WBC welterweight champion Andre Berto (26-0, 20 KOs) scored an eighth round TKO over former WBO champ Carlos Quintana (27-3, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida. Berto was too fast and strong for the game Quintana and referee Tommy Kimmons waved it off after a sustained barrage by Berto. Time was 2:16. Kimmons deducted a point from Quintana in round three for a rabbit punch. The card was billed as “Fighting for Haiti” with a portion of the proceeds from tickets sold going to benefit those affected by the recent earthquake in Berto’s native Haiti.

Earlier, WBA junior featherweight champion Celestino Caballero (34-2, 23 KOs) moved up to featherweight to dominate previously unbeaten WBA #2 contender Daud Yordan (25-1, 19 KOs). Caballero, trained by Jeff Mayweather, dropped Yordan at the end of round two and dominated the fight, tripling the punch output of Yordan en route to a twelve round unanimous decision by scores of 119-108, 120-107, 118-108. Caballero wins the vacant WBA interim featherweight title.
