Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin to attend Box Fan Expo

Former WBO world champion Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin has confirmed that he will appear at the Las Vegas Convention Center for the second annual Box Fan Expo that will take place Saturday Sept. 12. The Box Fan Expo will coincide with Floyd Mayweather Jr.’s last fight and Mexican Independence weekend.

Fight Highlights: Lee, Quillin trade knockdowns, box to split draw

After weighing in 0.6lbs overweight on his final attempt at Friday’s weigh in, Peter Quillin relinquished his shot to earn back the WBO Middleweight title he vacated last November.

The weight-cut didn’t seem to inhibit his performance early on, as he scored two knockdowns off of right hands in the first and third rounds, respectively. His timing was on key, and he was well ahead through the first half of his fight with Irishman Andy Lee.

Gutsy Andy Lee earns Draw against Peter Quillin

The magnificent Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York, USA, played host to the intriguing clash between WBO middleweight champion “Irish” Andy Lee and former, undefeated holder Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin. There was controversy at the weigh-in, as Quillin failed to make the weight and subsequently, Lee’s WBO belt wasn’t on the line.

The fight was aired as part of Premier Boxing Champions on NBC, and the bout while not fast paced, certainly contained drama. A lack of action, for periods, was countered by the intense nature of the affair.

World champion Andy Lee looking to defeat the undefeated Peter Quillin this Saturday

Irish ace Andy Lee says the ‘monkey is off his back’ now he is world champion, claiming his opponent Peter Quillin will be the one under the cosh this Saturday night.
The middleweight star, who won the WBO crown last December with a sensational sixth round stoppage of formidable Russian Matt Korobov, makes the first defence of his world title at the Barclays Center in New York, live and exclusive on BoxNation.
 
Taking on the former champion Quillin, who vacated the belt, 30-year-old Lee claims he goes into the fight under no pressure having finally fulfilled a lifelong ambition by becoming world champion, with him now putting it on the line in his opponents backyard.

“There’s been a huge weight lifted off my shoulders since winning the world title. It’s what I always wanted to do and I’ve been touted as a champion for years and if I never got it I would have been disappointed. Now the monkey is off my back and I can just box and show people who I am,” said Lee.
