Share this article


Donegal middleweight Jason Quigley has revealed that there's a 'high possibility' that he'll fight Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez later this year. 

Quigley has labelled his Golden Boy stablemate the "face of boxing" and says he'd relish the chance to step into the ring with Mexico's four-division world champion.

"Turning professional on July 12, on the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, on the Canelo-Lara undercard, and now look at us," Quigley said on Sky Sports when asked about the possible bout in Las Vegas in September.

"A few years on and I'm possibly going to be fighting Canelo Alvarez. It's been a crazy career for me. It's been an enjoyable one, there's been a lot of ups and downs.

"But it's a high possibility now. Golden Boy and my Sheer Sports Management team have been in touch with me. They have offered me the fight, to fight Canelo Alvarez, and it's all there.

"We're just waiting now for the possibility. Of course, there's other boxers that could possibly be getting the fight as well. But I have been asked, 'would I take the fight?' 100%, I said 'yes.'

"I want to get in with the best in the world. Canelo Alvarez is the best out there at the minute, he's the face of boxing, and I want to get in there and I want to see how good he really is, and give him everything I've got, if it all comes off."
