DiBella: Lee V Quillin will be explosive

ALTHOUGH he favours Irish hero Andy Lee to win Lou DiBella stresses the only thing you can be certain off when the Limerick man trades leather with Peter Quillin on April 11 is excitement.

Lee puts his WBO World title on the line against Quillin, the fighter that vacated the strap that Lee defeated Matt Korobov to claim, at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn and it is a fight that excited DiBella..

Indeed, the New York based promoter claims the clash will be ‘explosive’.

“This is two guys at the top of their game. Peter is a tough guy and a legitimate champion caliber fighter. Andy’s punching power has been extraordinary of late, Adam Booth has done a great job with him. I can see that fight being explosive. No way is it going to be anything but exciting. It is a great fight and I have  to pick my guy to win,” he said.

Considering the bout will be broadcast on terrestrial TV via NBC an explosive encounter would be sensational for Lee’s profile and increase his chances of further high profile bouts.

“This was the biggest fight available for Andy and its a huge night for him. I am excited he is getting to showcase his talents on NBC,” Di Bella added.
