Undefeated Peter ‘Kid Chocolate’ Quillin is ready to realise his dream this year and become the world middleweight champion after racking up 26 straight victories with 20 knockouts.
The 28 year-old told WBN that his 2011 Twitter feud with former Contender star Ishe Smith was now a thing of the past and he is moving forward towards facing one of the middleweight title holders in the near future.
Asked whether he would entertain the prospect of facing a rejuvenated Smith, who has recently signed a three-fight deal with Prizefight Promotions, Quillin told World Boxing News: “Only if he goes and wins a big fight.
“I am not stepping down (a level) to fight a guy like Ishe Smith. I’m looking to fight champions or guys who have fought world champions. Who has Ishe fought? Only prospects and I’m past being a prospect. I’m a contender now.
