Jason Quigley says there is a ‘high possibility’ he could be the man to face Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez next

Canelo is due to return to the ring in September

But the star, who is part of the same Golden Boy promotions stable as the four-weight world champ Canelo, believes it could be him heading for war in September.

Quigley told Sky Sports: “Turning professional on July 12, on the MGM Grand, Las Vegas, on the Canelo-Lara undercard, and now look at us.

“A few years on and I’m possibly going to be fighting Canelo Alvarez. It’s been a crazy career for me.

“It’s been an enjoyable one, there’s been a lot of ups and downs.

“But it’s a high possibility now.

“Golden Boy and my Sheer Sports Management team have been in touch with me.

“They have offered me the fight, to fight Canelo Alvarez, and it’s all there.”

Quigley continued: “We’re just waiting now for the possibility.

“Of course, there’s other boxers that could possibly be getting the fight as well.”

Quigley recorded the 18th win of his career at the start of 2020 with a third round knockout of Fernando Marin.

And he would love to challenge himself against one of the greatest of all-time in Canelo.

He added: “I have been asked, ‘would I take the fight?’ 100 per cent, I said ‘yes.’

“I want to get in with the best in the world.

“Canelo Alvarez is the best out there at the minute, he’s the face of boxing, and I want to get in there and I want to see how good he really is, and give him everything I’ve got, if it all comes off.

“I’ve been hearing all those names that are put in front of him, but week by week and day by day, it looks like these names are thinning down lower and lower.

“Out there at the minute, it’s looking like myself or Ryder that could be high potential possibilities for that fight.”
