Peter Quillin (born June 22, 1983 in Chicago, Illinois) raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and currently resides in New York City is an undefeated American professional boxer of Cuban descent and the former WBO Middleweight Champion. He is trained by 6-time trainer of the year Freddie Roach. Quillin is signed to Oscar de la Hoya's Golden Boy Promotions. He is not to be confused with Kid Chocolate, the late Cuban boxer with whom Quillin shares nicknames.
During his amateur boxing career he had 15 fights.
Quillin turned professional in New York and signed with Cedric Kushner.
In April 2008, Quillin dominated former contender Antwun Echols.
On June 11, 2008, Peter defeated Dionisio Miranda by unanimous decision at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City. Quillin won most of the early rounds of the fight and was cruising Miranda in the seventh round. Peter would recover well in the eight round, after being caught by Dionisio. Then Quillin fought the last two rounds of the fight effectively, with the final judges’ scores being 97-92, 97-92 and 97-93.
On April 29, 2011, Quillin stopped title contender Jesse Brinkley to win the vacant United States Boxing Organisation Super Middleweight Championship in Reno, Nevada. This bout was televised as the main-event by TeleFutura.
On November 5, 2011, Quillin made his HBO debut, stopping Craig McEwan in the 6th round in Cancun, Mexico. Then in June 2012 he fought Winky Wright, winning by unanimous decision and making Wright retire.
On September 4, 2014, Quillin vacated his WBO 160 pound title instead of facing the mandatory challenger Matvey Korobov for a purse that would have been over three times greater than any previous purse Quillin had received in his career.
