Quigley to go pro in America

Jason QuigleyIts reported today that  world silver and european gold medalist Jason Quigley will join the pro ranks in America  under the biggest name in professional boxing.
The Finn Valley fighter and his father and trainer Conor are believed to be in negotiations with Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions and Top Rank which is run by Bob Arum.
The Star reports that Jason will sign for Golden Boy because of 56 year old Al Haymon.
Haymon was last year named as the most powerful person in boxing.
Meanwhile Donegal’s Paddy Doherty, a double national champion and Commonwealth Games bronze medalist has advised Quigley not to turn professional.
Speaking with the Donegal Democrat Paddy said “the pro game is tough and I think he should remain amatuer and set his sights on a gold medal in Rio De Janeiro in 2016”
“Its a big decision for Jason and I wish him well if he decides to go. But even at this late hour my advice would be to stay amateur and give Rio a right rattle.”
The Democrats piece also linked Ireland’s most decorated fighter with  Green Blood Boxing in Philadelphia, the same promoters who signed John Joe Nevin.
An announcement on the future of Jason Quigley could be made in the coming days.
