First-round KO brings Donegal's Jason Quigley 10th win out of 10

‘El Animal’ tore into Lopez with clinical body shots.

DONEGAL’S JASON QUIGLEY kept up his winning run in professional boxing last night with a first round knock-out win over Freddy Lopez in Indio, California.

The 24-year-old hurt the Mexican badly with hard early body shots and Lopez, a late replacement for the bout, was knocked down twice inside the fight’s two-minute stretch.

Lopez first took a knee after the Ballybofey middleweight crashed a blow to his kidney.
