Lopez beats late sub by quick TKO

Juan Manuel Lopez TKO1 Giovanni Andrade... Juan Manuel Lopez, who represented Puerto Rico in the Olympic Games 2004, dispatched Brazilian veteran Giovanni Andrade to the 2:59 of the first round, sending him to the ground with a combination. Andrade, a late replacement, claimed the last blow illegally landed on the back of his head. When Andrade indicated that he could not continue, the referee declared Lopez the winner by technical knockout. Lopez is now 18-0, with 16 KOs, and is rapidly moving up the list of 122-pound contenders. In the co-feature of the Puerto Rican show, Roman Martinez scored a victory by third-round technical knockout over Gerald Trazancos. source: el nuevo dia
