Sergio Mora Pushing To Land Peter Quillin on Oct. 26th

New York, NY - With undefeated IBF middleweight champion Peter Quillin still in search of an opponent for his upcoming title defense October 26 in Atlantic City, former WBC junior middleweight champion and current world-rated middleweight contender Sergio Mora says that he would be honored to step in to face the champ.

"Peter Quillin is a really strong, big, and avoided middleweight champion.  He is annihilating everyone that he steps in against and because of that, not many people are jumping at the chance to face him.  I have never been afraid to face any fighter in my entire career though and the same goes for Peter," stated Mora.

Mora continued, "His style reminds me a lot of the late great Vernon Forrest, so I would be very familiar with the task at hand and would love the opportunity to take on that challenge.  Being able to return to the network where I had the biggest win of my entire career, to take on another highly regarded world champion, would truly be an absolute honor."

"The Latin Snake" (24-3-2, 7KO's), the original Contender Champion is coming off a unanimous 10-round decision victory over Grzegorz Proksa on ESPN's Friday Night Fights on June 28 of this year.  Mora is currently rated #7 by the WBA and #14 by the IBF.

The brash and colorful Mora reached the high point of his career when he won the WBC light middleweight championship with a gutsy upset 12-round majority decision over the late great Vernon Forrest in 2008.

Mora's past few fights have been pretty entertaining. Time to forgive.

Sergio wants a payday real real bad. Damn. First Golovkin now Quillin. Hope it's worth the pummeling. Always respected Sergio but I question this. These guys are primed right now. He's probably feeling like Rocky.
