Jason Quigley believes that the Katie Taylor rematch with Amanda Serrano has to take place at Croke Park.

The blockbuster fight which is scheduled to take place on May 20th in Dublin has attracted controversy after promoters Matchroom were not prepared to pay the security bill associated with having the fight in Croke Park.

It is now expected that chairman of Matchroom, Eddie Hearn, will fly to Dublin on Monday to hold talks with Conor McGregor who has offered to cover the security costs.

The venue of the rematch remains unclear but Quigley is adamant that there is only one place for it.

"Katie Taylor's fight has to happen in Croke Park," he tells Balls.ie.

"It's definitely up in the air at the minute whether it will or won't. I think it definitely should because the hype is all about it now. It's good that there's been talk of it being somewhere else, but there's been such a negative vibe about it being somewhere else because everybody was so excited about Croke Park. The last man to fight there was Mohammad Ali! It's iconic.

"Katie Taylor definitely deserves it. The people of Ireland deserve it. The fans that have followed her all her career deserve it as well."


Quigley is set to return to action when he headlines the National Stadium on April 1st. It will be the first time he has fought in Ireland since turning pro in 2014.

The Ballybofey man will face Danish fighter Kim Poulsen.

It's been 15 months since Quigley lost to Demetrius Andrade in his last fight but could he face two major bouts in the space of two months if the opportunity to fight on the Taylor undercard arose?

Boxing is a funny old game, there's always moving parts," he says.

"We'll take care of this one first, put in a good performance, and move on then and see what the next opportunity brings.

Quigley fighting on Taylor's undercard at a sold out Croke Park would certainly be something to relish.
