Jason Quigley and Glen Tapia meet in the premiere episode of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN.
Tonight at 10 pm ET on ESPN2, Golden Boy Promotions debut their new ESPN series with a middleweight main event, pitting prospect Jason Quigley against Glen Tapia in a 10-round fight.
Quigley (12-0, 10 KO) is a potential rising star in the division, an Irishman based in the United States who passed on possible amateur glory in order to turn pro a couple of years ago. He’s now starting to take on more substantial names, but there is a question of Tapia (23-3, 15 KO), at just 27, being shot or not. He’s lost two straight to Michel Soro and David Lemieux, both by TKO-4, and hasn’t won a fight since March 2015, when he beat Daniel Dawson.
Also on the card tonight will be former bantamweight titleholder Randy Caballero (23-0, 14 KO), as he looks to position himself for a possible super bantamweight title bout in the future. He’ll be facing Jesus Ruiz (36-7-5, 25 KO) in another 10-round fight.
Former U.S. Olympian and 2012 flyweight bronze medalist Marlen Esparza will be making her pro debut on this show, too. She’ll be facing Rachel Sazoff, a fighter with an 0-2 pro record.
