Hours before he is set to defend his NABF middleweight title, Jason Quigley has been announced as the official Ladbrokes Boxing Ambassador.
The initial deal, which is set to run for one year, will see Ladbrokes work closely with Quigley as the currently undefeated competitor works towards a possible World Championship bout in 2020.
Irish-born Quigley showed his appreciation to Ladbrokes for the deal, stating: “I was delighted when the Sport Endorse team told me Ladbrokes were going to support me with a brand ambassador role. It’s brilliant to have a brand like Ladbrokes behind me. I really appreciate their support as I get back in the ring to continue my quest in becoming World Champion.”
As part of the deal, Ladbrokes will have the ability to provide customers with weekly blogs and interviews with the middleweight champion, where he will share his views on big-time boxing fixtures.
Nicola McGeady, Ladbrokes spokesperson, conveyed the excitement surrounding the deal: “We’re thrilled that Jason is joining Ladbrokes. He has achieved so much and is one of the biggest prospects in the middle-weight division. We believe by signing him, he will help us grow and bring our brand to a new audience as we join him on his exciting journey in hopefully becoming a World Champion.”
Quigley, who won World Silver and European Gold in 2013 as an amateur, turned professional in 2014 and has since competed in and won all 16 of his bouts – 12 of which were via knock out.
Tonight, the Irishman will look to come out victorious for the 17th time in his professional career when he defends his middleweight belt against Tureano Johnson, someone who he has dubbed as his “biggest test to date”, in California.
