Jason Quigley’s crossroads fight with Shane Mosley Jr [16(9)-3(0)] is back on.
The Donegal fighter twice saw scheduled bouts with the son of fight legend Shane Mosley fall through this year.
The pair were initially meant to fight in Russia in January and most recently the middleweight was set to put a frustrating period of inactivity behind him by trading leather with the American in Fantasy Springs on February 13.
An issue with the main event put paid to the first meeting and an illness suffered by the world amateur silver medalist saw the February clash called off.
Hopefully, it will be third time lucky for the unfortunate Quigley [18(14)-1(1)] as the bout is back on. There has yet to be an official announcement but former middleweight world champion and current trainer of the 29-year-old, Andy Lee confirmed that the 160lbs fighters will fight for the NABO title when speaking on Boxing Social.
Speaking previously Oscar De La Hoya claimed victory against Mosley will set the Golden Boy fighter up for a big 2021. Indeed, the Hall of Fame fighter suggested the winner would go straight into world contention.
Quigley seemed to agree and when the fight was made he said: “I feel that I am very close to a real breakout fight to get a big title shot and this is the next step on that journey.”
The Ballybofey 160lbs operator hasn’t traded leather since January of last year when he beat Fernando Marin. He has been training beside former heavyweight champion of the world Joseph Parker, who has also teamed up with Lee, ahead of the big man’s Derek Chisora May 1 clash.
