Keith Thurman dominates veteran Carlos Quintana

November 24, 2012

Ontario, Calif. -- Rising star Keith "One Time" Thurman (19-0, 18 KOs) continued his climb up the boxing ranks, delivering an impressive knockout win over veteran Carlos Quintana (29-4) on the undercard of the Andre Berto-Robert Guerrero fight at Citizens Business Bank Arena.

Thurman has been quickly developing a reputation as a fearsome power puncher -- a reputation that seemed to carry itself into the ring Saturday night if one were to read into the highly cautious approach of Quintana.

In Round One, Quintana immediately began circling Thurman, wary of his power. When he did throw his jab it was delivered in a pawing, non-committal manner, perhaps out of fear that he might get caught in return.

Unfortunately for Quintana, his fears were quickly realized.

The stalking Thurman nailed Quintana with a brutal left hook to the body that put him on the canvas. Quintana struggled to make the ten count, finishing the first round in full retreat.

In Round Four, Thurman struck again, hitting Quintana with an uppercut and a follow-up blow that caused Quintana to stumble. Thurman then continued his attack with a series of vicious shots to the head that forced the referee to call the fight.

After the fight, Thurman said that he would be calling out "the world of boxing," and that he would be willing to fight at both "147 and 154" pounds. Fans will be looking forward to seeing more of his continued progress.
