“This is everything that I’ve trained for, everything I’ve done in my career has been to put myself in this position”

Jason Quigley

“I’m grateful and honoured to be in this position. It’s a great feeling, a great time for me.

We’re not there yet, though. This is part of the journey to becoming a world champion. I’m one fight away now. I’m at the stage of my career now where it’s time to start challenging for and winning world titles.”

QUIGLEY’S SPONSORS

Quigley overcame Shane Mosley Jr in May to land the WBO NABO Middleweight title in May and immediately turned his focus to a bigger moment. 

Andrade won the vacant WBO World Middleweight title with a win over Walter Kautondokwa in October 2018. Four successful defences – including a January 2020 win over Irishman Luke Keeler – have followed for the 33-year-old Rhode Island native. 

Quigley said: “He is a great champion. He has been very avoided in the fight game because of his ability, because of how good he is. Any of the other world champions out there have avoided him because it’s a big risk for them to take.”

The WBO World Middleweight belt has been held twice by Irish boxers. Quigley’s coach, Andy Lee, defeated Matvey Korobov to land the title in 2014 in Las Vegas, while Steve Collins defeated Chris Pyatt, the defending champion, to win it in 1994.

Quigley has boxed twice in the Boston area as a pro. He stopped Greg McCoy in Plymouth in 2014 and Daniel Rosario’s evening ended in the sixth round in Quincy in 2018.

Quigley believes the Irish will be out in force as he returns to America’s east coast for the biggest night of his career.

He said: “This will be the next best thing to a hometown fight for me. I’ve seen the support I’ve had when I boxed in Boston twice. Those fights were nowhere near the magnitude of this one. I’m expecting a massive Irish support. The Irish will outweigh Andrade fans come fight night.”

Quigley, promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and managed by Sheer Sports, is going to America with one aim.

He said: “It’s time now for me to go and get what I deserve, what I’ve worked hard for. I’m going to enjoy the lead-up to this fight. It’s going to be ruthless and relentless – and that won’t change when I get into that ring.

That world title is coming back to Ireland, full stop.”
