Shah tried to use his height and long reach to keep the shorter Quarles at bay. However, Quarles was able to figure a way inside and landed some solid overhand right hands that sent Shah to the corner. To his credit, Shah never went down and didn't seem hurt. However, Shah did not return back anything during the flurry and referee Joe Cooper stopped the contest at 2:41 of the round.
With the win, Quarles is now 11-2-1, four KO's. Shah is now 5-3, three KO's.
