“I was not going to be denied tonight,” Quintero said.

“I had a great training camp and all the hard work paid off. Sabaupan was a worthy opponent, but my will and determination to win in front of my people was the driving force for me tonight. I’m very excited for my team because we are on a mission to win a world title together. And now I am the mandatory challenger to face Miguel Vazquez.

“I’ll be ready for war when we fight.”

Promoter Gary Shaw commented: “Marvin is ready for a world title shot and tonight he proved he has what it takes to be a champion. He’s a big puncher and his power is visible as he has won by knockout in his last five fights. I’ll be in conversation next week with the IBF to see if we can make the Vazquez fight. I know Quintero wants that fight.

“His dream of becoming a world champion is right around the corner.”
