Waking up

9:31 a.m.

Peter Quillin, the 27-year-old middleweight contender known as "Kid Chocolate," allowed to follow him throughout the day of Saturday's fight with Winky Wright, which began with a 9:30 a.m. wake-up call at the Torrance Marriott near South Bay in Los Angeles. The result is an intimate look at a day in the life of a prizefighter -- and a worm's-eye view of the sweet science circa 2012.
