Ahead of his anticipated clash, Jason "El Animal"
Quigley (12-0, 10 KOs) hosted a media workout in Los
Angeles on Wednesday, March 15 to discuss his upcoming
bout against Glen "Jersey Boy" Tapia (23-3, 15 KOs) for
the vacant NABF Middleweight title on Thursday, March
23rd at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, CA. The
main event bout will jump start the highly anticipated
inaugural edition of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN series,
and will be broadcast live on ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes.
Below is what "El Animal" had to say at his media work
"I'm training at 110%, and I am focused on March 23rd. I
feel honored and humbled that Golden Boy has chosen me
to lead the ESPN series, and be able to show the world
what kind of talent I have, and what type of shows
Golden Boy can put together. I have a lot of fans from
back home who are coming to the US to support me, and I
am honestly so humbled by that. I hope that one day I
can give back, and go home to Ireland to give my
hometown fans a special treat."
"I never focus on what my opponent brings to the table -
whether they're a good fighter, a bad fighter, whether
they are talented or not - I am only focused on what I
bring to the table that night. I only concentrate on
myself, and the fights before me."
"I love my Mexican fans. In fact, my love of boxing
comes from Mexican fighters, especially Marco Antonio
Barrera. When I watched him fight for the first time,
and saw him transform in the ring I was just hooked on
the sport and I knew that I needed to become a boxer."
"My team and I have done our homework and we have put
together a plan A, B, C and D so that come fight night
we are prepared for any fighter we might face. Glen
Tapia needs to be prepared for what Jason Quigley is
bringing to the ring. I'm not going home empty. "
