Former WBO middleweight world champion Andy Lee (35-3, 24 KOs), who soon turns 33 years old, is only looking to secure a big fight in the fall.
Back in March, Lee returned to the ring as part of the Gennady Golovkin vs. Daniel Jacobs card, and won a decision over KeAndrae Leatherwood. It was his first fight since losing the WBO title to Billy Joe Saunders in December 2015.
Lee is planning to fight again in the fall. He wants a big name or world title fight, and hopes to land the opportunity to eventually face the Canelo Alvarez vs. Golovkin winner at some point.
In a previous interview, Lee stated that he would like to end his career by some point in 2018. He's picking his next few fights with care and wants something with enough meaning to get those competitive juices flowing.
The Irish boxer warns that his next fight must have some meaning - or else he will never fight again.
"My intention was always to come back into the ring and not end my career on that note. I know I have a lot more left in me," Lee said to RTE.
"I was champion of the world. There's no reason why I can't improve and win it again. I'll wait and see who's on offer. I'm number five in the world so I'll be hoping to fight one of the champions.
"If my next fight isn't a big fight or a meaningful fight, then I won't fight again. I'm only in the game for significant fights. I don't have anything to prove. I've become world champion, I've achieved my dream.
"I don't need to fight for the money. I'm boxing because I love it not because I have to. If it turns out in September I don't have the hunger anymore, then I don't have to do it."
