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, December 3.
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."
