It won’t be welcome news to anybody complaining about a lack of meaningful fights from PBC, but former WBO 160 lb champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin will face the unheralded and little known Australian fighter Michael Zerafa on September 12th in Connecticut on a PBC on NBC card that will also feature unbeaten Jermell Charlo squaring off against IBF 154 lb champion Cornelius “K-9” Bundrage.
Quillin, who missed weight in his last fight – a draw against “Irish” Andy Lee in April, hasn’t been the most active of late, for various reasons fighting only 4x (inc. Lee) in the last 2 years, and is looking to set up a showdown with WBA (reg) 160 lb champ and fellow New Yorker Daniel Jacobs for early next year. Continue reading

Markus H. (Orlando, FL): You were pretty down on Gary Russell Jr. in the past. I wanted to know what were your thoughts about his recent performance and what do you see next for him?
Vivek W. (ESB): There was a point in which I just felt that Russell simply wasn’t showing any evolution. We knew he possessed great speed and a certain level of skill, but we never really saw it translate against the level of opposition good enough to bring all of it out. After seeing him coast to easy victories over guys who had no business in the ring with him, it simply got old. All that being said, just as he once warranted criticism, I think at this stage he clearly deserves praise! And a lot of it! Continue reading
In an exciting fight, WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee (34-2-1, 24 KOs) got up off the canvas twice to rally in the second half of the fight to salvage a 12 round majority draw against former WBO 160 pound champion Peter Quillin (31-0-1, 22 KOs). Lee knocked Quillin down in the 7th round with a right hook to the head. That knockdown negated one of Quillin’s earlier knockdowns. Continue reading
