Jason Quigley couldn’t do much as Demetrius Andrade successfully defended his WBO Middleweight Championship belt against the Ballybofey man.
The fight had been highly anticipated since Quigley won against Shane Mosley Jr. in May and called out Andrade.
Andrade, who is now 31-0 after tonights fight, was under pressure to knock Quigley out in order to gain attention to get himself a fight against one of the bigger names in the middleweight division.
Quigley was without coach Andy Lee in the corner as he was unable to travel.
Quigley was quickly knocked down in the first round after a right hook by Andrade.
A further two knockdowns in the second round caused the fight to be stopped after 2 minutes and 24 seconds in round 2 in Manchester, New Hampshire.
In front of a massive Irish crowd in New Hampshire, it would’ve been easily mistaken that this fight took place in Ireland as the fans were in full voice for Quigley.
However, Quigley is now 19-2 and it is unsure where he goes from this.
On the undercard, Galway boxer Thomas O’Toole extended his professional record to 2-0 after he got his second knockout in as many fights, knocking out Mark Malone in 25 seconds.
