Middleweight contender Peter Quillin scored a sixth round TKO win over Craig McEwan in the featured under-card bout of tonight's HBO show.  In what was a bit of an awkward messy scrap, Quillin controlled the action throughout, before prompting the stoppage with a big check-hook, followed by a couple hard overhand rights.  McEwan fell forward into the top rope, though looked like he still had his wits about him and was less than thrilled with the stoppage.

While it certainly looked like a quick stoppage from the third man, the Scottish fighter's right eye was in rough shape, and a Quillin victory appeared inevitable at least a couple rounds before the conclusion.

Scott's Notes: Quillin has been talked up by Lou DiBella as either a potential Sergio Martinez opponent next year, or the guy that Dmitry Pirog needs to fight to get his shot at Martinez. I don't think Pirog vs Quillin is a bad idea. We're talking about a pair of talented fighters who could use that type of win. It would make for a fine Martinez co-feature whenever Sergio returns, and the timetables should line up well. Tonight's fight was a quick stoppage, but Quillin was having no trouble in there at all.
