Fighters featured on the pay-per-view undercard of Canelo vs. Khan, held an open workout for fans at the MGM Grand Hotel & Restort today. Co-main event David Lemieux (34-3, 31 KOs), and Glen “Jersey Boy” Tapia (23-2, 15 KOs) who will meet in a 10-round middleweight fight; Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera (22-5, 7 KOs) who takes on East Los Angeles’ undefeated star Frankie “Pitbull” Gomez (20-0, 13 KOs) in a 10-round welterweight fight; and Brazilian star Patrick Teixeira (26-0, 22 KOs) and Curtis Stevens (27-5, 20 KOs) who will open up the Pay-Per-View telecast in a 10-round career-defining middleweight bout.
Former amateur standout Jason Quigley of Ireland is now one of the hottest prospects in boxing. The unbeaten middleweight is 10-0(9) and on Saturday night’s Canelo Alvarez-Amir Khan card in Las Vegas, the 24-year-old will take a step up in class against the experienced James De La Rosa.
Quigley, who is signed by Golden Boy and Sheer Sports, is hugely excited about the fight and is looking forward to putting on an impressive performance.
Irish native Jason Quigley looks to remain undefeated tonight at the Belasco Theater in downtown Los Angeles. The former amateur standout, now 3-0 as a professional (all wins by stoppage), faces Lanny Dardar (2-2-2, 1KO) as part of Golden Boy Promotions’ inaugural “LA Fight Night” card. Their super-middleweight bout will be part of the televised portion of the card, which will air on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes at 7:30pm pacific time.
This will be Quigley’s first fight of 2015; he’s planning to build on the momentum he created last year. Indeed 2014 was quite a year for the blue chip prospect. After winning a silver medal at the World Amateur Boxing Championships in late 2013, Quigley decided to forego a run at the 2016 Olympics and announced he was going pro shortly thereafter.
