Quillin-Zerafa, K9-Charlo Double on 9/12, Foxwoods

By Carlos Boogs reported several days ago that Peter Quillin's return was going to be moved from September 6th to September 12th - as part of a televised Premier Boxing Champions on NBC doubleheader with Cornelius 'K9' Bundradge (34-5, 19KOs) defending his IBF junior middleweight crown against mandatory challenger Jermell Charlo (21-0, 16KOs).

The opponent for Quillin (31-0-1, 22KOs) has been revealed. Foxwoods President/CEO Felix Rappaport appeared on SiriusXM's 'At the Fights' radio show and says the 9/12 PBC event is heading to the Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut with Quillin facing Australia's Michael Zerafa (17-1, 9KOs), who's sole defeat came last October by decision to Arif Magomedov.

September 12th will be a busy day for fight fans. From what BoxingScene understands, the PBC on NBC doubleheader will begin the day's televised festivities, and following that card is a Showtime televised pre-pay-per-view event with Ishe Smith facing Vanes Martirosyan in the headliner. Following the conclusion of Smith-Vanes, the Showtime Pay-Per-View will begin with Floyd Mayweather taking Andre Berto in the main event.

[QUOTE=el malo;15949569]At least these mismatches are free unlike hbo's matches at $15 per month, $180 per year. Well I guess GGG VS Monroe and Kovalev vs Mohammedi were worth it :lol1:[/QUOTE] I don't pay $15/month to watch boxing on HBO.…

Yeah Quillin/Zerafa is flat out pathetic and shows there's serious lack of confidence by Quillin's decision makers and likely with Peter himself. It's sad to see an undefeated former title holder being matched more lightly that prospects like Khytrov, Derevyanchenko,…
