Mashantucket, Conn. — Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin is sick of answering the same question. You know the one. Was it really a good move to give up your WBO middleweight title and a million dollar plus payday against Matt Korobov to follow boxing's Pied Piper, Al Haymon, into an unknown fisti...

Triple G’s Hunt For Greatness and Signature Fight Continues
