Quillin: If You Do Business With Al, Big Fights Happen

By Victor Salazar

New York, NY - Middleweight Peter Quillin (32-0-1, 23 KO’s) enters his fight on Saturday night with WBA champion Danny Jacobs (30-1, 27 KO’s) as a very confident challenger. He knows the task in front of him and realizes Jacobs is no walk in the park.

“This guy that I’m fighting has the equal motivation to win the fight and equal tools,” Quillin said about Jacobs.

In terms of how long the fight goes at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Quillin says that’s up to Jacobs.

“It’s his choice,” Jacobs said to BoxingScene.com. “I fought against a guy that kept getting up when I knocked him down. I even knocked him down twice in the twelfth. I get paid for 12 rounds. Once I get out that ring I’m looking for my check. So if I can get paid for 12 and get him out sooner, then that’s cool too.”

Quillin knows if he is to be victorious, the questions of fighting Gennady Golovkin will arise once again. He feels the fight has to be so big that it has to happen.

“The politics has to be so grand for that to happen,” Quillin stated. “I get so frustrated about things. Like have you ever had a gun pointed at you? That’s something to be scared of. I had that happened to me a few times. What’s fighting another man and getting a check going to scare me? I think the fight got to be worth so much money like Floyd-Pacquiao. He (Mayweather) walked out with like 280 million dollars plus more.”

According to Quillin, HBO and the fighters who compete on their network have to be willing to do business with powerful manager/adviser Al Haymon in order to make the big fights happen.

“They got to want to do business with Al Haymon [to make the big fights happen]. That’s all it comes down to. How many fighters have you heard talk bad about Al Haymon? Al treats his fighters wonderful. They got to be willing to deal with Al. Al’s a genius when it comes to doing what’s best for his fighter. You got to deal with so much stuff already at the gym that you don’t need to worry about your financial future.”

All the skinny harlem pimp is doing is taking advantage of these dumb boxers with no education and no guidance or common sense and using these dim wits kids as plantation field hands working for the pimp skinny Al harlem…

If he gets 1.5 million to fight Jacobs who's never beaten a top 10 opponent, how much would he want for GGG? 3-5 mill? And that means GGG would have to make at least the same. Fight will never happen.…

[QUOTE=bojangles1987;16298464]Neither guy has ever beaten anyone to suggest that and you know it. Jacobs has never beaten anyone even a little bit relevant.[/QUOTE] Lee knocked out Korobov and drew Quillin. Jacobs doesn't have anyone great, Ishe Smith and Sergio Mora…

If you go with Al Haymon, If everyone goes with Al Haymon that might happen lol... We will see if Quillin/Jacobs are true about that statement because we know who they should be targetting.

[QUOTE=Eastcoast;16298478]Golovkin signed to fight Lee as a stay busy fight, in fact I bet if we look we can find you posting some of your usual hate dribble about it. What's Jacobs done in his career? Beat Fletcher & Truax?…
