Quintana out of FNF main event on Jan. 16

The injury bug has bitten Carlos Quintana, the former welterweight titleholder who beat Paul Williams last February, and he's been forced to pull out of his January 16 Friday Night Fights main event with Eromosele Albert.

In Quintana's place will be Ossie Duran, who fought Albert to a draw last September at New York City's Hammerstein Ballroom. The two will now meet again at Mallory Square in Key West.

Both are also former opponents of rising junior middleweight star James Kirkland. We all remember Kirkland destroying Albert in the first round last May, but Duran took Kirkland to a ten-round decision in June 2007. He then sat out for 15 months before taking the fight with Albert.

Considering the short notice, it's a nice replacement by ESPN, and they'll also be featuring James McGirt, Jr., in action against veteran Angel Hernandez.
