One pugilist who had absolutely no problems with almost three thousand miles move is an unbeaten middleweight Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin.
“ West Coast is the best coast,” said colorful Quillin (24-0,18KO’S) when I interviewed him last year at his new adapted home, Wildcard Boxing Club in Hollywood, California: “ Twenty four hours a day I think about boxing. Even when I go to the bathroom I think about boxing.” With that philosophy Kid Chocolate is able to get through rigorous training and sparring that is expected from fighters at the legendary gym.
With career stagnant inNew Yorkdue to managerial problems, Peter Quillin took his show on the road and came toHollywoodsigning a contract with leading boxing promoter, Golden Boy. “I am destined for stardom,” said Quillin, 28:” And this is where you get it.” Last time out, in March of this year, Quillin annihilated experienced veteran, Jesse Brinkley within three rounds.
