Los Angeles based management company Sheer Sports Management have confirmed the acquisition of Middleweight boxer Jason Quigley to a multi year management contract.

Quigley, 22, who hails from Balleybofey, County Donegal, is very well known throughout his home country and the world having won Three European Boxing Championship titles -2009 Youths- 2012 under 23′s – 2013 Seniors.
In October of 2013, Quigley made boxing history by becoming the first male Irish boxer to make the finals and claimed Silver in AIBA World Amateur Boxing Championships.
“This is an important signing for Sheer Sports, we are thrilled to add a talent like Jason to our growing stable of future World Champions. The kid has amazing appeal both in and outside of the ring, Jason has proven himself for years throughout Europe and most recently the World, American fans are going to fall in love with him”-CEO Ken Sheer
His loss, though not unexpected since he failed to enter the 2014 Irish Elites will come as a blow to Billy Walsh and the High Performance team who have helped in no small measure to make Quigley the outstanding champion he is today.
The loss will be felt too by the AIBA who had been expecting a call from the Stranorlar man following an offer which it is understood he received from the sport’s governing body some weeks ago.
“I’m really, really excited. I’ve been contemplating whether to make this move or not, but I’ve gone with this feeling in my heart that I have the excitement and hunger to go on and fulfil my childhood dreams of becoming a world professional champion,” he told Sky Sports for whom he has been an Sky Sports Scholarship Ambassador (together with Katie Taylor) in Ireland.
