BOXERS James and Grant Quigley put their training for Friday’s Greenock fight night on hold to help two junior fighters ahead of their own showdown this weekend.

The Port Glasgow Victoria professionals will compete on the same bill at the Town Hall tomorrow night but took some time out from their preparations to pass on their wisdom and wish the best of luck to young club members Grace Lynch and Lewis Miller, who will take part in the Novice Championships the next day.

The amateur duo will contest the final of their respective weight classes at Ravenscraig Regional Sports Facility in Motherwell on Saturday.

But before that, unbeaten brothers James and Grant will be compete against tough opponents in Greenock Town Hall tomorrow night along with Greenock’s Sam Ball, who also has a perfect pro record, and the Port’s Derek Herron.

Cruiserweight James will take on Jevgenijs Andrejevs from Latvia — a very experienced fighter who has boxed all over the world and against some big names like current WBC world champion Tony Bellew and Scotland’s Stephen Simmons, taking both of them the distance.

Port Victoria coach Kenny Crighton said: “This will be a hard test for James.

“Grant’s opponent, Remigijus Ziausys from Lithuania, is also a very tough boxer and a very experienced pro.

“He has fought world class boxers like Dillian Whyte, Derek Chisora and Gary Cornish, going the distance with all of them.

“So he will be tough to break down.

“Both Grant and James can’t wait for Friday night to get boxing.”

This weekend’s action will round off a busy time of late for the Port club.

Last week Calum Simpson boxed well in Fort William to win his first fight on points and ran his opponent close in his second bout when he was narrowly beaten on the scorecard.

Meanwhile, Mick Holmes was in action in Linwood and also secured a solid victory.
