Quintana: I Hope To Take Thurman Out, Get a Title Shot
By Rey Colon
Veteran Carlos ‘The Indian’ Quintana (29-3 and 23 KO's) is very confident as he continues training for his next return on November 24, when he faces Keith Thurman (18-0, 17 KO's) at the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California. Quintana says everything is on the line in this match and a loss could signal the end of his long career. If he wins, he wants to secure a junior middleweight title shot in 2013.
“There is not break [in training]. I do not know much about [Thurman], but we are working hard to defeat him. I hope to take this boy out and then secure a fight for a world title or have something even better come up. If [I lose], then I'm going to step back. I won't want to fight any more. He's young and this is an opportunity that I accepted because I wanted to fight again this year and I didn't want to fall into a long period of inactivity. It is a good fight and it is going to be televised by HBO. But after this I want a big fight," Quintana said.

Quintana looks good in one fight and bad in another. It is hard to gauge what point of his career he is at. He does well with pressure fighters but he always fight like he is winded in the whole…Comment by nycsmooth on 10-30-2012
