December 5, 2015 Daniel Jacobs vs. Peter Quillin Full Fight Replay at the Barclays in Brooklyn, New York for the WBA World middleweight
Daniel Jacobs blitzes past Peter Quillin in 85 seconds
In one of the most thunderous displays of recent times, Daniel Jacobs blitzed past former WBO champion Peter Quillin in a little over a minute of the first round to retain the WBA middleweight championship at the Barclays center on Saturday night. The ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs caught ‘Kid Choclate’ Quillin with a big right early on in the fight. Quillin never really recovered from that and Jacobs pounced upon the opportunity by unleashing a flurry of combination punches including fiery full blooded hooks. The referee Harvey Dock had to intervene and stop the fight at 1:25 with Quillin barely standing on his feet and having a weary look on his face.
“Speed Kills” Jacobs remarked after the fight. He now has now won 11 consecutive bouts after a shock loss to Dmitri Pirog in the year 2010. He is now undefeated for 5 consecutive years. The champ went on to say that there were no lucky shots in boxing referring to the big right that he connected in the first round and remarking that he went on the offensive right from the word go.
Drama had ensued earlier at the Barclays center with some mild protests on the premature end to the fight by referee Harvey Dock but there was no major protest from Quillin himself who was visibly quite shaken from the onslaught. All he said later on was that he could have continued but there was no protest even after the fight. Jacobs dominated the fight on paper as well landing a mammoth 27 of 53 punches which included 25 power packed punches compared to Quillin’s meager 2 out of 16. This was Quillin’s first defeat in over 30 professional fights and certainly a hard one for him to swallow.
There was a talk about rematch from both sides. A confident Jacobs said that he was definitely open for a rematch if the fans wanted to see him fight Quillin again. The manner of this victory will indeed be a great confidence booster for Daniel Jacobs who will now rise to 30 wins with 28 knock outs to his credit and only the lone defeat. He also has a few good options to whom he fights next; the prime candidate being the winner of Billy Joe Saunders vs Andy Lee match. It is also not inconceivable that Jacobs might go on to challenge Gennady Golovkin who is the current unified WBA, IBF, WBC and IBO middleweight champion. That will promise to be a great mouth watering fight!
