Hot undefeated super bantamweight prospect Jose “Wonder Boy” Lopez (11-0, 9 KOs) scored an eighth round KO over Sergio Gomez (17-18, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Coliseo Rafael G. Amalbert in Juncos, Puerto Rico. Lopez was simply too good for Gomez, who took the fight on short notice. A left hook finished Gomez. “I feel great tonight, I learned a lot. I knew that I got him with good punches, but I didn’t want to get desperate. I knew that the KO was coming,” Wonder Boy said.
In the co-feature, undefeated lightweight Ken Alvarez (5-0-1, 3 KOs) won a hard fought six round unanimous over previously unbeaten Kevin Nieves (6-1, 3 KOs). Scores were 57-56, 58-55, 58-55. Nieves had Alvarez on the canvas and in trouble in round three.
In other results, mini flyweight prospect Angel Acosta (5-0, 4 KOs) scored a nasty fourth round TKO over the awkward southpaw Pedro Ortiz (2-2-1). Acosta dropped Ortiz three times in the fourth round.
Alberto Machado (5-0, 4 KOs) won a four round unanimous decision over José Del Valle; Yomar Alamo won a brutal first round TKO over Reymundo Santiago; Antonio Ortiz won by second round TKO over Jesus Llanos; Alex Nazario won a four round unanimous decision over Angel Velazquez; Alberto Mercado won a 6 round unanimous decision over Fauris Capellan and local favorite Josué Declet won a majority decision over Luis Hernandez.
