Peter Quillin (31-0, 22 knockouts) worked up a light sweat in punching up a human heavy bag in 35 year old Lukas Konecny (50-5, 23 knockouts) and gained a unanimous decision. The crowd booed lustily from the 9th round on due to the lack of action. Frankly, I was amazed anyone was still awake.


Konecny possessed little talent or skill to justify his #2 ranking from the WBO. He moved in behind a high guard and resembled a novice with about a weeks worth of training. Quillin, on the other hand, treated the bout as if he were in a public sparring session. He never picked up the pace or forced the issue at all. Konecny was there to be hit and Quillin obliged only intermittently.


During the post fight interview, Jim Gray asked Quillin if he was ready for the likes of a Gennady Golovkin or Sergio Martinez. Quillin answered in the affirmative with a straight face.


“The winner of the Sergio Martinez-Miguel Cotto fight, I want it. The winner of the Chavez Jr-Golovkin I want it.”


Quillin will next face fellow New Yorker Daniel Jacobs in what should be heated showdown slated for the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
