Donegal's Jason Quigley will make his long-awaited ring return this Easter Saturday in Boston.
Quigley (13-0, 10 KOs) will be up against Puerto Rican Daniel Rosario (11-3, 10KOs) at the Marina Bay Sportsplex, Quincy.
Quigley, one of the most promising boxers of the middleweight division, has been out of action since injuring his right hand on his way to a points win over Glen Tapia last March to win the NABF middleweight title.
The countdown to the big fight is on.
Quigley says he's buzzing and all set to go.
"It's time for me to ship up to Boston," he told his followers on social media.
He added that he will take all the good wishes and all the positive energy from his recent first open workout in Ballybofey.
"Twelve months out of the ring, I can not wait to get back in there and get to work," he stated.
It will be Quigley’s first bout under new trainer Dominic Ingle.
“I’m ready to light up Boston,” said Quigley. “It’s will be amazing to fight again, but it will be even more special because I’ll be on the east coast with all my Irish fans. This is going to be special, and I will put on a great show.”
Quigley-Rosario will be the co-main event.
The event will be held at the Marina Bay Sportsplex in Quincy, Mass. ESPN2 will air the fights.
