Junior welterweight Patrick “El Elegante” Lopez (18-2, 12 KOs) outpointed 41-year-old, four-time world title challenger John “The Eastern Beast” Brown (24-17-2, 11 KOs) over eight mostly dull rounds on Friday night at the sold out Ontario Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California. Lopez did his best to press the action and finally caught the cutesy Brown with a vicious body shot with a minute remaining final round, dropping Brown for a 9 count and very nearly knocking him out, attacking until the very last second. Scores were 79-72, 80-71 and 80-71.
