Mora's win is the biggest for any fighter from "The Contender" series and proves he belongs in the ring with world class fighters. Predictably, Mora called out Oscar De La Hoya - who is in the market for an opponent - after the fight. Forrest said he plans to go back to the drawing board and will continue his career.
On the undercard, Paul Williams won back the WBO welterweight title with a first round TKO of Carlos Quintana. When they met in February, Quintana outworked Williams for a unanimous decision shocker. Williams wasn't about to let the same thing happen this time and came out aggressively from the opening bell. Williams dropped Quintana with a flurry midway through the first. Quintana got to his feet but only lasted another 18 seconds before another flurry put him down again. Referee Eddie Claudio waved off the fight as soon as Quintana went down for the second time.
