resh off his revitalizing victory over DeAndre Latimore as part of the Mayweather-Cotto undercard on May 5, at the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, NV, Puerto Rico's Carlos "El Indio" Quintana is ready to take down Mexico's next rising Golden Boy, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, who holds the WBC junior middleweight title. With no set opponent being named yet as a replacement to take on Alvarez in his upcoming defense on September 15 (Mexican Independence Day), former WBO welterweight world champion Quintana is looking to throw his name into the hat. Canelo's original opponent, Paul "The Punisher" Williams, was forced to pull out after tragically suffering career-ending injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident. Quintana, 29-3, 23 KOs, is hoping the young Mexican champion will be willing to put his belt on the line against him, in what would be a classic Mexican vs. Puerto Rican matchup.
