Andy Lee vs. Peter Quillan

Barclay's Center, Brooklyn, New York, April 11
By Peter Lim

The more composite, technically proficient and defensively sound Quillin (31-0, 22 KOs) should win this bout easily on condition he doesn't get caught by one of Lee's electrocuting right hooks. Given the way Lee (34-2, 24 KOs) separated his last two opponents from their senses with that punch, you can be sure Quillin's camp has conditioned him to avoid it like the Ebola virus. Quillin will land the first and last punch of every exchange, break Lee down and stop him in the middle rounds.


Fair verdict. Lee is so easy to hit but what he lacks in defense he makes up for in toughness and dogged Irish determination. Quillin looks like a gifted but underachieving fighter who'll never meet his full potential.
