WBO middleweight champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (28-0, 20 KOs) puts his title belt and unbeaten record on the line against Fernando Guerrero (25-1, 19 KOs) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on April 27.
Quillin was originally scheduled to defend against Guerrero on February 9, however, the entire show was postponed due to an injury suffered by headliner Danny Garcia.
Fighting once again on Showtime Championship Boxing, Quillin vs. Guerrero could steal the thunder from Garcia and his challenger, Zab Judah, as Quillin did last October at the same venue against previously undefeated Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, who was floored six times and eventually lost a 12-round decision (115-107, 115-107, 115-107).
The powerful Quillin, who now lives in New York City (Manhattan) but trains for fights in Los Angeles, returns home to fight again in Brooklyn where he lived for several years. "I’m fortunate to have my fight shown around the world through Showtime and to be going back to fight in New York City where I built my name," Quillin said. "There’s not too much else in my thought process other than working hard to defend my title belt. Everyone will see me at my best on April 27th because every camp is about getting better.
"I love to challenge myself. I look in the mirror and honestly believe nobody can beat me. I still have a lot to improve, though, and I’ve gotten this far fighting through a lot of BS. I take what I do very seriously and anybody can see just that by watching what I put myself through at the gym."
