Jason Quigley will attend his first press conference as a professional boxer later this evening.

The Finn Valley world silver medalist is making his pro debut this weekend in an undercard four rounder against Howard Reece at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

The young Donegal fighter has been buzzing all week ahead of the fight and has been enjoying every part of the build up to the headliner between Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara.

On Wednesday evening Jason took to the ring as Golden Boy Promotions held an open workout for the fighters at the MGM grand in front of the US press while Friday will be weigh-in day.
