'I can still mix it with the best' - Andy Lee hoping Madison Square Garden return will lead to title shot
Andy Lee wants another world title and will begin his quest to get one against KeAndrae Leatherwood on the undercard of Gennady Golovkin's world title defence at Madison Square Garden on March 18.
Lee has not been seen in the ring since he lost his WBO belt to Billy Joe Saunders in December, 2015 but admitted that he never contemplated retirement.
The 32-year-old's want his bout with Leatherwood (19-3-1) to propel back into the frame for a possible fight against Golovkin or Daniel Jacobs next.
"It's a huge card, and fighting on the same card as these two guys puts me in view," Lee told Game On on 2FM.
"People can compare us and I'll have an eye on the winner and hopefully fight one of them later in the year.
"Not a whole lot. I saw a little clip of him on YouTube. He's got a good record and he can certainly fight.
"You don't win 19 professional fights and not know how to fight.
"It's not a gimme by any means but I know if I'm sharp and box the way I can, I can mix it with the best in the world.
"I'll be very confident going into the fight and just looking to get back in action on a huge stage and showcase my talents."
