Jason Quigley Talks Of ‘Nervous Energy’ For Demetrius Andrade Bout
Jason Quigley feels he’ll have the audience on his side.
Quigley (19-1 14 KOs) feels that Irish fans will be in majority when he takes on Demetrius Andrade for the WBO World Middleweight title on November 19 (Friday) at the SNHU Arena in Manchester.
Before Quigley, another Irishman, Luke Keeler, tried to take the WBO crown from Andrade but ended up losing. He was stopped in the ninth round in Miami in January 2020.
The middleweight champion is undefeated in his career so far, clinching 18 of his 30 wins via knockout.
Nevertheless, Quigley is brimming with confidence but admitted that he has been undergoing a bit of nervousness.
“In the build-up to the fight it’s about controlling emotions, the nervous energy, you have the natural excitement inside of course, but I have a job to do on November 19, to get in there and take care of business,” the challenger said.
Quigley is of the view that the support he will have from the Irish crowd will give him a bit of extra push during the showdown.
“When you are in the ring and you are hurt, you go down, something is not going to plan – when you hear the crowd roaring you on that can give you the extra lift and percentage to get you over the line,” he said.
“Hopefully it won’t come to that, but I know that the support is going to be there and I’m grateful for the fans that have been messaging me and that are coming to the fight.”
