Peter Quillin’s Next Return Being Eyed For October Date


By Francisco Salazar –

Looks like middleweight world title holder Peter Quillin will return to the ring sometime in October, Golden Boy Promotions matchmaker Eric Gomez told on Saturday evening.

Quillin will appear on a card that Golden Boy Promotions is looking to schedule at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The venue has been the site of his last two fights.

No word yet on whom Quillin would face, but Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer recently mentioned to BoxingScene that Danny Jacobs is a possible opponent for Quillin in the near future.

In his last bout on April 27th, Quillin stopped Fernando Guerrero in the seventh round in the first defense of his world title belt. Quillin dropped Guerrero twice in the second and twice in the seventh rounds before the fight was stopped.

Quillin (29-0, 21 KOs) won the title belt on October 20th, dropping Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam five times in route to an action-filled 12 round unanimous decision victory.

Quillin who turned 30 years of age this past Saturday, resides in Brooklyn and has trained at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, CA.–67025
