JASON QUIGLEY is ready to showcase himself on what he says is a ‘massive weekend of boxing ‘ in Las Vegas next Friday.
In seven days’ time, the Ballybofey man goes between the ropes of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas looking to make it nine-out-of-nine in his professional career.
Quigley has recorded eight inside-the-distance wins so far since moving to Los Angeles to link up with Golden Boy Promotions in 2014.
So far in 2015, Quigley has put Lanny Dardar, Tolutomi Agunbiade, Joshua Snyder, Tom Howard and Michael Faulk to the sword.

Ahead of 2016, a year that his team hope will be a breakout year for the former world silver and European gold medalist, Quigley will aim to go 9-0 next week before returning home for Christmas.
“As soon as I get through them ropes, the guy across from me is there to take something away from me. I have worked too hard and sacrificed too much to let someone take anything from me – that’s where the animal comes out,” said Quigley, who has been dubbed ‘El Animal’ by the boxing scribes of Tinseltown.
On the same card as Quigley next Friday, Diego De La Hoya (12-0), a cousin of Golden Boy Promotions founder and former ten-time world champion Oscar De La Hoya, fights Giovanni Delgado for the WBC Youth World super-bantamweight title.
The following night in the nearby Mandalay Bay Events Center, the ‘fight of the year’ takes place when Canelo Alvarez (45-1-1) and Miguel Cotto (40-4) clash.
“It’s a massive opportunity for me to showcase what I have because it’s a massive weekend of boxing and hardcore boxing fans will be in Vegas for the weekend,” Quigley said.
“I’m really looking forward to getting on the stage and doing what I do best in front of the major boxing fans.”
Quigley recently inked a deal with Everlast and is in the shape of his life, as these videos show.
Yesterday, Quigley took part in a media day at the City of Angels Boxing Gym on S Hill Street, L.A, where he put on a show for the LA boxing media with his trainer, Manny Robles.
