Motivational Boxer I met last year.

Last year I was working out at the track stadium on the campus of UCLA near my home. I noticed a young man working out with a coach who looked very fit and strong but was clearly too old to be a student. During a break in his training he approached me with a smile and told me he could see I was working hard. I told him it was clear to me that he was training with purpose and asked him what he was preparing for. He told me he was getting ready because in a month he would fight for the  Middleweight Championship of the World. We spoke a bit longer and he explained that he was just in LA for a short visit before returning to New York and his final preparation. His name is Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin and he would win his fight in heroic fashion. This is a powerful eight minute film that chronicles that fight. PK
