Latest Press Release dated November 13, 2011: Off his impressive performance last weekend in Cancun, dismantling
Scottish southpaw Craig McEwan (19-2, 10 KOs) live on HBO en route to a
sixth-round stoppage, unbeaten defeated middleweight contender Peter "Kid
Chocolate" Quillin (26-0, 20 KOs) has arguably established himself as the No. 1
"I agree," the 28-year-old Quillin said about being the top 160-pounder in the
US. "I think I proved that against McEwan. I'll fight any of the top
middleweights from this country. I'm also one of the best middleweights in the
world. I may not be ready to fight Sergio Martinez right now but, after one or
two more fights against top 10 opponents, I'll be ready to fight him for the
world title. I want a world title fight in the United States, Las Vegas or New
York City, and all the other world champions only seem to want to fight in their
own backyards (WBA's Russian Dimitry Pirog, WBC's Mexican Julio Cedar Chavez
Jr., IBF's Aussie Daniel Geale and WBA's German Felix Sturm.) I will keep
working hard to get better."
The bi-coastal Quillin, who lives in Los Angeles and New York City, embraced his
first opportunity fighting on HBO, displaying a much improved left hook to go
with his vaunted athleticism and powerful right hand.
"McEwan showed some technical flaws in his game against Andy Lee," Quillin
noted, "I worked on my left; check-hook off my jab, and rocked him. I'm always
accurate but wish that I'd thrown more punches, like I usually do. I would have
liked to have gone to his body more with my right, but I knew from the first
round on my hook would work every time."
Quillin, presently rated No. 7 by the World Boxing Association, felt somewhat
robbed of a sensational knockout when referee Manolo Alcocer controversially
halted the action. "It's boxing and there's always a chance," Petey remarked,
"but I understand why the referee stopped the fight at that point. I saw some
shots open up and wanted a knockout, but the ref was just doing his job, caring
for McEwan's safety. Hey, that's why I'm a fighter, and he's a referee. I never
want my opponent to be seriously hurt."
So, Qullin will take off a few days and then go back to the gym, waiting to hear
about his next fight. "I'm my own worst critic," Quillin concluded. "I watch my
fights like I'm another fighter watching me in order to see where I need to
improve. I hope to be back in action early next year, but I'll leave that up to
Golden Boy Promotions, my manager John Seip, and trainers Freddie Roach and Eric
Brown. We're a team."
