Peter Quillin-Caleb Truax ends in no-contest
An IBF super middleweight elimination clash between former world champions Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin (34-1-1, 23 KOs) and hometown hero “Golden” Caleb Truax (30-4-2, 19 KOs) ended in a no-decision on Saturday night at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota, essentially leaving the division at a stand-still. A headbutt in the second round, caused Truax to have a nasty cut that stopped the bout. The bout was not heavily hyped prior and came and went with a bizarre ending.

Derervyanchenko is now the mandatory challenger for the winner of Canelo Alvarez vs. Daniel Jacobs, whether he gets a shot either, we will see as, both fighters might vacate to seek bigger money fights, as Derevyanchenko is not the biggest draw in the sport.
