**Editor's note: Quillin overweight on the scales, so no title on the line in Lee v Quillin**

LIMERICK'S ANDY LEE enters as a 9-4 underdog for the maiden defence of his WBO Middleweight crown against formidable undefeated ex-champ Peter Quillin at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York on Saturday.

Andy Lee

Nevertheless, boxing writer Glynn Evans' poll of a dozen key domestic players suggests the bookmakers might be about to get plundered in this BoxNation televised live broadcast!

Frank Warren (Hall of Fame promoter): I fancy Andy Lee by stoppage. I think his fabulous recent wins will hold him in good stead. Quillin has shown himself to be a good 'on top' fighter but no one's really put it on him yet. Andy Lee has the capability to do that.

I see Lee starting to get to him after about six rounds. He can stop anyone that he hits on the chin with that right hook.

Liam Williams (Commonwealth Light-Middleweight champion): I see Quillin winning on points. I like his style. He comes to fight and is good to watch. Lee was getting well beat in both his last two fights before picking the big shot.

Peter Quillin

Anthony Farnell (Manchester trainer): Lee wins a decisive points victory. He's the better fighter. When on form, he's very, very good. He's awkward and he can whack.

Quillin can punch a bit but I've not seen anything special from him yet. He'll make a fight of it but Lee will walk him into traps.

Barry Jones (ex-WBO Super-Featherweight champion): This has to be a cracking fight and I'm going with Andy Lee by stoppage in the upset of the year.

My initial thoughts were that Quillin would be too big and powerful but when things don't go entirely as he wants he's prone to sulking. He then gets wild and erratic.

Andy has to jump on him from the start and let him feel his power early, otherwise Quillin will capitalise on his long reach and bully him. I go with Lee but it's not a hugely confident pick.

Bradley Skeete (welterweight prospect): I've been sparring with Andy for ten days over in Monaco and he's really on it, really sharp. He's such a tall tricky southpaw who's very quick with his counters. He has that right hook off to a tee. He's such a good finisher.

All the momentum is with Andy and I expect him to do the business. He's beaten the better fighters. John Jackson and Matt Korobov were both unbeaten but Andy came from behind to stop them and I expect something similar against Quillin.

Andy Lee

Lewis Pettitt (world ranked super-bantamweight): I definitely want Andy Lee to win because he's such a nice man and it'll pave the way for a huge outdoor show at West Ham against Billy Joe in the summer.

Quillin's not really been tested and I sense he doesn't take a shot too well. Though 'Chocolate' is fighting at home, Andy's no stranger to New York. The Irish will be out in force.

Quillin has limited amateur experience whereas Lee won stacks of important medals and was an Olympian. Andy has the better skills and that'll be the difference.

Enzo Maccarinelli (ex-WBO Cruiserweight champion): I see Andy Lee following a great game plan from Adam Booth to win on points.

He can use his southpaw stance to his advantage and box smart for the 12 rounds. I don't think Quillin is the beast people make him out to be.

Liam Smith (British Light-Middleweight champion): I think Peter Quillin will hit too hard for Andy. I saw a lot of 'Chocolate' (Quillin) sparring with our Paul and Callum at the Wild Card Gym and that big right hand is the perfect shot against a southpaw.

I hope Andy wins but see him getting stopped between rounds five and eight.

Gary Lockett (ex-world middleweight challenger): It's a 'pick 'em' fight. Quillin is a decent enough boxer and puncher but I don't think he's as good as some make him out to be. He's very wild and reckless when he commits and Lee has shown that he can take out anyone he hits clean on the chin with that southpaw right hook.

Andy might have to come from behind again. It'll be a really impressive win if he can pull it off.

Andy Lee

Steve Collins (ex-two weight world champion): I think it'll be a case of who lands the big shot first. They're both capable of beating the other.

Quillin is smooth, quick and mobile. But Andy's come through the hard way and I doubt 'Chocolate' brings anything he'll not have seen before.

Becoming world champion after a few setbacks will make Andy a better fighter. He's so big at the weight. He needs to jump on Quillin early and make the ring as small as possible. Pushed, I fancy Lee inside distance.

Michael Jennings (former world welterweight challenger): I go with Peter Quillin to win, probably by stoppage. He's the more rounded fighter; can do a bit of everything. Andy can be out-boxed but you can't write him off.

He's found those sweet punches at top level. He'll be dangerous for however long the fight lasts.

Derry Mathews (WBA World Lightweight challenger): I'm with Andy Lee by very late stoppage; rounds eleven or twelve. He's flying at the minute with two great stoppages and becoming world champion will have caused his confidence to shoot up.

The prospect of a massive stadium fight with Billy Joe will really excite and motivate him. I can't see him letting that slip against Quillin.

FINAL SCORE: ANDY LEE 9 PETER QUILLIN 3
