'Kid Chocolate' sweet on Pacquiao

June, 8, 2012
NYFightBlog checked in with Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin, the middleweight contender on the cusp of a title crack, to get his take on Saturday's welterweight showdown, between Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley Jr..

Here's Choc's take: "PacMan is durable with any fighter he's in there with. This fight, I feel, is a top-level fight because Bradley wants to prove that he can beat Manny. I think this is a punchers' fight and I think PacMan will win because of that. With Manny's one-punch knockout power, if Bradley can get through that, I think this makes for a good fight, a close fight, and it would make an awesome rematch -- if it's close."
