Jacobs: It looked like his equilibrium was off

Following his shocking first round TKO victory over Peter Quillin Saturday night at the Barclay's Center, middleweight champion Danny Jacobs felt that he knew something was off with Quillin.

"I hope he's okay," Jacobs said. "I was patient and when I came with an uppercut I knew I hurt him and that's when I went for the kill. I told him I love him. Me and Peter go back to the Golden Glove days. I respect him to death, but I knew this fight would be my night. There are no lucky shots in boxing. Obviously I caught him with a shot. Once I knew I had him hurt I kept going. I saw his eyes and it looked like his equilibrium was off. I'm not a referee, but if I was I probably would have still gave him another opportunity."

Jacobs, an underdog coming into the fight, retained the WBA middleweight championship with the victory making him one of the top guys in the middleweight division.
