Just about every fighter that steps in the ring has the ambition of becoming champion, some reach the peak and strap on a world title, while others fall short of their goals, but most importantly if you want to be known as the champ, you have garner a champions mind as well as work ethic, and abilities.

His journey to become champ continues December 13th as he makes his way into the ring for the eighth and final time of
2007. ‘Kid Chocolate’ looks to electrify the ringside fight fans at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, NY, and gain his eight win of the year. At this time his opponent is projected to be Troy Lowry, 27-7 (16), but we know how the opponents come and go at times, either way Quillin will be prepared.
In his two years as a professional Peter has defeated all that has crossed his pathway, 2007 has been a stellar year for the kid as he has went 7-0 (5) so far this year and if all goes as planned he will make it eight victories on the year.

Benny Henderson Jr.: How has life been treating yah brother?
Peter Quillin: I have been training and everything.
BH: You are fighting December 13th in New York, any news on your opponent?
PQ: His name was Troy Lowry the last time I heard. I really do not know anything about him, I am going to watch tapes on him and I will know from there what I am heading into.
BH: You have had a great 2007 this far, seven victories and we are projecting eight, so what grade would you give yourself for this past year as well what have you learned?
PQ: I give myself a B. I have to live totally to my expectancy not just inside the ring but outside as well, so I give myself a B simply because I have been learning on the job. Now that have learned so much more I am going to go out in 2008 and try to work hard enough to get an A.
BH: What statement do you feel you have made about ‘Kid Chocolate’ with these seven fights?
PQ: I don’t now, it is like I am up and own with it because I go on line and see all these boxing websites and see what they have been saying about me and people have these up and down things they feel there are other prospects out there that can beat me. I look at it as this, at the end of the day I am the one in the ring and I know what I am capable of doing. I think I gave some people something to look for in the future, I have had a lot of people say that I may be fortunate enough to be a world class fighter and become a champion, so I am going to work hard.
BH: What can the fight fans expect from ‘Kid Chocolate’ come fight night?
PQ: I am going to give you the explosive energetic person that I am, like I say about my previous fights, I’ll give you what I have been doing in the gym. The ring is my office and regardless of what people think of me I am going to go in there and do my job.
BH: Anything in closing?
PQ: I want to thank you Benny Henderson for giving me a call, not from being a fighter but being from faith, I hope you are praying for me because I do slip up and I do have things that I need to work on to try to take a deeper walk with God. I really want to thank my fans out there for believing in me and if they believe in me I will believe in my self as well. I just want to be a world champion and I want to accomplish more than what other boxers have accomplished in their time. I want people to pray for me and hope for the best for me and keep me in their minds when they think about boxing.
I would like to thank Peter Quillin for taking the time out to speak to Doghouse Boxing.
