Garcia-Peterson, Lee-Quillin: Breadman's Breakdown

By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

The Danny Garcia vs. Lamont Peterson fight is one that hardcore fans have wanted for some time now. Everybody seems really excited for this one. Although Danny Garcia does not have a glossy KO percentage, I think he is one of the biggest punchers in boxing. Garcia is one of the best fighters I have ever seen at punching with an opponent. He actually gives up some defense just to hit you while you are hitting him. He has been able to get away with it because he has an iron chin and a clutch gene to come through in tight spots.

Lamont Peterson is a crafty all around fighter who can do everything well. His strongest suit is his in-fighting and body punching. But if he chooses this route against Garcia it could spell trouble. I think Peterson would do better using a jab and quelling the action of the fight. Peterson looks, confident and motivated and I think he will do well. But I don't know if that will be enough to win. Peterson has sort of a cold chin where he goes down early but after he heats up his chin holds up better. I can see Garcia visibly hurting him and winning the rounds he wins a little cleaner.

Peterson has a habit of ear muffing and drawing his hook back. He may be looked at as he faster fighter but I think Garcia is quicker as far as making up his mind when he wants to punch. Peterson should never hook with Garcia. The pick here in a tight fight is Garcia by a point or two.

Andy Lee has a good chance to beat Peter Quillin. Quillin has been inactive and Lee is riding high. Lee also has much more amateur pedigree. Quillin may need some time to figure out the longer southpaw in Lee.

But Quillin is 32-0 for a reason. Quillin has loads of guts and he never stops trying. If he gets back that animal look he had in his eye for Hassan N'dam and Fernando Guerrero - I think he will be a little bit too much for Lee. I can't get out of my head that Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. stopped Lee in six rounds. Chavez is really not that impressive to me and he has never stopped a world class fighter besides Andy Lee.

Quillin is not a cutie where he will take an opponent's best weapon away. Andy Lee has a great right hook. I think Quillin will simply not engage as often to keep from getting hit with it. Quillin has a great right hand, clean up-hook combination in his own right and I think it will carry the day. I don't believe this fight will be action packed although both are big punchers. I see lots of probing and an intense chess match. I say Quillin knocks Lee down at least once and wins a tight controversial decision.

[QUOTE=rasdun;15553934]Breadman is great at breaking down fights. Just over the past year or so, I remember him picking Algieri over Provodnikov (as a 5-1 dog), Cotto over Martinez (as a 2-1 dog) and countless others. The guy is usually money…

I think Bscene is a bigger platform for Breadman than Boxing-talk. Good to see him here! Boxing-talk was Greg Leon's project, but it's pretty much neglected these days as Greg makes money as advisor. Breadman is pretty much the only…
