Peter Quillin returns on September 12 against ridiculous opponent

Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (31-0-1, 22 KOs) will return in a 12-round middleweight bout against Michael Zerafa (17-1, 9 KOs), a completely ridiculous fight especially considering that it’s a headline fight on network television. Quillin is biding time until a fight with Daniel Jacobs, and we’re left with an utter joke of a fight. Sorry, Zefara, this is less about you than...

Andy Lee vs. Peter Quillin preview & prediction

There are some fighters  for which the dreaded “ducking” argument is easily dismissed. Does Wladimir Klitchsko duck tougher opponents and focus on a glut of secondary, tertiary, and quaternary (it’s a word) opponents? Well, no.
