As BoxingScene.com previously reported, middleweight contender Jason Quigley has hired former world champion Andy Lee as his new head trainer.
Back in July, Quigley (16-1) took a bad beating in suffering his first career defeat at the hands of veteran Tureano Johnson.
Quigley, who is promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, expects to return to the ring on a date in December.
"I'll be back in early December, back over in California, getting the ball rolling and getting a good victory under my belt," Quigley said.
Quigley sees the move to Lee as being a very positive one for his pro career.
"It was a weird type of fight for me with Johnson, I knew it was my biggest test to date, obviously I trained hard and prepared right, there was just something not right," 'El Animal' recalled to Sky Sports.
"I was maybe a bit mentally burned out from the boxing side of things, being in Sheffield kind of killed me. Now I'm back in Dublin closer to home, working with Andy Lee, I have that nice balance. With Andy, the spark is back and I'm born again. He's young, fresh and only retired a few years ago, he has the same spark to succeed, we gel and want to make something special.
"The defeat was difficult and hard to take, but I was surprised at how well I dealt with it. I was probably two fights away from a world title shot whereas now I'm probably three or four away, these setbacks happen."
In his return bout, the once-beaten boxer is hoping to face someone with a pulse. He does not want to face an opponent who gets blown away in a round or two.
"I don't want an opponent who I'll bang out in a few rounds, I want someone experienced that can test me. I want to be able to work on things. I'm still with Golden Boy and am delighted to be with such a great promotional team. I've got big hopes and title ambitions for 2020," Quigley said.
"A lot of the middle and super-middleweights - 'Canelo', Andrade, 'GGG', Smith, Saunders, Jacobs - are all in and around the same TV and promotional outfits, so these big fights can and will get made."
