one and two. His power was evident, as was his speed. Quintana used the
ring to size up his younger opponent. In round three he began open up.
His combinations weren’t powerful, but kept finding Latimore’s chin.
Quintana kept using angles and finding a home for his left hand. Rounds
four and five found Quintana even more aggressive.
