Carlos Quintana Injured, Withdraws From 10/29 Bout

By Rey Colon

The card being staged by PR Best Boxing Promotions in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico on October 29th was hit with a tough blow. Former WBO welterweight champion, Carlos "El Indio" Quintana, suffered an injury in training and he's forced to withdraw from the scheduled fight with Jorge 'Destroyer' Melendez.

"Quintana suffered an injury that will keep him away for two to three weeks. No way are we going to expose him to a fight with an injury. We know the importance of winning that fight, and the WBO promised that he would receive a title shot at 154 pounds if he won, so going in there injured would be irresponsible," said Quintana's coach Jose Bonilla.

Quintana (28-3, 22 KO's) was very excited about this "new chapter" in his career at 154-pounds, after struggling for so long to make the welterweight limit.

"To be clear, it's not that we don't want to fight Melendez. 'El Indio' was preparing to do the same thing that he did to Paul Williams. But we are not just going to take a risk like that. When he fully recovers, we'll be ready for Melendez or whoever," Bonilla said.

Quintana should just hang them up.He got stopped by fraud berto at 147,154 isn't going to do him a favor.Never the less the quality opponents he's been fighting lately.
