Daniel Jacobs (31-1, 28 KO’s) and Peter Quillin (32-1-1, 23 KO’s) battled for Brooklyn last night inside of the Barclays Center in the final fight of the year for Showtime Championship Boxing. Jacobs, an slight underdog, needed only 85 seconds to dispose of the man they call “Kid Chocolate”.
Quillin was stuttering like a drunk after eating 27 punches, most of which were intended to finish him, in just under a minute and a half. The referee would take one look into the eyes of Quillin after he ate his final shot of the night, a right off the temple, before calling the fight.
“Who better can you lost to than a person that is fighting for a bigger reason than I could even imagine,” Quillin said about Jacobs, a bone cancer survivor, following the first loss of his professional career.
While Jacobs did say he’d grant “Kid Chocolate” an immediate rematch, a fight against WBO champion Andy Lee (should he defeated Billy Joe Saunders later this month in Manchester) or even a bout against multiple title holder Gennady Golovkin could be in the cards for the red-hot Jacobs next.
