Jason Quigley Dismisses Retirement Talk As He Targets Croke Park Comeback

Jason Quigley Dismisses Retirement Talk As He Targets Croke Park Comeback

Irish middleweight boxer Jason Quigley has insisted retirement is not on his mind as he targets a big return to boxing.

The Donegal boxer's last fight was for the WBO world Middleweight title against Demetrius Andrade in November 2021, but it ended in disappointment as he was stopped in the second round in his first title shot.

Having been inactive for 15 months, there was speculation that it could have been the last we have seen of Jason Quigley.

However, speaking on the Rocky Road podcast, it seems like Jason Quigley has big plans for 2023, with one big event on his mind.

The show’s not over! One hundred per cent I’ll be back in the ring this year. There’s the Croke Park thing coming up, it would be unbelievable, once that gets the green light,  and hopefully very shortly that will get the green light.

I have boxed with DAZN and I have boxed with Matchroom many times, obviously more recently. My last couple of fights have been all DAZN and Matchroom so it would be a no-brainer to be on the Croke Park card.

Look, it’s been over a year now since my last fight so I would love to, and I definitely will have a fight before Croke Park as well. People who know me know I’m always in the gym, I’m always training, I’m never out of shape too bad."

With Eddie Hearn hoping to finalise a date for Katie Taylor's homecoming in the summer in Croke Park, it sounds like it could be a busy year for Jason Quigley, as he attempts to put himself back in contention for a world title shot.

Hearn had in fact named Quigley as someone he would like to see fight in Croke Park as part of a huge Irish card, with Luke Keeler named as a possible opponent.

The Dublin boxer also lost a title shot to Andrade, suffering a TKO defeat in the ninth round.
