Opponent for Jason Quigley’s next fight announced

Golden Boy’s Jason Quigley will enter the ring for the eight time as a professional on Saturday night at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Los Angeles.

Across the ring from the Donegal middleweight for the six round bout will be Michael Faulk [3(1)-2(0)] of Minnesota. The American is a rangy southpaw and had a successful amateur career. As a pro, Faulk has been inactive for over two and a half years since his last bout – a win over 11-2 prospect Jon Schmidt.

Since turning over to the paid ranks last Summer, Ballybofey’s Quigley has stopped all seven of his opponents, and will be looking to continue this streak at the weekend .

The bout will be part of the untelevised undercard of HBO Latino’s coverage of the NABA welterweight title bout between Johan Pérez and Dmitry Mikhaylenko.
