Donegal boxer Jason Quigley is going for gold.
The powerhouse from Ballybofey put in a super performance to beat Russian Chebotarev in this morning’s semi-final of the World Championships.
Quigley had to be in top form to overcome the highly-rated Russian.
But the Finn Valley boxer put in a series of powerful combinations in the third round to stamp his authority on the fight.
The Russian tried to respond but there was no stopping the 22 year old as he caught Chebotarev time and time again.
Not even the fact that Quigley was forced to take a questionable second round standing count could stop him.
The Donegal man eventually raised his hands when the referees returned their scores of 30-27, 30-27 and 29-28 all in favour of Quigley.
The final now awaits Jason as he dreams of repeating his gold-medal winning performance at the European Games and become World Champion.
Jason’s mum Muriel watched the fight at her workplace at said “I am so proud of Jason. He did so well again.”
Jason will now face Kazakhstan boxer Zhanibek Alimkhanuly after his semi-final opponent, Anthony Fowler from England, was forced to pull out with a hand injury.
All of Donegal and Ireland are behind you Jason.
