Quigley targets another KO win and a return to Ireland

Jason Quigley doesn’t want to let down his blood thirsty fans, and will do his utmost to make it nine straight knockout victories on Friday night.

The Golden Boy middleweight prospect certainly doesn’t hang around, and has treated his followers to a KO victory every time he has entered the ring. He is hopeful he can keep the streak going and give the fans what they have come accustom too when he faces Marchristopher Adkins in the Hard Rock Cafe in Las Vegas.

The Dallas native has only lost one of his six pro fights and has never been stopped so he looks like he might have the capability of taking the Donegal man the six, but unlike a lot of young prospects who like to bank rounds Quigley has no desire to hear the final bell.

“I aim to round off a great year for me with another great performance and if I see a knockout opportunity I’ll take it,” Quigley told World Boxing News.

“I think every fight someone expects a KO as I don’t think fans go to watch a decision. I think my fans expect a KO since that has been my winning way for the past eight fights. If I can I’ll give it to them I will. I just want to stay busy and keep climbing the ladder.”

All the 23 year old World silver medal winner’s pro clashes have been Stateside and Quigley, who has only gone beyond two rounds once in eight fights, has expressed a desire to fight at home.

“100% I will fight in Ireland. I want to come and put on a boxing event and not just a fight. I want to make it a big deal for the fans who have supported me all the way from the beginning to now and I’ll make sure that happens,” he promised.
