=== Vazquez retains IBF lightweight belt ===
Verona, NY (Sports Network) - Miguel Vazquez retained his IBF lightweight
title for the fourth time with a controversial split decision victory over
Marvin Quintero at the Turning Stone Casino on Saturday night.
Vazquez (32-3, 13 KOs) won by scores of 118-110 and 116-112 with the
third judge scoring the bout 115-113 in favor of Quintero (25-4, 21 KOs) .
Quintero landed a series of harder punches, and was the aggressor throughout
the fight, but was unable to slow the mobile Vazquez, who dipped and dodged
around the ring all night.
The 25-year-old Quintero surged through the middle round, but Vazquez became
more aggressive as the fight went on and appeared to get the best of his
opponent in the later rounds.
