Benny Henderson Jr.: Congrats on your recent victory over Antwun Echols. Give the readers your thoughts on the fight.
Peter Quillin: It was a great win, it was a good thing for me to go in there and show that I am maturing as a pro and an upcoming prospect, I am trying to make that prospect name into the contender. A great win over a veteran, a very experienced fighter, a fighter that has been in there with great fighters is a great win for me. It is adding great things to "Kid Chocolate".
BH: How would you grade your performance?
PQ: I seen a lot of things that I can do better, and a lot of things that I felt that I have gotten stronger at. I did what I was supposed to do, I had a perfect score, ten points per round, and I think that is the way you should keep it. I learned a lot in that fight.
BH: What statement do you feel you made with this win over Echols?
PQ: Like I said my maturity, I grew up in that fight, I showed a lot of people that I can go ten rounds, that was my first ten rounder. Going ten rounds against somebody who battled for the championship, that is good. Echols took a lot of great shots, I did what the other guys did, and I beat him big. I barely got hit in that fight; I showed a lot of people great things in that fight.
BH: What is next for you?
PQ: Whatever my team wants for me, whenever they call me and say “Hey Pete let's fight”, I will be ready.
BH: Last question, anything you want to add to or say in closing of this interview?
PQ: I want to thank Doghouse Boxing, you guys can call me on a Sunday here in New York City, you Benny Henderson are great friend of mine, you can call me anytime, regardless if it is about boxing or not. I want to thank all my fans, ESPN, my team, I want to thank my family, my Dad, I have a great support system. I want to thank my friend Lameck who has been there for me, he is like a screwdriver, he tightens me up and keeps me straight, no homo stuff. (Laughs) Thanks to all that support me.
I would like to thank my man "Mr. Chocolate" for his time and thoughts.
