Very poor performance by Quigley in my opinion. I can't see him going very far with his style and his heart alone. Had Hernandez had any real power, Jason would have been getting some zzzzzzzz's.

Sorry but Quigley is absolutely pathetic and is a KTFO waiting to happen. Last night that was not worthy of any main event match up! Not even a club ballroom boxing event. The whole card was pathetic!

I don't think Quigley's gelling well with the Ingle style of boxing. Maybe try getting him switched over to Adam Booth?
