Quillin to Mull Over Jacobs Rematch, Moving to 168

by David P. Greisman

It hadn’t even been two hours since Peter Quillin had suffered a stunning first-round technical knockout loss to Daniel Jacobs. Quillin had accepted the defeat, but he couldn’t yet know what the implications would be on his future decisions.

Nevertheless, media members wanted to know — would he want a rematch with Daniel Jacobs? What about a move up to super middleweight?

Quillin acknowledged that any fighters would call for a rematch. Even a boxer who loses in less than half a round would want a second chance to prove that he can do better.

But he said he’ll want to talk with his family and his team first to figure out what is best. That kind of answer can sound like a cop out when a fighter has won. Yet when a fighter has lost, that response makes plenty of sense.

That also applies to moving to super middleweight. Quillin had failed to make the middleweight limit for a title bout with Andy Lee earlier this year. He came in at 160 for a fight with Michael Zerafa in September, though, and was 159 for Jacobs.

Going up to 168 is “something I really considered,” Quillin said. “I know there’s some big names up there. But at this moment right now I can say whatever sounds appetizing to the media, but I’m going to have to say I’ll have to sit down and come up logically with the best situation with the team that I have for the best situation for Peter Quillin.”

PETEY should rematch rosado since he went life and death with him or andy lee since he drew with him

quillin simply needs to create his own division between 160 and 168.

[QUOTE=PunchyPotorff;16303692]I have more respect for the guy than before the fight. It is interesting how the tables turn so fast in this sport. Let him take some time to make a smart decision... hopefully filled with more logic than bravado.…
