Jason Quigley (19-1, 14KOs) hosted a press conference in Ireland ahead of his 12-round middleweight fight against Demetrius Andrade (30-0, 18KOs) for the WBO world middleweight title at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire on Friday November 19, live worldwide on DAZN.
Andrade has had a very difficult time securing an opponent - and Quigley was more than happy to accept the opportunity of a world title fight.
“He needs fights and the big guns are avoiding him. I’ll happily step in and bring that title back to Ireland. I’m at the perfect stage in my life and my career to deal with this situation. I’m not the young kid now living for the whole excitement of fighting for a world title," Quigley said.
“This is just another fight and I training my absolute ass off in the gym to get that W (win). To get that W will mean so much in this fight than in any other fight."
Quigley is a tremendous underdog in the contest.
The Irish boxer has won three fights in a row since suffering his first career defeat, a stoppage loss at the hands of Tureano Johnson back in July of 2019.
Despite the odds, Quigley believes that he has more than enough in his arsenal to score a stunning upset over Andrade.
And he expects a lot of support to be present.
“I know that I can bring stuff to the table that is going to upset him, make him see things that he’s not always seen inside the ring," Quigley said.
“I honestly believe the Irish fans will outweigh his fans come fight night 100 percent."
