 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.
