Carlos Quintana Ready To Do a Job on Keith Thurman

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former champion Carlos Quintana (29-3, 23 KOs) is ready to upset another young contender on Nov. 24 at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. BoxingScene.com reported last week that Quintana accepted an offer to fight undefeated Keith Thurman (18-0, 17 KOs) on HBO. The event is headlined by a welterweight battle between Robert Guerrero and Andre Berto.

Quintana is still hoping to fight WBC champion Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. He was used as an opponent for Deandre Latimore on the Miguel Cotto-Floyd Mayweather Jr. pay-per-view in May, but Quintana turned the tables on Latimore with a fifth round TKO victory. Quintana admits the Thurman fight was not exactly what he was looking for. He was offered an undercard spot on the Manny Pacquiao show on December 8th, but the fight with Thurman presented him with a better financial opportunity.

"It was not exactly the fight I was looking for because my intention was to go for a world title or at least a big name, but it was a good deal and I accepted. I want to prove that I still have a lot of boxing [left in me]. The Thurman fight is a good opportunity and represents good money. I'm at a stage in my career where waiting around doesn't hurt me that much, but at the same time I can not accept just any fight [that comes my way]," Quintana told Carlos Gonzalez.

Lets see which Quintana shows up. If it's the one that took the then young undefeated Joel Julio to school then Thurman is in trouble.
