Jason Quigley easily maintained his unbeaten record beating Fernando Najara at StubHub Center in Los Angeles.

Fighting on the undercard of the Shawn Porter versus Kell Brook world title fight, the middleweight contest lasted just three rounds as Quigley took the contest on a TKO decision.

The former world amateur silver medallist peppered his Mexican opponent with some great right hands and powerful body shots throughout the opening exchanges and the contest was called to a halt as Najera remained on his stool at the bell for the fourth round.

Saturday night’s victory moves Quigley’s record to two from two (2-0-0) as his fledgling professional career is starting to take shape under the tutelage of the world famous Oscar de la Hoya Golden Boy stables.
