On Saturday night, Dec. 6, WBA middleweight champion Danny Jacobs produced one of the most electrifying performances of the year in halting former titlist Peter Quillin in under one round.

Jacobs (31-1, 28 KO’s) stormed out of the gates and had Quillin (32-1-1, 23 KO’s) in trouble courtesy of a right hand within the first minute of the match. ¬†Quillin fought valiantly, but was overwhelmed and saw referee Harvey Dock waive the match off after another right hand blitzed him and had him on shaky legs.
