- Updated: August 10, 2015
On the same day as Floyd Mayweather’s bout against Andre Berto, boxing fans will be able to start their afternoon with fisticuff action as Premier Boxing Champions will showcase Peter Quillen taking on Australian Michael Zerafa from the Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
“I’m ready and excited to return to the ring on NBC on September 12,” said Quillin.
“I’m already deep into training camp and preparing to be in the best shape of my career. I know my opponent is dangerous and he’s coming to make a name for himself. I’m at the top of my game and I plan to stay there.”
The NBC televised card has a support bout featuring Cornelius Bundrage as he faces up and comer Jermall Charlo.
“It’s a blessing to be the junior middleweight world champion,” said Bundrage.
“I want to thank my entire team for making this fight happen. I’m looking forward to my debut on PBC and successfully defending my second world title. Detroit is where the title is at, it’s not going anywhere. I will be ready to give my supporters all around the world a great performance, in victory.”
Charlo will be entering his first title fight.
“This is my time, I’ve never been more ready for a fight,” said Charlo.
“I’ve dreamed about a fight like this for a long time and it’s here in front of me. I will be spectacular and I will finish Cornelius Bundrage.”
