Carlos Quintana Knocks Out Deandre Latimore in Six

By Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Former welterweight champion Carlos Quintana (29-3, 23KOs) knocked out Deandre Latimore (23-4, 17KOs) in the sixth round of a junior middleweght fight. Quintana captures the vacant NABO championship.

Quintana used his fire and experience to take the early rounds and by the fifth he was punishing Latimore with crisp combinations against the ropes. Latimore was bothered by a cut that he suffered above his left eye in the second round.

In the sixth round, Quintana battered Latimore with a series of punches to send him crashing down to the mat and he was unable to beat the count as referee Kenny Bayless waved it off.

[B][I]Good win for Quintana especially by KO, ¿but championship material? Nah!! But neither is Canelo so Quintana would most likely end up as Canelo's next opponent.. But I would rather see Lara beat the S H I T out of…

Quinatana fought good, but even in this win I could tell he's near retirement. Good win though.

I didn't see the fight,i watched CANELO and COTTO but not the undercards...anyway i'm happy for CARLOS QUINTANA;i remembered LATIMORE vs CORY so i believed QUINTANA should have had a tough night after all this time outside the ring...congrats QUINTANA!!!
