Dan Rafael's post-fight report:
"Golden Boy Promotions and manager Shelly Finkel have high hopes for the 19-year-old Broner, a Cincinnati native with a strong amateur background. Although he has shown some explosiveness and lots of potential in the early part of his pro career, he was lucky to escape with the majority decision against Quintero, 25. Broner didn't impress against the best opponent of his career so far. He had trouble with Quintero's movement and right hand and still fights in an amateurish style. The good news, however, is that he's still so young and has a crowd-pleasing style. But certainly there are things he can improve on in the gym." [1]

CompuBox analysis:
"In winning a disputed majority decision over Fernando Quintero, Broner was out-landed 154-83 (overall), 29-22 (jabs) and 125-61 (power). He threw 48.1 punches per round (16.3 percent below the 57.4 junior lightweight average) and landed 21.6 percent overall while an industrious Quintero landed 25.4 percent of his 75.9 punches per round. Broner connected on 28.5 percent of his power punches to Quintero's 36.2 percent, which only added to Broner's angst." [2]

Quintero took the fight on four days notice.
ESPN analyst Teddy Atlas scored the fight a draw, 76-76.
