You can count Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin among those who were impressed by the Floyd Mayweather-Marcos Maidana fight that took place this past Saturday in Las Vegas. Maidana, who was as high as a 15-1 underdog, took the fight to the undefeated pound-for-pound king and performed so well that there is talk of an immediate rematch in September.

Quillin, who grew up in Mayweather's hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., said that he was happy that he was able to be in attendance for such a historic fight.

"This was an awesome performance. We saw Mayweather in a lot of rough moments but most importantly it was a great fight that fans want to see again and again and again. Hopefully it does happen (again) and I am glad that I was out here in attendance to see a guy from Grand Rapids, Michigan perform at this level. It was very inspirational to me," said Quillin.

When asked if he was surprised by the way the fight turned out, Quillin said that you never know what will happen until the fighters step in the ring.

"You can never be surprised at what a fight can bring. It was like a scary movie man. You were on the edge of your seat. It was phenomenal to watch," Quillin stated.

Kid Chocolate last fought on April 19th when he successfully defended his WBO middleweight title against Lukas Konecny in Washington DC. Most of the bigger names in the middleweight division fight on HBO while Quillin fights on Showtime.
The 30-year-old Quillin declined to call any names out and said that he believes that Golden Boy and Showtime will build someone up to be a future opponent. He said that he tries to stay away from calling out fighters and that he concentrates on doing his work in the gym and staying in shape.

"I think they are going to groom me somebody. I don't really go too much into detail. Like if I tell people that I want to fight anybody and these fights don't happen for whatever reason, why don't people just respect the business that is at hand. I am a fighter man. I am trying to learn how to be a businessman. I think my job is just to be in the gym at all times and be in the best possible shape. I look good right now and I just came off a fight two weeks ago. I am ready to go tonight if they told me to go," Quillin stated.

Quillin had a very short amateur career and feels that he hasn't reached his peak and that the best is yet to come. He said that he will continue to work hard in order to fulfill his potential.

"As far as what I am able to do, the sky is the limit. I have 46 total fights period. That is amateur and professional. 31 professional fights and only 15 amateur fights. So what I am doing is unheard of, I am just working towards everything that God is providing for me," Quillin told

[QUOTE=Box-Office]Oh being on big cards is not a problem for him especially with his style and connections, but it is to perform against half decent opponents. Yeah, the winner should get a shot.[/QUOTE] I'm not in favor of the winner fighting quillin. Would rather see Jacobs

[QUOTE=Box-Office] He can still lay out Quillin though lol.[/QUOTE] I love Lemieux, but Kid Chocolate is his worst nightmare. He's elusive enough to frustrate Lemieux and never let him plant his feet for the big shots. He will box the hell out of him and wear him down with activity rate. ...

He make boxing really sound like a business instead of a sport with that grooming crap. Sound like the dog show off of Animal Planet.

[QUOTE=Hougigo]I feel like they're building him up for that. Dude's fighting on showtime against a common opponent. Could be coincidental since he's Canadian on a Canadian card. But Guerrero and others have said the winner will most likely get a title shot[/QUOTE] Oh being on big cards is not a ...

[QUOTE=Box-Office]Lemiuex being from Canada I have followed him closely and I am telling you he sucks. I hate to be so blunt, but if you survive the early storm for about 4-5 rounds then any decent boxer can just pick him apart. Joachim Alcine and Rubio are nothing big and they ruined him. Nothin...
