Billed as a battle of the borough where the winner took Brooklyn and the belt, Danny Jacobs defeated challenger Peter Quillin with an 85-second stoppage in their WBC Middleweight championship belt at the Barclays Center on Sunday.

Kid Chocolate Quillin (32-1-1), a neighborhood friend of Jacobs', landed just two punches in contrast to Jacobs (31-1, 28 knockouts) who landed 27 of 53 punches.

"I told him I love him," Jacobs said. "He's a brother of mine. Me and Peter Quillin go back to the Golden Gloves days. I have nothing but respect for him, his family -- but I knew it would be my night."

Said Quillin, "There's no one better to lose to than Danny Jacobs."

Here are some photos from the bout.
