Here is a recent quote from the Champion Daniel Jacobs about this particular fight. “First off, there are so many people to thank. I’d just like to thank everyone who has contributed to this amazing card that they’re putting together. This is going to be something that New York is going to remember for a long time. It’s no secret that I’ve wanted this fight for a long time. It’s no secret that Quillin has been on my radar and he’s been the guy that I feel like I need to get through to get to the next level. So I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity. I’d like to thank Peter Quillin for accepting the challenge and I know he’ll be more than ready come fight night.”

Who is Daniel Jacobs

DanielJacobsDaniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs, WBA Middleweight Champion – 30-1, 27 KOs. Born and raised in Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York. 137-7 as an amateur. Jacobs was a national Golden Gloves champ and a four-time New York Golden Gloves champ. Turned pro in 2007. He lost 19 months of his career between 2011-12 after being diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer that he beat like he’s beaten so many of his opponents. He’s now 8-0 in his comeback, including a TKO 5 victory over Jarrod Fletcher at Barclays Center when he won the world middleweight title. In his last bought on August 1 at Barclays Center he engaged former Jr. middleweight champ and top middleweight contender, Sergio Mora, in a two round crazy war before it got stopped in round 2 with Danny the victor. December 5 will be Daniel Jacobs fifth fight at Barclays Center and he’s looking to keep that belt around his waist and to maintain the dominance he has as Brooklyn’s world champion.

Who is Peter Quillin

peterQuillinPeter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin, the former middleweight champion of the world, undefeated 32-0-1 with 23 KOs. Turned pro in 2005. He has resided in Brooklyn since 2002. Beat Hassan N’Dam for his middleweight title at Barclays Center. Knocked him down six times to earn a unanimous decision. Defended the middleweight title three times between 13 and 14. He took the title off and a year off from boxing to support his wife at the birth of his son as well to grieve for his departed uncle. Returned April 11, 2015 at Barclays Center in what was a tremendous fight against WBO middleweight champion Irish Andy Lee in a back and forth knockdown filled brawl for 12 rounds that resulted in a draw. He’s coming off a brutal fifth round knockout in his last fight on September 12 and I know he’s ready and believes he’s going to return that belt to his waist and he’s going to be the man that controls Brooklyn.

Here is a recent pre-fight quote from the challenger Peter Quillin. “I want to give thanks to God for all the opportunities that I’m allowed to have. I want to lift all the blessings that he’s let me receive back up to Him, my Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. I want to thank SHOWTIME for allowing this fight to be aired on their telecast. Such hard workers there. I want to thank some of the lead people in the sport today. I want to thank Lou DiBella who I’ve known so many years and I’m very thankful to be back reunited with him, especially when he started a lot of parts in my career in the first part and now we’re at this point together.” Peter went on to say, “I want to thank Danny Jacobs for allowing me to have the opportunity to grace the ring with him. I want to thank Barclays Center as well for letting this fight be there and host this tremendous fight there. I want to thank all the people in Brooklyn who are big supporters – that not just of me, but as well as Danny Jacobs and all those who will be in attendance that night. I want to thank the whole boxing community for allowing this fight to be one of the fights they must watch – the fight they’d like to see.Jacobs-Quillin-430x244

This should be a action packed fight because both men are knockout artists. Quilllin had knockouts in 72% of his fights and Daniel Jacobs has a even better knockout rate at 90%. I think the key to the fight will be which fighter will have more heart knowing that the fighter that avoids the most power punches will last in the later rounds. I expect Peter Quillin to win the fight via 10th round knockout because I believe he has a better chin and he will land vicious right hands to the body of Jacobs. Quillin will leave the new WBA Middleweight Champion of the world.
