Freddy McPheerson -
"I had three fights with Quintana...all of which could have gone either way....so I know him VERY well...if Judah boxes smart and brings the best of his speed and power at the right times, he can beat Quintana...just like I would if we were to tangle again...."
The CEO on behalf of the late Carlos Maussa -
"I remember after Maussa lost a close one to Quintana, he told me Quintana was the future of the league...they gained a strong mutual respect for each other and became fast friends after that fight....sadly, it was a friendship that didn't last too long.......(gets teary eyed).............yeah............anyway.......these are two legendary fighters from The Golden Era of our league....they've both done and seen it all....so I don't know....I can't see a clear winner or edge....might put alot of dough on the Draw....."

This fight was a long time in the making. Quintana has the ability to outbox Judah and should win a decision.

Quintana won a close MD over Zab......Quintana landed more punches but Zab landed the harder ones.

Why was a rematch scheduled for this weekend?
Oct 28 2008, 12:00 PM
Well BJH, the champion was set to defend his title....and every decent contender besides a few like Herms Franca, Hatton, Jabdiel Judah were already set to fight. So it was only right to make this fight unless it was tune ups...Judah-Quintana are old warriors who have already sealed their legacy and this is simply a rematch to a great first fight

Quintana got a draw in his last title fight vs Ngodjo and didnt get a rematch of course.
Oct 28 2008, 01:40 PM
Quintana win or lose vs. Zab should get the title next....Remember, Zab is open to fight anyone, anytime. Zab is my favorite fighter ever but I feel he is close to retirement and i want to see him fighting the best. I hope Quintana doesnt mind
