Quillin, Schaefer Don’t Rule Out a Rosado Rematch

Middleweight titleholder Peter Quillin is OK with the idea of a rematch with Gabriel Rosado, whom he beat by 10th round technical knockout on Saturday in Atlantic City — though both the stoppage and the scorecards at the time weren’t without controversy.

The judges had Quillin ahead 90-80, 89-81 and 87-83 after nine rounds in a bout that seemed to be closer, and which definitely wasn’t a shutout. The fight ended due to a cut over Rosado’s left eye, a wound Rosado and his team felt wasn’t bad enough for a ringside physician doctor to call a halt to the bout.

Quillin was asked about a rematch at the post-fight press conference:

“Why not?” Quillin responded. “I’m not Richard Schaefer [of Golden Boy Promotions]. I’m not [adviser] Al Haymon. I’m not the matchmakers that make the fights. I’m not Showtime. My job is to go in the gym and prepare for the fights.”

And Schaefer said Quillin isn’t doesn’t have anything that would absolutely prevent a rematch, though that doesn’t necessarily mean a rematch will absolutely occur.

“I think it was definitely a fight which deserves a rematch, but I’ll have to see with Showtime and Peter’s team,” Schaefer said. “We did make some plans, but we have nothing locked in. I’m not saying yes. I’m not saying no. I’m saying, as a fan, I’d certainly like to see the fight again.”

[QUOTE=RVABoxer]I agree the cut was bad but it just seemed funny that they let it go and then stopped it a little into the 10th round, it hadn't started bleeding more and I don't even think he had gotten hit in the eye that round yet.[/QUOTE] Take a look at the round again, he got hit on the eye.

[QUOTE=RVABoxer]They don't matter when the fight gets stopped like that but IMO it was premature stoppage for a championship fight and the eye didn't seem to get any worse between the time when they first looked at it and when they stopped the fight, the lopsided scorecards just make everything l...
