Ireland’s Jason Quigley, who had a fine career as an amateur, is now 7-0 with seven knockouts as a pro after stopping Tom Howard midway through the second round of their super middleweight fight Saturday at the L.A. Sports Arena.
The bout was scheduled for six rounds and was contested underneath the Mauricio Herrera-Hank Lundy junior welterweight main event.
Quigley, who in 2013 won a silver medal at middleweight for Ireland in the World Championships in Kazakhstan, decked Howard twice in the second round before referee Tom Taylor waved off the bout at 1:21. Howard, of Biloxi, Miss., is 8-4.
Quigley, 24, left Ireland for California a year ago to turn pro. He resides in Marina del Rey.
