ANDY Lee says a win over Shane Mosley Jr next month in Last Vegas will have Jason Quigley ‘knocking on the door’ of a world title tilt again.
Lee wants the Donegal contender to put on a show at the Michelob Ultra Arena.
Quigley, re-listed recently at number 14 in the WBC world rankings – and Mosley Jr square off for the NABO middleweight title live on DAZN.
“A good win against Mosley Jr will do wonders for his career and his confidence,” Lee said.
“He needs a break but he has to make the break, he has to win this fight and look good doing it.
“Get this win and collect the NABO title, then you’ve to defend it in so many days, do that and it’s two good wins.
“Two good wins against two solid opponents and he’s knocking on the door, that would be the plan.”
The bout will be on the undercard of Devin Haney’s WBC World lightweight title defence against Jorge Linares.
It will be Quigley’s first fight since a January 2020 stoppage of Fernando Marin and his meeting with Mosley is a case of third time lucky for his showdown with Mosley.
Former world champion Lee is also trainer heavyweight Joseph Parker, who faces Dereck Chisora in Manchester this weekend.
Quigley has been in the Parker camp recently to sharpen the tools.
Lee said: “Jason hasn’t fought in over a year, since January of 2020, so it’s more than a test coming off inactivity. Shane Mosley has been active.
“He has to beat this guy if he has serious intentions of doing anything in the sport. He has worked hard and has been very unfortunate with fights not happening and he deserves a break.”Tags:
