great card and no quintana can do 3 tune up fights since hes been out for a long time and then give canelo hello not a easy win canelo needs to step up and fight some top fighters

That actually sounds like a good fight Quintana knows how to box pretty well and is a southpaw. I still think Canelo would break him down with a good body attack and stop him in the later rds 8-9, but…
