Jason Quigley has made a move that will only increase his chances of becoming a World champion claims his new coach.
The Donegal middleweight confirmed yesterday that he will be relocating for the next stage of his career.
26 year old Quigley, who is undefeated in 13 fights, has left Manny Robles and The Rock Gym in Carson, California, and has teamed up with Dominic Ingle at the Ingle Gym in Sheffield to train alongside the likes of WBO middleweight champ Billy Joe Saunders.
Junior Witter, Kell Brook, Johnny Nelson, Kelly Brook and Prince Naseem Hamed have all come through the famous Wincobank Gym and Ingle is confident he can help Quigley equal the feats achieved by the four World champs the gym has produced.
Indeed the son of legendary Dublin trainer Brendan Ingle is adamant the Sheer Sports-managed and Golden Boy-promoted middleweight has made the right decision in trading the sunny climes of California for Sheffield.
“Jason is 13-0, he’s unbeaten, but he has come under the radar here. He has world title potential. Not everyone has that, but Jason does. He has made the right move to get him to the world title,” Ingle explained.
“He’s got a good style, he’s smart and he has a good boxing brain. We will bring him through and see what works.
“He will get quality sparring here, too, and we’ll get him on a good programme immediately.
“Jason’s at a point in his career where he’s looking for a new direction and he needs to get to the next level.
“He needs to be happy and our team will do that. We travel together as a team no matter who is in the ring. That’s important. You need the good team around you and he’ll recognise that here.
“We’ll work to Jason’s style. Years ago, people used to try to train like Naseem, but he was a one-off. It’s no good to change a style. You have to embellish it and give him the confidence to try new things.
“He keeps close to the weight, he keeps fit and he’s got good pedigree. When you look at the Irish amateurs of the last ten years, he’s the one name that just kept cropping up.
“Jason has made the right move here. He’s a good, accurate fighter and I’m looking forward to starting work with him.”
