The Brink: Peter "Kid Chocolate" Qullin is a short film from Grantland and director Jason Hehir, and I truly recommend you give this eight minutes of your time. By the end, I only wished it had been a little longer. It's a wonderful bit of exposure for Quillin, as Hehir and crew take us through his WBO middleweight title-winning night on October 20 in Brooklyn, when he beat Hassan N'dam in the fight of the night on the first-ever boxing bill at the Barclays Center. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. - Scott Christ, BLH
From the media release:
Grantland's THE BRINK: Peter "Kid Chocolate" Quillin is an inside look at one of boxing's most promising and charismatic figures.
Our cameras follow Quillin, who overcame dire poverty as a child to become the undefeated #1 middleweight contender, on the most important night of his life: his first world title shot, at the Barclays Center in his adopted hometown of Brooklyn.
This is the first in director Jason Hehir's short film series for Grantland chronicling the moment when a rising athlete/artist breaks through onto the big stage.
