Quigley-Marin on DAZN - LIVE Results From Costa Mesa

Jason Quigley looks to pick up his second straight win, as he faces Mexico’s Fernando Marin in a scheduled 10-round middleweight bout Thursday evening at The OC Hangar in Costa Mesa, California.

The bout headlines the latest installment of Golden Boy Fight on DAZN.

Ireland’s Quigley (17-1, 13KOs) rebounded from his lone career loss with a three-round wipeout of Abraham Cordero in this very venue just seven weeks ago. The bout was his first under the tutelage of countryman and former middleweight champion Andy Lee.

Marin (16-4-3, 12KOs) has suffered all four career defeats within his last seven starts.



Misai Nistor’s second pro bout offered little in the way of resistance.

The 2016 Olympian from Romania made quick work of Mexico’s Jaime Solorio, scoring two knockdowns en route to a 1st round stoppage in their heavyweight heat which opened the DAZN tripleheader.

Nistor twice floored Solorio courtesy of body shots, the latter producing the ending.

Solorio (12-4-2, 9KOs) was fighting for the first time as a heavyweight, having spent the bulk of his career at super middleweight and light heavyweight. At 5’9” and a portly 234 ½ pounds, the Mexican journeyman never threatened to put up much of a challenge. Nistor (2-0, 2KOs) made the bout even less competitive than thought to be on paper. Solorio found himself on the canvas early, catching a clean right hand to the liver but managing to beat the count.

The second time around was enough to prompt referee Rudy Barragan to put an end to the contest.

Nistor picks up his second win in seven weeks, having made his pro debut at this very venue last December. The 29-year old former amateur standout remains best known for his knockout win of Anthony Joshua in the 2011 European Amateur Boxing Championships.

Gregorio ‘Goyo’ Morales continues to remain perfect in the pro ranks.

The 19-year old junior featherweight from Mexico picked up his third straight knockout, the latest coming in a 4th round stoppage of veteran Giovanni Delgado (16-10, 9KOs). Three knockdowns paved the way for the win, which came at 0:48 of round four.

Traffic was all one way in the bout, with Morales (11-0, 7KOs) taking the fight to Delgado, who often found himself pinned against the ropes and fighting on the defensive. Morales dialed up the pressure in round three, twice flooring his countryman but forced to extend the action into round four. Another knockdown early in the frame prompted referee Jerry Cantu to immediately wave off the contest.

Opening the Facebook-streamed portion of the evening, Mexico’s Eduardo Rafael Reyes prevailed via unanimous decision win over countryman Daniel Pareles in a four-round battle of upside down journeymen.

Scores were 40-36 (twice) and 39-37 in favor of Reyes, who was the sharper boxer throughout the contest.

Reyes (10-17, 6KOs) offered lateral movement, frustrating the stationary Perales (11-20-2) who clearly came to fight rather than box. It was a tactic which proved wise in addition to mixing up Reyes’ luck, having suffered 15 of his 17 career losses in the United States, and riding an eight-fight winless streak heading into Thursday’s contest.

The tactic worked nearly to perfection, and certainly well enough to place him back in the win column for the first time in nearly three years.

Perales continues to slide in the wrong direction, having now lost three straight and with just one win in his last 16 starts dating back to November 2016.
