Both fighters weighed in at 159.6-pounds.

Quigley will defend his NABF Middleweight Title for the first time since capturing the regional belt against Glen "Jersey Boy" Tapia last year and will make an impressive step up in competition. This exciting bout will headline the Oct. 18 edition of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN and take place at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.  ESPN2 and ESPN Deportes will air the fights beginning at 10:00 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT, and stream live on ESPN3 starting at 8:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. PT.

Quigley will go into his second fight with new trainer Dominic Ingle, who also trains the likes of Kell "Special K" Brook, Liam "Beefy" Smith and other world-class fighters. The 27-year-old will return after inflicting Daniel Rosario with his first-ever stoppage loss in March. That win over Rosario was Quigley's first fight in a year after injuring his right hand against Tapia in 2017, and Quigley is ready to return to the limelight in his sixth appearance at Fantasy Springs.

Hernandez is a veteran who has faced the likes of Alfredo "El Perro" Angulo, Demetrius "Boo Boo" Andrade, Erislandy "The American Dream" Lara, and Andre Berto. Hernandez is an experienced fighter who has prevented many prospects from leaping to contention status. His most recent notable win was a unanimous decision victory against former WBO interim champion Aflredo Angulo in August 2016.
