”
“2017 is going to be the year for Jason Quigley. A lot of people know me out here in California, in parts of America, and in Ireland, but my plan and my goal now is to let the World know who Jason Quigley is.”
