Peter Quillin has no problem with Ishe Smith, wants world title in 2012

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.

“ANDY LEE AND HIS PEOPLE…THEY NEVER TOOK THE FIGHT WITH ME”

“His last fight was against Bryan Vera, so I mean, do you consider Bryan Vera better than me? You know what I’m saying? Those are some of the things that I don’t really understand. Ultimately, they want to make excuses on why they didn’t want to take the fight with me. I am a dangerous fighter. I am fighter that’s high risk…I never turned down the fight. Andy Lee and his people retuned to me with a number and I agreed and they never took the fight with me,” stated undefeated middleweight contender Peter Quillin, who was more than willing to step in as a “suitable opponent” to face Andy Lee prior to his decision to pull out of his previously scheduled March 17 HBO date.

Peter Quillin: “Andy Lee… I’m Willing and Ready To Fight!”

“It’s a storyline behind the fight. You’ll have Freddie Roach vs. Emanuel Steward. You’ll have an Irish guy here in New York, which probably will have a lot of Irish people here, but you also have a New York fighter on the card, so that makes for a good story. Also what it is is two middleweights on the cusp, alright. You also could match up the performances with Andy Lee vs. Craig McEwan; you could also match my performance, Craig McEwan vs. me, so it’s already a storyline there for the fight. The fight is a perfect fight for the both of us to be able to get the middleweight championship fight,” stated undefeated middleweight contender Peter Quillin, who was on hand at the Martinez vs. Macklin press conference to state his case to face fellow middleweight contender Andy Lee, who has yet to find an opponent, but is scheduled to fight on the undercard.
