Juanma, Penalosa speak!

By Lee Bates

Quick quotes from post-fight presser:
Juan Manuel Lopez: Penalosa is a very tough fighter as I fully expected him to be. This was a very hard earned victory. My promoters will decide what is next for me and I will be ready for whoever they put in front of me.
Gerry Penalosa: I gave my absolute best tonight. Lopez was the better man tonight and I congratulate him.
Freddie Roach: I thought Lopez would slow down after the 4th round since he threw so many punches but he didn’t. I had told Gerry going into the 9th round that if he wasn’t able to hurt Lopez then I was going to stop the fight because he needed to hurt him or knock Lopez out at that point. Lopez I think is the best fighter at 122 pounds.
