Carlos Quintana came back to the ring tonight to open the Mayweather vs Cotto PPV against Mayweather Promotions fighter Deandre Latimore, and after over a year out of the ring, dominated Latimore and stopped him in the sixth round on a series of big left hands.

Quintana (29-3, 23 KO) had his win sold by the HBO team as a big upset, but it really wasn't. Those who saw Latimore (23-4, 17 KO) in his last fight on ShoBox saw a fighter with a lot of flaws, and after a decent opening round tonight, those flaws were grossly exposed by a superior boxer who was effective both backing up and throwing, and coming hot at Latimore, who eventually couldn't handle his power or skills.

Quintana landed 48% of his power shots (64 of 132) and just plain picked Latimore apart, who couldn't build any sustained momentum and after three rounds or so, just looked lost and outclassed. Though the commentary would have led you to believe that Quintana isn't a puncher, he's got a good KO rate and neither the win nor the stoppage should be seen as unexpected, other than Latimore had the power promoter behind him tonight, and Quintana did not.
