An eye-catching mural of Jason Quigley has been unveiled in Ballybofey ahead of his world title fight against Demetrius Andrade.
The Donegal boxer faces the undefeated American for the WBO World Middleweight title in the early hours of Saturday morning as he aims to follow in the footsteps of his coach Andy Lee, who won the same belt in 2014..
The town of Ballybofey has teamed up Ladbrokes to create the mural, which is the work of local artist Kevin Gallagher and is a symbol of the unwavering national support for the fighter. It is located on Back Lane, just off Lower Main Street right in the heart of the town.
A large Irish contingent has jetted off to America for the bout, which takes place at the SNHU Arena in Manchester, New Hampshire, while many more will be cheering the 30-year-old on from home.
Ladbrokes ambassador Quigley is confident of pulling off a shock against the 30-0 champion and the betting firm report that punters have been backing the Irishman, who is 7/1 to win, ahead of the fight.
The highly anticipated fight is 11/8 to go the distance, while Quigley can be backed at 14/1 to win by knockout.
The former world amateur silver medallist, who has a professional record of 19 wins and one loss, is the second Irish boxer to face Boo Boo. The Rhode Island native defeated Dubliner Luke Keeler in a successful defence of his belt in January 2020.
Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: ” We wanted to let Jason know that the entire country is behind him this weekend.
“When we reached out to members of his local community to create this ‘symbol of support’ the response was huge.
“Jason has put everything into this title bid and he really does deserve to bring the title home to Ballybofey!”
