On the biggest night of Daniel Jacobs’ and Peter Quillins’ careers, both men were out to prove that they are among the top fighters of the middleweight division.  Well, two things were proven last night.  The first being, Daniel Jacobs is no joke, and as tough as they come.  Peter Quillin proved something as well.  He has a bum chin.

The tensions were high.  At stake, the WBA middleweight title of the world, Brooklyn bragging rights, and of course, elite status in the middleweight division.  Well, it didn’t last long.  Halfway through the first round, Daniel Jacobs fainted a left hook, which made Quillin drop his hands, and he got nailed with a hard straight right hand.  Jacobs, realizing he had Quillin hurt early, went in for the kill.  He saw the opportunity to put Quillin away, but at the same time, had to be careful not to punch himself out, incase Quillin made it through the round.  He would not.  Jacobs nailed Quillin with a huge right hand, right on the temple, and despite not going down, Quillin was badly hurt.  He had that “far away” look in his eyes, and all that was left, was for the referee to notice.  As soon as he did, he would call a halt to the contest, with no protest from Quillin at all.  Daniel Jacobs gets the TKO victory, and holds on to his title, while moving up in the ranks of the middleweight division.

The battle for Brooklyn will be under way in just a few short hours as the champion Daniel “Miracle Man” Jacobs (30-1, 27 KO’s) will be defending his WBA middleweight crown against Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (32-0-1, 23 KO’s), tonight at the Barclays Center.  The co-feature will be Jonathan Oquendo (26-4, 16 KO’s) VS Jesus Cuellar (27-1, 21 KO’s) for the WBA featherweight championship.  Also on the card will be a welterweight matchup between Chris Algieri (20-2, 8 KO’s) and Erick Bone (16-2, 8 KO’s).  Here is the breakdown and predictions:

DANIEL JACOBS

-Record:  30 – 1 – 0, 27 KO’s

-Weight Class:  Middleweight (160 lbs)

-Height:  6′ 0″

-Reach:  73″

-Born:  2/3/87 (age 28)

-Notable Fights:

  • Jarrod Fletcher  —  Win, TKO 5th round (12), 8/9/14.  (Won vacant WBA middleweight title)
  • Caleb Traux  —  Win, TKO 12th round (12), 4/24/15.
  • Sergio Mora  —  Win, TKO 2nd round (12), 8/1/15.

Daniel Jacobs has overcome the toughest opponent in the world, CANCER.  His list of ‘human’ opponents is not overly impressive though.  Peter Quillin will most definitely be his career defining opponent.  Jacobs is very strong for his weight though, with 27 of his 30 victories coming by way of knockout, so his best chance of victory will be just that.  A knockout.

PETER QUILLIN

-Record:  32 – 0 – 0, 23 KO’s

-Weight Class:  Middleweight

-Height:  5′ 11″

-Reach:  73″

-Born:  6/22/83 (age 32)

-Notable Fights:

  • Winky Wright  —  Win, Unanimous Decision (10), 6/2/12.
  • Hassan N’Dam  —  Win, Unanimous Decision (12), 10/20/12.  (Won WBO middleweight title)
  • Andy Lee  —  Draw, Split Decision (12), 4/11/15.

Peter Quillin will be going in to this fight with the experience advantage, as he has fought more big names then Jacobs has.  The thought kid from Brooklyn will be trying to take the WBA championship away from Daniel Jacobs, who is another tough kid from Brooklyn.  After the disappointing draw with Andy Lee, Quillin is back in the title hunt tonight.

Predictions:

  • Chris Algieri  —  def  —  Erick Bone  —  via  —  Unanimous Decision
  • Jesus Cuellar  —  def  —  Jonathan Oquendo  —  via  —  TKO 7th round
  • Peter Quillin  —  def  —  Daniel Jacobs  —  via  —  Unanimous Decision

#5.  DAVID LEMIEUX (33 – 2, 31 KO’s)

  • David Lemieux just destroyed Gabriel Rosado, but Rosado is no Golovkin.  Lemieux has tremendous power in both hands, and if he can land the right shot at the right time, its lights out for his opponent.  GGG has shown that he’s got an iron chin, and can take a shot from anyone.  His defense is very underrated, and Lemieux is wild.
  • Lemieux has awesome power, and that would probably keep Golovkin at bay for the first few rounds.  His defense on the other hand is questionable at best.  Once Golovkin finds the holes, which he would because he’s smart, Lemieux would be in big trouble.  Prediction:  Golovkin would KO Lemieux inside of 6 rounds.

