Former World amateur silver medallist Jason Quigley has made it seven wins on the spin in his professional boxing career in Los Angeles.

The Donegal native achieved a second-round knockout of Tom Howard. He dropped his American super-middleweight opponent twice in the second round before the referee stopped the fight.

The 24-year-old has now won all seven of his professional bouts by knockout or stoppage.

Twenty-three-year-old Howard, a native of Mississippi, had won eight of his previous eleven pro fights before challenging the Irishman but his career had stalled in recent months as he suffered back-to-back defeats.
