Golden Boy Promotions Puts
The Spotlight On Jason Quigley
One of Ireland's hottest exports is Jason "El Animal"
Quigley (12-0, 10 KOs), who has made Los Angeles his home in
pursuit to become a world champion. In one of his biggest
steps toward the major goal, Quigley not only will jump
start the highly anticipated Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN
series this Thursday, March 23rd, but will make his first
play for a title in his career as he battles Glen "Jersey
Boy" Tapia (23-3, 15 KOs) for the NABF Middleweight Title
broadcast live on ESPN.
Training with highly respected Manny Robles at The Rock
Boxing Gym in Los Angeles, "El Animal" is now on the fast
track to becoming one of the top contenders in the sport.
Golden Boy Promotions caught up with the Irishman ahead of
the biggest fight of his career yet, in an exclusive Q&A
Here is what "El Animal" had to say about his upcoming bout:
"Every opponent that I've gotten in in my professional
career has prepared me to get to this moment right now.
People don't understand what they're dealing with when they
get inside the ring with Jason Quigley because for me this
is everything. I train my heart out and I work hard in this
gym to become the best."
"It all started off by me and my father setting up to watch
Marco Antonio Barrera. As soon as he got inside through them
ropes, he was a different man and that excited me. From that
day on I always wanted to be a world professional champion."
"Every fight is bigger, every fight is getting me that step
closer to become a world champion. I take every fight as a
world title fight because that is my chance to get one step
closer to the world title fight."
"I don't care if its Glen Tapia or who it is across the ring
from me, he's there to stop me from doing what I want to do
and I'm not going to let no man do that. This is my time,
this is my time to shine."
