Former middleweight champion Kid Chocolate comeback to boxing for the first time since suffering defeat to Daniel Jacobs.
Peter ‘Kid Chocolate’ Quillin has been spending some time away from the sport over the last two years or so since been stopped by Danny ‘Miracle’ Man Jacobs for the WBA world middleweight title in 2015 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
It was the first defeat in a stellar career overall that the only other blemish on included a draw against Irishman Andy Lee in April 2015.
It now appears that Kid Chocolate is back for good however after Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe confirmed:
“Excited to see Kid Chocolate back in action on 8 Sep, he’s ready to get back in mix and do his thing.”
The opponent this Friday is still to be confirmed but Quillin will definitely be boxing at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino as part of the Mayweather Promotions card that will also feature David Benavidez vs Ronald Gavril as the headliner for the vacant WBC super-middleweight championship – live on Premier Boxing Champions.
J’Leon Love and undefeated Caleb Plant will also feature on the show.
Many fight fans will be interested to see what the now 34 year old Kid Chocolate has left in the tank.
The two years break could very well have done him the world of good and if he still has the exciting style that he’s had before, fans could be in for a treat.
Former WBO middleweight champion Kid Chocolate currently holds a professional boxing record of 32-1-1-23KO and has faced names such as Andy Lee, Hassan N’Dam, Ronald Wright, Fernando Guerrero, Gabriel Rosado and Danny Jacobs in his career to date.
Lets take a quick stroll down memory lane back to Kid Chocolate vs Andy Lee, one hell of a fight:
