Jason Quigley believes he is the man to hand a first career defeat to Demetrius Andrade when he challenges for the WBO world middleweight title on Friday 19 November in Manchester, New Hampshire.

Quigley (19-1, 14 KOs) heads to England at the weekend to continue his camp with former world champion and trainer Andy Lee before leaving for the US as the clock ticks down to his first world title fight.

The Donegal native will be the fifth opponent to try to take the belt from Andrade (30-0,18 KOs) and the second from Ireland after Luke Keeler's attempt in January 2020.

Quigley believes the timing is right for him to take the belt once owned by his trainer back home to Ireland, and says his fans will turn out in force in the States to roar him to victory.

"He (Andrade) needs fights, and the big guns are avoiding him," said the 30-year-old. "I’ll happily step in and bring that title back to Ireland.

"I’m at the perfect stage in my life and my career to deal with this situation. I’m not the young kid now living for the whole excitement of fighting for a world title.

"This is just another fight and I'm training my absolute ass off in the gym to get that W.

"I know that I can bring stuff to the table that is going to upset him, make him see things that he’s not always seen inside the ring.

"I honestly believe the Irish fans will outweigh his fans come fight night 100%."

Quigley’s clash with Andrade is one of four world title fights on the bill.

Murodjon Akhmadaliev (9-0 7 KOs) defends his IBF and WBA World Super Bantamweight titles against Ronny Rios (33-3 16 KOs) while it’s Mexico vs. Puerto Rico in the long-awaited showdown between WBC World Flyweight champion Julio Cesar Martinez (18-1 14 KOs) and McWilliams Arroyo (21-4 16 KOs).

The fourth title bout on the bill is the second step on the path to crowing an undisputed women’s champion at 140lbs as Kali Reis (18-7-1 5 KOs) takes on Jessica Camara (8-2) for the WBA, IBO and vacant WBO straps.
