Quigley goes up against Mexican Abraham Cordero in an eight-round super middleweight contest at The Hangar in Costa Mesa on Thursday night.
Now working with former world champion Andy Lee, Quigley (16-1, 12KOs) touched the scales at 164.6lbs at the weigh in ahead of the bout.
“I’m feeling good and I’m feeling confident,” Quigley said.
“I got a good look at the opponent, stared him in the eyes. I’m ready for action and I mean business.”
Cordero (13-4-2, 7KOs) weighed in at 164lbs, but Quigley has warned that he’s got a different mindset this week.
He said: “We’ve been working on a few different things in the gym. Nothing major, but you’re going to see a different mindset, a few different tweaks in my technique. I’m going in there to do damage.”
A couple of months after he lost to Tureano Johnson at Fantasy Springs in July, Quigley linked up with Irish boxing icon Lee. Quigley can already feel the Impact.
He said: “It’s ben top class and every day has been a learning day with Andy. The relationship has just got better and better every single day. The preparation has been top class. I’m feeling really, really good and I’m ready for action.
“Everything has gone smooth with me and Andy. He’s been there, he’s done it, he’s been through the mill with ups and downs. He’s a pleasure to be around because he’s so calm, controlled and collected. It’s a dream team.”
