"I want to build momentum," said Jason Quigley."I fought at the start of December and got a good win. Now, I'm right back in mix. That's exactly what I want, and exactly what I need. It's all about building momentum now. I need to get in again, keep it fresh, and get out of there ASAP to keep the ball rolling. It's an exciting time. What's important now in 2020 is driving on and achieving what I want to achieve. My aim and my goal are to become a world champion. I'm excited for what's to come."

Cortes is a 26-year-old native of Zapopan, Mexico who has taken on the likes of Hugo "The Boss" Centeno Jr .and Alejandro "Zorrito" Barrera. The former holder of two youth titles will look to put a screeching halt to Quigley's momentum on January 23.
 
"I've been in the ring for as long as I can remember," said Oscar Cortes. "I have faced my share of tough opponents in there, and Quigley is no different. He is a big challenge for me at this point of my career, but I am ready to prove myself and my family above all that I belong with the top guys of the sport.I want to thank Golden Boy and DAZN for allowing me the opportunity to beat a top fighter on international TV."
