Demetrius Andrade to Make Fifth Title Defense Against Jason Quigley
Demetrius “Boo Boo” Andrade will top a World title quadruple-header as he defends his WBO Middleweight against Jason Quigley at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire on Friday November 19, live worldwide on DAZN.
Andrade (30-0 18 KOs) puts his crown on the line for the fifth time. The Rhode Island star will be looking for a statement win as he hunts the unification blockbusters with his fellow belt holders at middleweight. The 33 year-old, who picked up the vacant strap in his first fight with Eddie Hearn in Boston in October 2018, will make it five straight fights with European challengers when he steps through the ropes against Quigley.
Quigley (19-1 14 KOs) moved into prime position to land a World title shot in May by beating Golden Boy stablemate Shane Mosley Jr by majority decision. The former amateur star becomes the second Irishman to challenge “Boo Boo” after Luke Keeler took on the WBO ruler in Miami in January 2020.
“November 19, it’s me again! Jason Quigley, world rated, good amateur pedigree, decent skills, comes to fight, and hats off to him. He’s actually willing to step in the ring with me, which you can’t say for any of these other so-called top guys. On November 19 though, I show him that there are levels to this game.
“Just keep winning! That’s all I can do. Go in there, handle my business, do my job, look sensational, come out healthy and then it’s onto the next. If you have a belt at 160 or 168 pounds, let’s go! Put the politics aside.
“Have your people call Eddie. Let’s get down to business. Charlo, stop running your mouth, making up excuse after excuse. You’re a fighter, let’s fight bro. GGG, where you at? Unify against Murata and then let’s put the three belts on the line next year.
“Canelo you going to run up to 175? Cool, I can meet you there, no problem. First things first though, I need to go out on November 19, defend my championship belt, and put on a spectacular performance, and that’s exactly what I plan on doing.”
