Peter Quillin scored six knockdowns en route to outpointing gallant Hassan N’Dam and winning the talented Frenchman’s WBO middleweight title on the undercard of the Danny Garcia-Erik Morales rematch in Brooklyn, N.Y., on Saturday.

Quillin (28-0, 20 knockdowns) scored two knockdowns in each round of four, six and 12 to secure a decision by unanimous scores of 115-107. Despite the knockdowns, it was a very hard fight, one which N’Dam (27-1, 17 KOs) outworked and outboxed Quillin in the rounds that he wasn’t dropped.

N’Dam showed a lot of heart by battling back every time he was floored or hurt during the fight, but at the end of the night, Quillin’s punching power was the difference in a hotly contested 160-pound fight.

 

A full ringside report from Brooklyn will follow shortly.
