Miguel Vazquez-Marvin Quintero Purse Bid on Sept. 18

By Ernest Gabion

Contrary to some of the published reports, promoter Gary Shaw disputes that Marvin Quintero (25-3, 21KOs) is fighting IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (31-3, 13KOs) on September 29th in Tijuana, Mexico.

Quintero is the mandatory challenger to Vazquez. According to Shaw, he rejected an offer from Vazquez's team and requested an immediate purse bid. The IBF has scheduled that purse bid for September 18th.

"The Vazquez people made an offer that I did not accept on behalf of Marvin Quintero, so I asked the IBF to call for an immediate purse bid. That purse bid will be on September 18th. I'll make my bid and hopefully I win it. If I win that bid, that fight will go on as the opening fight on HBO on October 27th. I have a tripleheader on that date. If I don't win that bid, it will go to Mexico," Shaw said.

[QUOTE=Corelone;12496917]This is more BS. Quintero gets Knocked out by Attah, comes back and beats a nobody named Al and now he's a mandatory? It's the politics and manipulation that hurt the sport. Al Supabupa shows up with a gaudy home…
