Edgar Berlanga is celebrating his latest victory…
The 26-year-old Puerto Rican professional boxer and super middleweight contender knocked down Jason Quigley four times as he secured a unanimous points victory in New York on Saturday night.
The Donegal native frustrated Berlanga for long periods of the contest.
“I want to get to the level where my opponents want to knock me out as much as I want to knock them out,” Berlanga told DAZN after the fight.
Quigley was dropped for the first time at the end of the third round and was knocked down again in the fifth, although that appeared to be a trip.
The victory at Madison Square Garden saw Berlanga, who was coming off a 12-month lay-off, stretch his unbeaten record to 21 professional fights.
He had been been dealing with promotional issues on top of a six-month suspension from his last fight against Roamer Alexis Angulo in New York last June.
Berlanga was sanctioned for attempting to bite Roamer in the neck in the sixth round.
