Former world champion, Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin will be entering the ring versus heavy-hitter Alfredo Angulo on September 21 in a 12-round super middleweight showdown headlining Premier Boxing Champions Fight Night on FS1 and on Fox Deportes from Rabobank Arena in Bakersfield, California.
Quillin (34-1,1 23KOs) is looking to climb his way back into the championship ranks and must go through Angulo before reaching them once again. Chicago born, 36-year-old, who calls Brooklyn home, won the middleweight world title against Hassan N’Dam in 2012. Successfully defending it three times.
He is coming off a no-decision match against former super middleweight champion Caleb Truax on April 13th after an accidental head butt caused a deep cut over Truax’s right eye. Although he had taken the first two rounds on all three judges’ scorecards, the fight was brought to an early ending due to Truax’s injury and resulted in a no-decision.
Scheduled to rematch this past August 31, Truax withdrew due to an Achilles injury. “It looks like the Caleb Truax’s fight wasn’t meant to be, but this fight against Angulo is an important fight for me to establish myself in this division,” said Quillin. Adding that “This is what was meant to be and I’m going to make the most of it with a great performance on September 21.”
Angulo (25-7, 21KOs) will be entering the ring against Quillin after a knockout win over Evert Bravo on April 20. The 37-year-old veteran has battled it out against some of the top boxers during a career that has seen him in numerous exciting bouts against living legends like Canelo Alvarez and Erislandy Lara.
“I am looking forward to showing my fans the best Alfredo Angulo on September 21,” said Angulo. “I have been working hard towards this opportunity. This is a chance to move closer to a world title and with hard work and the support of my team, I’m going to win that title.”
CHRIS COLBERT V. MIGUEL BELTRAN JR.
With undefeated and fast-rising lightweight prospect, Chris “Prime Time” Colbert, dueling against former title challenger, Miguel Beltran Jr., September 21 is looking to be an exciting night of boxing.
Representing his hometown of Brooklyn, New York, Colbert (12-0, 4KOs) is quickly making a name for himself as he continues to showcase his incomparable skills in the ring. He most recently dominated Alberto Mercado in an unanimous decision in June.
“This is a great fight card with anything a boxing fan could want, featuring former champions, top contenders and future stars, all in evenly-match bouts that promise drama,” said Tom Brown, President of TGB Promotions. “Peter Quillin vs. Alfredo Angulo promises to be a good, old fashion slugfest with two fighters looking to prove they’re ready for a world title fight next. With exciting prospects like Chris Colbert and Jesus Ramos, plus evenly matched fights between contenders in Williams vs. Dulorme and Rosario vs. Murtazaliev, this will be an action-packed night from top to bottom.”
