On Saturday night, Oct. 27, WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin found himself in a rough and tumble battle with Gabriel Rosado inside of the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Despite dropping his Philadelphia foe in the second round with a quick left hook, Quillin had to battle through some rocky moments, as Rosado regrouped and forced the fight for many of the following rounds.

Much of the action was give and take, with Quillin landing the sharper punches while Rosado had success imposing his physical strength and unleashing combinations along the ropes.

Rosado would suffer a nasty cut above his left eye in the ninth round, with the gash being bad enough for referee Allan Huggins to elect to stop the action to check it out one round later.

In an excellent fight, WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillen successfully defended his WBO middleweight crown after challenger Gabriel Rosado saw the fight stopped in the 10th round due to a nasty cut on his left eyelid. Quillen scored a knockdown in the second round but Rosado picked up a lot of momentum after that and appeared to be taking a lot of the late rounds. A jab from Quillen would cause the eventual cut that forced the ringside physician to halt the action. At the time of the stoppage, scorecards reading 90-80, 89-81, and 87-83 all favored Quillen. To be honest the first two scores were completely off base, as this was a competitive fight
