Quintana May Target Trout Bout, Discusses Paul Williams

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Former welterweight champion Carlos "El Indio" Quintana (29-3, 23KOs), who in 2008 became the first fighter to defeat a heavily favored Paul Williams, was shocked and upset with the news of Williams' motorcycle accident, which left the boxer paralyzed from the waist down.

Quintana won a twelve round decision over Williams in February 2008 to capture the WBO's title at 147-pounds. He lost the title in rematch, when Williams stopped him in the first round on June 7th of the same year.

The two of them became good friends years later. Williams used Quintana as a key sparring partner in two of his training camps.

"I feel very sorry. God has control over everything and I hope that he can recover. Paul is my personal friend and although we fought twice, I helped him in preparing for two fights, including one that he had with Sergio 'La Maravilla' Martinez. I'm sad about all of this. He is a good guy and a great person. I'm really shocked with this news. It is a rather delicate situation," Quintana said to Carlos Narvaez.

Quintana returned to the fold with a sixth round stoppage of Deandre Latimore of the May 5th Floyd Mayweather-Miguel Cotto pay-per-view. Reportedly the Puerto Rican boxer is targeting a potential fight with WBA "regular" 154-pound champion Austin Trout, who faces Delvin Rodriguez on June 2.

What about Lara? He needs an opponent for this summer. Lol Lara mentions everybody and nobody mentions him. Seems like thr only option out there is Molina. Its a logical one but DeCubas doesnt want it. :lol1:

It's always cool to hear how former opponents become friends after battle. Not sure Quintana should risk a fight with Trout. I think he should go for broke and chase a Canelo bout. Worst case he loses and gets a…
