Quillin: It Was Important To Get in There and Break Love's Spirit

Uniondale, New York - The co-main event on FOX saw former middleweight world champion Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin (34-1-1, 23 KOs) earn a unanimous decision victory over J'Leon Love (24-2-1, 13 KOs) after 10 rounds of super middleweight action.
 
"It was very important for me to go up in there and break his spirit," said Quillin. "I established my will in there, but I'll wait to judge how I looked until I see the tape."
 
Quillin's power and punch output proved to be the difference as he focused on getting into range of Love while delivering power punches to back Love up. With his promoter, all-time great Floyd Mayweather, sitting ringside, Love focused on a strategy that saw him move throughout the 10 rounds while trying to build his offense off of his jab.

"Sometimes you don't have your best night, but I'm far from done," said Love. "I have a lot of good fights left in front of me. I will be back. I could have pressed a little bit more, but he's a puncher. I wasn't trying to turn it into a brawl. I went at him and then slid right out. That was the game plan."
 
Round eight began with Quillin on the offensive as he pinned Love in the corner and unloaded a massive series of shots, many of which landed flush. Love was able to avoid any serious danger from the onslaught, but was never able to land anything that bothered Quillin over the remaining moments of the fight.
 
The judges scored the bout 99-91 and 98-92 twice, all in favor of Quillin.
 
"For people who think that I had ring rust, we've been in the gym training hard to be ready for a challenge like this," said Quillin. "We're going to build from this and use it from a foundation. Only time will tell what comes next, but we'll use this as a measuring stick."

I've never been impressed with Love. He seems timid in the ring and his resume is filled with alot of less than stellar talent. I think Porky Medina exposed him and I think he was hesitant last night because Kid…

Someone needs to ask Love how in the hell does he think he won the fight. Did you see the look on his face after the decision was read? Too funny.