#4.  JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ JR 

  • Chavez Jr said today that he would bet 1 Million Dollars that he could knock out Gennady Golovkin.  He then added that if it wasn’t for his punching power, GGG would not be a good boxer.  I don’t know if I can agree with that, given the fact that Golovkin beat the living day lights out of Martin Murray last night, and knocked out 4 of his last 6 opponents before that inside of 3 rounds.  Golovkin is currently a Middleweight (160lbs) and this fight would require a move up to Super Middleweight (168lbs).  Never the less, the power would still be there, and Chavrez has dodged this fight in the past.
  • In my opinion, Chavez is actually the second worst opponent for GGG on this list.  He has a questionable chin, which makes him an ideal KO victim.  There is also the fact that Brian Vera gave Chavez trouble.  If Vera can give you trouble, what do you think GGG would do.   Predicton:  Golovkin would KO Chavez inside of 7 rounds.

#3.  PETER QUILLIN (31 – 0, 22 KO’s)

  • Peter Quillin sure did make it look like he vacated his Middleweight title so he wouldn’t have to deal with fighting Golovkin.  He has a fight coming up against Andy Lee, and the winner of this could quite possibly get a shot at Golovkin anyway.  Quillin is also undefeated, which makes this fight very appealing, and it also means he’s never been knocked out.  He has tremendous boxing skills, but his list of opponents so far is not that impressive.
  • Quillin has a nice combination of pure boxing ability and decent power in both hands.  But a nice jab can only keep a killer in his cage for so long.  Quillin would be fighting on his back foot the whole time, but ultimately would last longer then the previous two.  Prediction:  Golovkin would KO Quillin inside of 10 rounds.

#2.  MIGUEL COTTO (39 – 4, 32 KO’s)

  • No doubt Cotto is a future hall of famed.  With his recent destruction of Middleweight Champ Sergio Martinez, Cotto makes a very tasty opponent for Golovkin.  Cotto has a good chin, which makes knocking him out a little difficult, and he’s also a great boxer.  With Freddy Roach now training him, the sky is the limit.
  • This would be a great fight and I don’t think either guy would get knocked out, even tho both are great offensive fighters.  That fact would also make this a very exciting fight filled with fireworks.  Although i can’t say for certain who would come out with a victory, I give golovkin the edge here.  Predition:  Golovkin would defeat Cotto by Unanimous Decision

#1.  ANDRE WARD (27 – 0, 14 KO’s)

  • This would be another fight that would require Golovkin to move up in weight to 168 pounds.  Like I said before, I don’t view this as a problem, and his punching power would not diminish.  Andre ward was recently removed from the pound for pound list, but it was strictly due to inactivity.  Ward is the superior boxer in this senario, and he would give Golovkin the fight of his life.
  • Unfortunately for Ward, he lacks the power to really hurt Golovkin, and would have to beat him on the scorecards.  He is on the other hand, the best person to do so.  He is a better boxer then Golovkin, and would win more rounds on the cards.  Golovkin would deal Ward his first knockdowns tho, and that would probably be the difference at the end of this spectacular fight.  Prediction:  Could go either way, but Golovkin would defeat Ward by Split Decision

Andy Lee won the WBO Middleweight title, the same title that Peter Quillin vacated.  He took on Matt Korobov on December 13th of last year, and after losing every round, Andy Lee did what he dies best.  A dramatic left hook sledgehammer landed out of nowhere on Korobov’s right temple, and it was all history from there.  Korobov did not last much longer into the 6th round, and Andy Lee fulfilled Emanuel Stewarts profecy, and became world champion.

Peter Quillin vacated this title for very strange reasons.  Seemingly he did it to avoid a fight with Gennady Golovkin, but who really knows.  Now on April 11th, Quillin and Lee will meet at the Barclays center in Brooklyn New York to fight for that very title.  This will be Andy Lee’s first defense of his 160 pound title, and mandatory contender Billy Joe Saunders will step aside to allow Quillin to fight this fight.  Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin brings to the table a 31-0 record with 22 KO’s, while “Irish” Andy Lee has a record of 34-2 with 24 Knockouts.
