Boxing fans will get another look at “Kid Chocolate,” Peter Quillin, (28-0, 20 KO) on Saturday night when he defends his WBO middleweight title for the first time against Dominican-American southpaw Fernando Guerrero (25-1, 19 KO).
The jury is still out whether Quillin is a legitimate threat to the lineal title at 160 pounds.
Not many experts would consider him on the same level as Sergio Martinez or Gennady Golovkin, but nevertheless, he holds one of the prominent championships in the weight class.
To his credit, he generally puts on an exciting show.
As part of the undercard on the Zab Judah-Danny Garcia lightweight championship bout, Quillin will attempt to entertain the Brooklyn crowd at the Barclays Center before the featured attraction.
This fight was supposed to happen in February, but it was postponed because the bout is married to the Garcia-Judah clash and Garcia was injured. Therefore, a postponement of the main event also delayed Quillin-Guerrero.
All are healthy and finally ready to get it on. Here’s how you can watch the night of fights.
When: Saturday, April 27, 9 p.m. ET
Where: Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y
