PORT boxer Grant Quigley has received a big boost ahead of his live TV debut tonight after landing two new sponsors.

The talented 22-year-old has teamed up with Greenock-based Nu Image Double Glazing and Gage Ecosse Joinery, of Gourock, in time for his fifth professional bout against Polish fighter Pawel Rafelski.

They join existing sponsor Falcon Scaffolding, which is run by Quigley’s long-term coach Kenny Crighton of Port Glasgow Victoria Boxing Club.

The boxer — nicknamed ‘The Tank’ — is aiming to make it five wins in a row at the Radisson Blu hotel in Glasgow city centre later in the St Andrew’s Sporting Club season opening show, which will be screened live on STV Glasgow from 9pm.

He is also looking to put on a show and make it a hat-trick of knockouts following on from TKO victories in each of his last two bouts.

Quigley said: “I’m really looking forward to it.

“I have an opponent from Poland who is supposedly really tough and durable.

“I’m looking for the win but it would be a bonus to knock him out and hopefully make it three in a row.

“My first two fights went the distance and my last two were knockouts — I’m going for the hat-trick.”

The six-round contest will be screened live on STV’s Glasgow and Edinburgh channels from 9pm tonight.

While Quigley is looking to maintain his perfect professional record, he is up against someone who is also unbeaten following a knockout victory in his debut fight 12 months ago.

The light heavyweight boxer — who is aiming to compete for a Scottish title in the near future — has extra motivation following his double sponsorship deal.

Quigley said: “It’s excellent to have two new sponsors and two well-known and respected local companies in my corner.

“It’s a big help especially with renewing my licence and medical costs which I have to pay for every year. I’m extremely grateful to them.”

Sponsor Scott Gage, owner of Gage Ecosse, is thrilled to be backing the Port boxer.

He said: “We would like to wish Grant all the best for the fight and the rest of the season.

“We’re delighted to sponsor local talent and give something back to the community.”

Billy McPherson, boss of Nu Image, is also proud to lend his support.

He said: “Grant’s a great prospect and he’s been doing really well since turning professional.

“We’re pleased to back local talent and we wish him well for the fight.”

Meanwhile, Greenock’s Sam Ball has been ruled out of tonight’s show.
