Ishe Smith Eager: I Want To Prove Quillin is a Fraud!

By Phil D. Jay

Reinvigorated light-middleweight Ishe Smith has told WBN that there has been no contact regarding a possible bout with Peter Quillin on the Saul Alvarez undercard on September 15, although the former Contender star would be willing to consider it.

Smith, 33, scored an impressive fourth round stoppage win over Ayi Bruce in May after hooking up with Mayweather Promotions and is looking to concentrate on a run at 154 after a short and unsuccessful run at 160lbs.

The American is open to breaking from his immediate goal to face the undefeated Quillin as the two have taken genuine dislike to each other following months of mud-slinging and a fight in the future seems inevitable.

“Qullin wouldn't fight me if he had an extra arm and God blessed him with a third eye,” Smith snapped.

“The guy is obsessed with me, he constantly hits me up on Twitter talking shit and running his mouth.

“It's like this, if you’re not going to tell Al (Haymon, Quillin’s manager) or Golden Boy to make the fight, then stop hitting me up and pump faking the fans.”

There is obviously no love lost between the two fighters and Smith has a burning desire to end the feud if Quillin wants to accept the fight, with Canelo’s date of September 15 a possible stage for the contest.

“I honestly don't like the guy, that's just how I feel,” Emphasized Smith. “If I had the opportunity I would beat the dog sh*t out of him.

“Everyone knows that I am back at 154lbs, that's something my team knows and I have relayed that message to Leonard Ellerbe and Floyd Mayweather. But Qullin is the only middleweight I would fight at the moment, that's how much I can't stand the guy. I am willing to go back up to middleweight to prove to the fans he is a fraud.”

At the moment, Quillin is being positioned for a ring return on September 8th as the HBO co-feature to the welterweight clash between Devon Alexander and Randall Bailey.

I don't think it's too often that you have two fighters that genuinely dislike/hate each other the way these guys do. It would make for a nice build-up. I'd like to see them go at it.

I like Ishe, but if he fights Quillin he'll lose. It's not that he doesn't have the skill to beat Quillin, it's just that he seems to not show up in those fights that will really get his name out…
