Gallery: Danny Garcia and Peter Quillin retain titles in Brooklyn

Danny Garcia and Peter Quillin were successful in title defenses last night on Showtime, while Zab Judah gave a strong showing that will keep him in the mix at 140 pounds.

Danny Garcia

"It was a hell of a fight. I had to beat the Brooklyn guy in his hometown. I knew he had a lot of pride behind him and he was never going to give up. He is a crafty veteran with power. He hit me with a good shot. He hit me in the eleventh with a left hand that spun me around. It shook me up a little bit."

"I am a true champion and I had to fight through a storm tonight to prove that. Judah is the craftiest and strongest guy that I have fought so far. I knew he had a lot of power with the left, but I was able to stand my ground and counter it. My game plan was to try to use the jab, but he was stepping around. He was crafty and he took my jab away so I had to do what I had to do."

On the bad blood: "It's gone. It's respect. As you can see, it's a lot of bad blood. I've got cuts. He has cuts. We came here and gave the people of Brooklyn a nice show."

Zab Judah

"It's boxing and things happen. You win some, you lose some. Danny is a young, tough fighter. I was on my A-game tonight. I worked hard. I had a great training camp and we gave it our best shot."

"You're going to see me fight again. Why would I quit?"

Peter Quillin

"It's the journey that is the most important. I have to thank Fernando for coming up, but he couldn't do it. I had to do it for New York City.

"There is no concern when you are trying to stick to the gameplan. I believed in what my corner was telling me. I value their opinion and fernando came. This wasn't a fight that was made because we thought that I could beat Fernando Guerrero. He came and had the opportunity. I'm very thankful.

"I'm inpsired by my team. It's always working to try to do your best. I was working hard to do my best. I put myself through a hard training camp to try to come to this fight and try to look like superman. The sky is the limit."
