“For Jacobs, a win over “Kid Chocolate” would make him a fighter before all else, and relegate his short-circuiting at the hands of Pirog, to the past it had long resided in. For Quillin, 159, a win Saturday would confirm what had been evident despite the vitriol and ridicule: that for all his buffoonery, he remained one of the best fighters in his division. At 1:25 of the first round, Jacobs was validated. As for Quillin? Of what he has become more will be said later.”
