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…Comment by LeadUppercut on 02-18-2011
