ShoBox photos and quotes: Baha Mamadjonov upsets Angelo Santana

Baha Mamadjonov scored a big upset on last night's ShoBox, stopping touted prospect Angelo Santana.

Baha Mamadjonov

"One week notice and I win by that kind of knockout! The first couple of rounds Santana was difficult to figure out but once I did I just got more aggressive. The hard work paid off. I came to the United States to be a champion. I want to win a world title and this was the first step. I'm just starting. It's going to be one belt at a time.

"Santana hits really hard and I respect him but I could see he was getting tired in the sixth round after I hit him with a body shot."

Angelo Santana

"The referee stopped the fight. I tell you I was still in it. I landed two big left hands earlier in the round. We were in a good fight and it should have continued. Nothing against Baha, he's a good fighter, but I want a rematch.

"The last knockdown came on a slip. I slipped after throwing a punch."

Amir Imam

"I had to figure him out in the first round. I doubled up my jab in the second round and hit him with the big right that starched him. Some would say I took too big of a bite but I was composed, relaxed and knew what I had to do.

"Line ‘em up and I'll knock them down."

Jeremy Bryan

"I had a lot going on. This was my first big fight on TV since 2004. I had a good fan base that came in for the fight. I think I got a little over-anxious and it cost me but I am a warrior. I've come back before and I'll come back again."

Steve Farhood

"Both fights served as a reminder that when you're dealing with prospects nothing can be taken for granted.

"On paper the opening bout looked like a distance fight and if you had told me the main event would end in a knockout I would have been pretty certain that the winner would have been Santana. But the ShoBox mission statement is not just to advance prospects, but to occasionally expose them as well."
