Cintron-Quintana foes named

By Lee Bates

The opponents for former welterweight world champions Kermit “Killer” Cintron (31-2-1, 27 KOs) and Carlos “El Indio” Quintana (26-2, 20 KOs) have been officially been named for the October 24th edition of DiBella Entertainment’s Broadway Boxing series. Site of the event will be the Coliseo Roberto Clemente in San Juan, Puerto Rico. PR Best Boxing Promotions (Ivan & Peter Rivera) and DiBella Entertainment will promote. Cintron will take on Juliano Ramos (15-2, 12 KOs) of Brazil in a 10 round main event. Quintana will take on former world title challenger and fellow Puerto Rican Jesse Feliciano (15-7-3, 9 KOs).

Cintron shocked many with his upset of highly touted and then unbeaten contender Alfredo Angulo in his last bout which was a WBC light middleweight title eliminator. Cintron will drop back down to welterweight for his bout with Ramos.

Quintana pulled of a monumental upset of then unbeaten WBO welterweight champion Paul “The Punisher” Williams in 2008. Feliciano ironically was defeated by Cintron in his only world title opporunity. He also has pulled off some upset victories of his own over former world champion Vince Phillips and former world title challengers Alfonso Gomez and Delvin Rodriguez.

Eight additional bouts are being scheduled. Tickets can be purchased at TicketCenter online at (www.tcpr.com) or by calling (787 )792-5000 Tickets are priced between $20 and $150.
