This past Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Daniel Jacobs retained his WBA Middleweight title with a stunning first round stoppage over Peter Quillin.
One of the most interested spectators was undefeated and world ranked Middleweight Antoine “Action” Douglas.
Douglas (19-0-1, 13 KO’s) of Washington, DC, was an honored guest of Showtime Championship Boxing host Brian Custer along with WBC Heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder for an exclusive interview, just before the main event began.
“I will say within a year, I will be fighting on this level, no more, no less,” Said Douglas, who is currently ranked number four by the WBO, number-nine by the WBA and number-eleven by the IBF.
Douglas, who is coming off a fourth round stoppage of Les Sherrington on November 6th in Las Vegas, that took place on Showtime’s acclaimed, ShoBox: The New Generation.
“I had a great stoppage, but the announcers said I got hit with four punches. I want to turn that into zero”
Douglas is promoted by GH3 Promotions and his promoter Vito Mielnicki said, “I am very proud of Antoine and I want to thank Showtime. To have him on camera with Deontay Wilder shows that the network is fully behind him.
“The network showed early on that they have a great interest in Antoine and that spot on Saturday showed that. There were a lot of great fighters in the crowd and for Antoine to be chosen for that interview gave him terrific exposure.”
