Tureano Johnson: People Will See My Best Against Jason Quigley

By Chris Glover

Tureano Johnson is deep into training camp ahead of for his NABF middleweight title challenge against undefeated Irishman Jason Quigley on July 18 in Indio, California.

Johnson returns to his natural weight as a professional in middleweight to challenge the undefeated Quigley, who captured the NABF strap from New Jersey's Glen Tapia back in 2017. The 2008 Beijing Olympian has set up base in New York with Andre Rozier and has opened up about his camp ahead of the make or break fight against Quigley.

Johnson said, "I am very fit, I feel far better conditioned for this fight than I have in the past as I have taken a more scientific approach to training for this fight. I have felt a massive change and I feel that I will show a different and a far better version of myself on July 18.

"I have worked in both Atlanta and in New York with Andre Rozier and the team for this fight and found a really good balance for this camp and that is where I am getting my confidence from. People still haven't seen the best of Tureano Johnson and I believe they will see it against Jason Quigley."


Johnson continued, as he discussed what went wrong in his last outing which resulted in a controversial draw.

He said, "I overlooked my last opponent somewhat and we didn't train correctly for that fight so I have made sure that I don't make that mistake again. Things have been a lot different since then and I have taken the necessary steps to win this fight.

"We took the last fight on short notice and I was no where near my best but this fight will be like watching a different fighter I can promise you that."

Johnson's opponent on July 18 at Fantasy Springs Resort in California comes in the form of Donegal's one time world amateur silver medalist Jason Quigley and Johnson, a fellow amateur standout in his own right gave his take on his opponent on the Golden Boy promoted event.

The Bahamas native stated, "Jason is a nice kid and I have a lot of respect for him but if he is overlooking me he is making a massive mistake as I am not overlooking him by any stretch of the imagination. I am by far the biggest test of his career to date and I believe that I will emerge victoriously and move on to clashing for the world title eventually.

"Quigley is a dangerous opponent, he can really fight but I am excited about this fight as it's going to be a great fight for the fans and one that I believe I will win in an entertaining fashion."

This should be a decent fight. Would've been more confident if Quigley was still with Robles but we'll see what happens. Big step up for Quigley
