Quinones Wins Pro Debut In
Co-promoters Gary Shaw of Gary Shaw Productions and Leon
Margules of Warriors Boxing wish to congratulate Cuban
former world amateur champion Vilier Quinones for his
explosive debut performance as a professional last Friday,
Fighting in front of a big crowd at the Magic City Casino
"Cuba vs. the World" event in Miami, Florida, future super
middleweight star Quinones dispatched formerly undefeated
New Yorker Abdellah Smith in 19 seconds of unleashed fury.
"We warned everyone what this kid can do and now you see we
weren't kidding," said Shaw, post-fight. "He just moved in
on his opponent and threw four or five bombs to the head and
body and the referee had already seen enough. That was it."
"That was the exact right time to stop it," added Margules.
"They told me Abdellah's eyes were rolling back in his head
when the referee jumped in. Can you imagine the kind of
power this kid is packing in his gloves to do that to an
in-shape opponent that quickly? He's something special."
