FROM STEVE BRENNER IN NEW YORK
ANDY LEE simply cannot lose.
The 30 year-old arrived in New York in the shape of his life and ready to mount a solid first defence of the title won so brilliantly in Las Vegas before Christmas.
And the Limerick warrior had a an unexpected spring in his step last night after Peter Quillin failed to make 160 pound weight forcing WBO officials to deem the bout a non-title fight.
Quillin, who had been out for a year, initially hit the scales at 161.9 and even though a rapier fast session on the treadmill saw him register 160.6 , it was not enough.
It was a bitter blow for the American yet what a boost for Lee.
