By Chris McNulty in Los Angeles
Quigley weighed in at 164.4lbs ahead of a 10-round super-middleweight clash with Mexican Fernando Marin (16-4-3, 12KOs) at Hangar at the OC Fair, Costa Mesa.
Marin a late replacement for the bout, touched the scales at 162.2lbs.
Marin is filling the void left by Monday’s withdrawal of planned opponent Oscar Cortes.
“It’s about staying mentally and physically focussed,” Quigley said.
“I don’t fixate too much on an opponent. I just concentrate on my own game.”
For Quigley, it’s back to the scene of his early December stoppage of Abraham Cordero.
The Golden Boy Promotions contender halted Cordero three rounds into their bout for a win that got the Ballybofey man back to winning ways, following a July set-back and a defeat to Tureano Johnson at Fantasy Springs.
Quigley has recently got back into the top 15 of the WBC world middleweight rankings and is eyeing up some big bouts in 2020.
In the co-main event, Ferdinand ‘Lucky Boy’ Kerobyan (13-1, 8 KOs) of North Hollywood, Calif. will fight against Azael ‘Turbo’ Cosio (21-8-2, 18 KOs) of Santa Marta, Panama in an eight-round super welterweight bout.
Mihai Nistor (1-0, 1 KO) of Bucharest, Romania will battle Jaime ‘Zarco’ Solorio (12-3-2, 9 KOs) of Ensenada, Mexico in an eight-round heavyweight clash.
