Quintana Could See a Move To 160, Eyes Sergio Martinez

By Rey Colon

Although he will reappear on Friday in the junior middleweight division, Carlos 'El Indio' Quintana, a former WBO champion at 147 pounds, did not rule out a move up to middleweight noting that where he feels more comfortable because he doesn't have to drop a large amount of weight.

"At 147 pounds it was tough. At 154 I have to do a little work. If I see something good at 160 pounds, I'll go up. There I'll feel a lot stronger and faster. I'd like to fight Sergio Martinez. That's a very attractive looking fight," appropriated Quintana. "I'm going back to my roots by boxing more. That is the best style."

I still like Quintana, but I don't know about this fight. That earlier suggestion of Canelo is a better idea, although maybe I would like to see the kid develop a couple more steps before jumping in with experienced guys…

slow down people. perhaps quintana should fight at 160 against anyone of note before we worry about this fight.

Sergio and quintana are the same except sergio is bigger and stronger it would be a good fight though
