Quillin turned professional on June 9, 2005 after signing with promoter Cedric Kushner. In April 2008, Quillin dominated former contender Antwun Echols. On June 11, 2008, Peter defeated Dionisio Miranda by unanimous decision at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City. Quillin won most of the early rounds of the fight and was cruising Miranda in the seventh round. Peter would recover well in the eight round, after being caught by Dionisio. Then Quillin fought the last two rounds of the fight effectively, with the final judges’ scores being 97-92, 97-92 and 97-93. In April 2010, Peter moved from New York City to Los Angeles to train with 4-time trainer of the year Freddie Roach. On April 29, 2011, Quillin stopped title contender Jesse Brinkley to win the vacant United States Boxing Organisation Super Middleweight Championship in Reno, Nevada. On July 23, 2011, Quillin defeated late substitute Jason LeHoullier in Las Vegas. Although there were no knockdowns, LeHoullier was outclassed. On November 5, 2011, Quillin made his HBO debut, stopping Craig McEwan in the 6th round in Cancún, Mexico. Then in June 2012 he fought Winky Wright, winning by unanimous decision and making Wright retire. On September 4, 2014, Quillin vacated his WBO 160 pound title instead of facing the mandatory challenger Matvey Korobov for a purse that would have been over three times greater than any previous purse Quillin had received in his career. On April 11, 2015, Quillin returned to the ring to fight Andy Lee at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York in his Premier Boxing Champions debut, live on NBC. Due to not making weight at the weigh-in however, Quillin was ineligible to win Lee's WBO World Middleweight Title. In the first round, Quillin dropped Lee hard with an overhand right near the end of round one, and scored a questionable knockdown in round 3 when he stood on Lee's foot and tripped him. In round 7 however, Quillin tasted the canvas for the first time himself on a Lee right hook. The rest of the fight Lee boxed consistently as Quillin's work rate and accuracy dropped. By the end of the 12th round, the fight was scored 113-112 for Lee, 113-112 for Quillin, and 113-113, making the official result of the fight a split draw. On December 5, 2015, Quillin suffered the 1st defeat of his career suffering a TKO loss to Daniel Jacobs in the 1st round. On September 8, 2017, Quillin made his return to the ring winning a competitive fight with Dashon Johnson
