On Wednesday night, Nov. 25, WBA junior middleweight world champion Erislandy Lara made quick work of former weleterweight champion Jan Zaveck in Hialeah, Fl., registering a 3rd round TKO to improve to 22-2-2 with 13 knockouts.
Former WBO middleweight champion Peter Quillin was in attendance and spoke with Hustle Boss’s Jared Ingrisano following the action.
Quillin is slated with a big Dec. 5 matchup against WBA middleweight champion Danny Jacobs yet it seems to be the name of WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin that he continues to hear. When asked about a future clash with the Kazakhstan star, who defeated David Lemieux via 8th round TKO last month, Quillin seems receptive but understands how the business side of things work.
“This is a political game,” Quillin stated. “Do you know how big of a fish I am in this big ass pond? When you look at a potential fight between me and him and you look at the people I work with, they don’t do anything but try to make the best fights and try to get their boxers paid. If there’s ever a GGG fight, I’m going to sit down with Al Haymon.”
