Before the great Bernard Hopkins seek to yet again mesmerize the boxing world, “Kid Chocolate” Peter Quillin, (30-0-0, 22 KOs) will look to continue his journey to become the best middleweight in the world and keep his unblemished boxing record intact when he put his WBO middleweight title on the line against Czech middleweight contender Lukas Konecny, (49-4-0, 23 KOs.)

Quillin has knocked out his last two opponents and will be looking to put on another great performance at the DC Armory in Washington, DC as with a win; he may get awarded with a big fight with one of the other top middleweights in the world.
Konecny is a strong power puncher so he will be a tough opponent for Quillin as I expect for Konecny to use his good boxing skills to set up power punching to try and stop Quillin in his tracks. Konecny, however, does not do well against fighters that apply effective pressure and Quillin is a great pressure fighter so this fight will boil down to whether or not the strong Konecny can deal with the explosive boxing offense of Quillin?
The answer is simply NO!! I expect for Quillin to win big en route to getting that big middleweight showdown he has been looking for in the near future.
Prediction: Quillin by knockout
