Former undefeated world champion Peter Quillin is looking to become the champ agains when he takes on Danny Jacobs at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn Saturday night live on Showtime. The fight begins at 9pm EST. Here is what Quillin had to say about the upcoming championship fight:
"Distractions are in your head, but they can be a bit more here in New York. It's nice to get away to Miami and be able to concentrate on training and have everything right there. The buzz around Brooklyn is I am the new champ. I came to New York with a small city mindset but big city dreams and now they are all coming true. You can expect fireworks in the month of December. We're going to be throwing everything we can possibly throw. We've got a plan A, plan B, plan C, plan D, plan E, plan F. We are going to go to beyond, but most importantly I am very happy. I am spiritually happy and thankful. You fall out of fear and fall into faith and you can never deny yourself, so that's where I am right now."
Quillin (32-0-1, 23 KO's) vacated the WBO middleweight title last year. He's coming off a tough fight with veteran Andy Lee where they battled to a draw. Though Jacobs is the champion, Quillin is considered the better fighter of the two. That remains to be seen Saturday night.
