JASON Quigley journeys into the unknown tonight as he takes on an opponent only confirmed this morning.
Quigley had little time to weigh up Toltutomi Agunbiade, but speaking before his opponent was confirmed remained unfazed despite not knowing who his foe was to be. .
The Golden Boy fighter, who is on the undercard of Yoshihiro Kamegai v Alfonso Gomez in California this Friday night on a card that also includes Jamie Kavanagh, believes his amateur schooling has prepared him to lock horns against unknown opponents
“That’s the great thing about coming from such a high-class amateur background,” he told Sky Sports. “I prepare in the gym and I let my opponent worry about me.
“If there’s any footage on my opponent then great, I’ll look at their weak spots to see what I can capitalise on, but if not I’ll get in there and let them worry about me. I’ll do my plan, I’ll do what I’m good at. I’m not worried who I come up against. I know that I train hard every day. If there’s any footage on my opponent then great, I’ll look at their weak spots to see what I can capitalise on, but if not I’ll get in there and let them worry about me..”
Quigley goes into his fifth pro fight on the back of four successive knock outs, but claims he isn’t a seek and destroy merchant. The middleweight prospect claims winning is his first priority.
He added: “If it comes, it comes. It’s great to get these KOs and these early stoppages because it shows all the other middleweights what I’m all about. It sends a statement.
“I get in the ring ready to go 12 rounds and if it happens to be over in the first round, mid-way through the fight, in the last round or if I win on points – I get in there to get the job done.
“Plans change as soon as you step through those ropes. You might have to go to plan B straight away so you have to be prepared.
“But if these knockouts keep coming, of course it will be great for me.”
