Irish Boxer Jason Quigley Has His Sights Set On Golovkin And Canelo

Donegal boxer Jason Quigley is aiming for the very top of the middleweight division targeting future fights with boxing superstars Gennady Golovkin, Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez and Danny Jacobs.

Quigley, who owns a professional record of 12-0 with 10 KO’s, has enjoyed a flawless 2016 with first round victories over Jorge Melendez and Freddy Lopez, coupled with a unanimous decision victory over James de la Rosa.

The Ballybofey native is currently ranked #32 in the world according to boxrec.com, and he’s already planning a sizable 2017 with some potential super fights with some of the very best fighters in the middleweight division.

“Billy Joe Saunders, Canelo, Golovkin, Danny Jacobs… these are the boys that I need to beat, so these are the boys I have my eyes on,” Quigley said in an interview with BBC Radio Foyle.

“I’m in this sport to become multiple world champion and make as much money as I can.

“My next fight will be the end of February, start of March. 2017 is going to be a massive year for Team Quigley because, for me, I just want to keep climbing the ladder.

“I want them belts. I have an end goal of being world champion. There is nothing on my mind only my next fight. That’s another hurdle on the path for me and I have to get over that hurdle.”
