BROOKLYN – Before they enter the ring at Barclays Center, Daniel “The Miracle Man” Jacobs and Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin took center stage at the arena in Brooklyn as they conducted the pregame player introductions of the Brooklyn Nets before their win Tuesday night against the Phoenix Suns.
In addition, recently retired pound-for-pound king Floyd “Money” Mayweather was in attendance and posed with his fellow Grand Rapids born fighter in Quillin.
The two charismatic young fighters will square off for Jacobs’ WBA Middleweight World Title this Saturday, December 5 as the headlining attraction live on SHOWTIME. Preceding the Jacobs-Quillin all-Brooklyn battle is exciting, hard-hitting WBA Featherweight World Champion Jesus Cuellar (27-1, 21 KOs) as he defends against Puerto Rico’s Jonathan “Polvo” Oquendo (26-4, 16 KOs) in the 12-round semi-main.
