Donegal's Jason Quigley to fight for WBO middleweight title

Jason Quigley has been given the chance to land his first world title.

The Donegal pugilist will fight Demetrius Andrade for the WBO middleweight title on November 19.

The match will headline a card at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Andrade is unbeaten in his 30 professional outings, and has 18 knock-outs to his name. The Quigley bout will be the fifth time he's defended the WBO belt.

Quigley's most recent outing saw him claim the NABO middleweight title with a majority decision win over Shane Mosley Jr. in Las Vegas.

“I’ve worked my whole career to get into this position of becoming world champion,” said Quigley.

“Demetrius is a great champion but now it’s my time and that world title is coming back to Ireland.”

While Quigley is relishing the opportunity, Andrade sees the fight only as a step towards so-called bigger names like Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin.

“Jason Quigley, world rated, good amateur pedigree, decent skills, comes to fight, and hats off to him, he’s actually willing to step in the ring with me, which you can’t say for any of these other so-called top guys," Andrade said, "On November 19 though I show him that there are levels to this game.

"Just keep winning, that’s all I can do. Go in there, handle my business, do my job, look sensational, come out healthy and then it’s onto the next.

"If you have a belt at 160 or 168 lbs, let’s go. Put the politics aside, have your people call Eddie [Hearn]. Let’s get down to business. [Jermell] Charlo, stop running your mouth, making up excuse after excuse. You’re a fighter, let’s fight bro.

"GGG [Golovkin], where you at? Unify against [Ryoto] Murata and then let’s put the three belts on the line next year.

“Canelo you going to run up to 175? Cool, I can meet you there, no problem. First things first though, I need to go out on November 19, defend my championship belt, and put on a spectacular performance, and that’s exactly what I plan on doing.”
