Peter Quillin retains middleweight title, stopping Gabriel Rosado in 10th on cuts

Peter “Kid Chololate” Quillin of Brooklyn retained his middleweight world title when he stopped Gabriel Rosado of Philadelphia in the 10th round on cuts at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City on Saturday night.

Rosado (21-7, 13 KOs) complained afterward that this was a world championship fight and that it should not have been stopped in the championship rounds. His cut on the left eye lid was absolutely gruesome.

Interestingly, Quillin (30-0, 22 KOs) was well ahead on the judges’ scorecards at the time in a fight that appeared very close. The Showtime announcers could not believe one judge (Kason Cheeks) had Quillin winning a shutout. Another, Waleska Roldan, had Quillin ahead 89-91. And Ron McNair had Quillin up 87-83.




…89-81, 100-90…
