MORA ASKING FOR OCTOBER SHOT AT QUILLIN
Press Release: With undefeated WBO middleweight titleholder Peter Quillin still searching for an opponent for his upcoming title defense on October 26th in Atlantic City, New Jersey, ex-WBC junior middleweight champion Sergio Mora says he would be honored to step in to face Quillin. "Peter Quillin is a really strong, big, and avoided middleweight champion. He is annihilating everyone that he steps in against and because of that, not many people are jumping at the chance to face him. I have never been afraid to face any fighter in my entire career though and the same goes for Peter," stated Mora. "His style reminds me a lot of the late great Vernon Forrest, so I would be very familiar with the task at hand and would love the opportunity to take on that challenge." Mora (24-3-2, 7 KOs), the original winner of the Contender reality show, is coming off a unanimous decision win over Grzegorz Proksa on June 28th. He reached the high point of his career when he won the WBC light middleweight championship with an upset majority decision over the late great Vernon Forrest in 2008.
