Peter Quillin & Caleb Truax Fight to No Decision

Truax Suffers Cut from Accidental Head Butt in Round Two of Main Event of Premier Boxing Champions on FS1 & FOX Deportes Saturday Night from The Armory in Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (April 14, 2019) - Former world champions Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin and Caleb "Golden" Truax fought to a no-decision in an IBF super middleweight title eliminator that headlined Premier Boxing Champions on FS1 and FOX Deportes Saturday night from The Armory in Minneapolis.

Truax suffered a deep cut above his right eye midway through the second round from an accidental head butt. While he was able to finish the round, upon returning to his corner, the ringside doctor recommended stopping the bout. Because four rounds had not been completed, the fight was ruled a no-decision one second into round three.

Quillin, who won both of the first two rounds on all three scorecards, was disappointed in the result but understood the doctor's decision.

"First of all, I think the doctor's job is to make sure the fighter is safe," said Quillin. "That's number one. People would rather see him fight without an eye, but I'd rather have the guy be able to fight another day."

Truax, a Minnesota-native fighting in front of an electric hometown crowd, was understandably upset with the way the fight turned out.

"It's disappointing I couldn't put on a good fight for the fans," said Truax. "They came to see 12 rounds of action. It hurts but that's boxing. I'm flattered that everybody came out for me. The fans are doing a great job representing how strong our boxing community is. This is one of the best times in decades for Minnesota boxing.

"My cutman tells me it's pretty bad so I'm going to have to take a little time off and get some stitches. I'll heal up and see what's next."

After the fight, Quillin said he would be willing to rematch Truax, and that he himself is ready to get right back to work.

"I want to do it again with Truax here in Minnesota or come back to Brooklyn, my home," said Quillin. "Let him get stitched up. Me and my trainer will be back in the gym on Monday. We didn't get the sweat in, we didn't get to do anything tonight. We'll be back in the gym Monday and be dedicated and will wait for the phone to ring."

The co-main event saw top contender Sergiy Derevyanchenko (13-1, 10 KOs) earn a hard-fought unanimous decision victory over Jack Culcay (25-4, 13 KOs) in an IBF middleweight title eliminator.

The early action saw Culcay looking to box and evade the returning fire from Derevyanchenko. Culcay had success landing quick combos before rapidly circling the ring as his opponent tried to get his offense going.

"I knew that he was going to move a lot," said Derevyanchenko. "We prepared for it because we knew what kind of fighter he was. My mentality was that I had to seek and destroy."

In round four Derevyanchenko began to have more success throwing combinations to negate the movement from Culcay. After establishing the jab, he began to use a straight right hand to initiate the offense and close the distance before Culcay could retreat and relentlessly attacking him with volume punching.

"My strategy was to use my jab and control the distance, because I had the height advantage," said Derevyanchenko. "I wanted to put pressure on at the right times and fight smart."

As the fight went on and Derevyanchenko looked to be taking control, Culcay began to try to smother Derevyanchenko's offense by crowding him on the inside. This led to more exchanges and eventually Culcay's best moment of the fight, landing a clean right hand on the end of an exchange that nearly put Derevyanchenko on the mat.

Derevyanchenko was able to weather the rocky moment and recover by the final round to stamp the victory by winning the 12th on all three judges' cards. The final scores were 116-112 twice and 115-113. Derevyanchenko was able to win the fight with his volume, out landing Culcay 229 to 145 and out throwing him 887 to 476, while Culcay had an advantage with a 30.5% connect rate to Derevyanchenko's 25.8%.

"I thought that I won the fight," said Culcay. "It was close but I thought I edged it by a couple of rounds. I had him hurt in the 10th round. He's a good fighter but I was close to getting him out. The judges saw it differently than I did."

"I want the big fights," said Derevyanchenko. "I'm ready for any of the champions. I'm not backing down from anyone."

Action on FS1 also featured unbeaten rising prospect Joey Spencer (6-0, 6 KOs) dominating Osias Vasquez (4-3) on his way to a unanimous decision in a six-round super welterweight attraction.

"I was extremely happy to get six rounds in," said Spencer. "This is the first time I've gone six rounds. This guy was tough and kept walking through everything. That was what I needed. I hadn't experienced that yet in a fight."

The 19-year-old Spencer dominated his opponent, flashing a powerful sweeping left hook to punctuate his offensive arsenal, along with ring generalship beyond his years.

Vasquez became frustrated early, throwing low blows until he was deducted a point in round three by referee Gary Miezwa. After six rounds, Spencer remained unbeaten by scores of 60-52 twice and 59-53.

"He was very durable and I just had to keep fighting until the end," said Spencer. "I love fighting here in Minnesota, it's becoming my second home. I'm going to get back in the gym and be back soon and continue to take care of business."

In PBC Prelims on FS2, rising super featherweight prospect Chris Colbert (11-0 4 KOs) scored a dominant knockout of Mario Briones (29-9-2, 21 KOs) in the second round of their bout. Colbert delivered a one-punch knockdown of Briones midway through round two with a lightning-fast left hand and follow up with a flurry that forced referee Celestino Ruiz to halt the fight 1:59 into the round. The action also saw prospect Jose Miguel Borrego (15-2, 13 KOs) earn a unanimous decision over Hector Ambriz Suarez (12-10-2, 6 KOs) by scores of 100-89 twice and 100-90 after 10 rounds of action.
