Carlos Quintana Praises Danny Garcia For The Khan Win

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Carlos Quintana was very impressed with Danny Garcia's four round stoppage of British superstar Amir Khan. Garcia (24-0, 15KOs), now the WBC/WBA champion at 140, was more or less dominated in the first two rounds, but he changed the entire fight with a single left hook in the third round. He dropped Khan three times before the fight was stopped. Quintana sees Garcia as the new star on the Puerto Rican scene.

"Now [Garcia] is in the big leagues. [The win] was tremendous. Even I was surprised. Honestly, I had never seen him fight before and I never thought he would beat Amir Khan. Garcia looked great, super strong and in tremendous shape. Amir Kahn did not affect him [in the first two rounds]... and then came the left hook, and it was brutal," Quintana said to Jose Sanchez.
