Donegal middleweight Jason Quigley moved to 14-0 (11) on the weekend with a sixth round TKO over Daniel Rosario Cruz 11-4 (10) at the Marina Bay SportsPlex in Quincy, Massachusetts on Saturday night.

The unbeaten 26-year-old has his Puerto Rican opponent on the canvas twice in the sixth round but said that he had to work hard for the win.

“He was a tough kid, he’d never been stopped and I knew coming into this fight that this was the perfect fight for me to get back to myself and see where I’m at,” Quigley told Irish-Boxing.com.

“I broke him down early on, shook the ring rust off, and took him out when I had the ring rust off.

I hurt him to the body and I could see him wincing. They call me ‘The Animal’, that name is kind of changing, but I think I proved I am an animal tonight again.”

In his last fight Quigley broke his right hand against the hard head of Glen Tapia to claim the vacant NABF middleweight title by unanimous decision over 10 rounds.

“Of course, there were a lot of doubts in my head over letting my right hand go,” said Quigley.

“I landed it early, hurt him early, but I didn’t go for the knockout because I knew he was a tough kid.”

Quigley recently made the move to new trainer Dominic Ingle’s Wincobank Gym and credits the move for preparing him for this win.

“I work hard, I leave no stone unturned, and that’s why I won,” said Quigley, who is rnaked number six by the WBC at 160-pounds. “I want to thank my new coach Dominic Ingle for getting me into shape because that was a tough kid and I needed to be in shape.

“My new team helped me break my opponent down.”
