Herrera, Lopez victorious

Big Joe Miranda

By Francisco Salazar at ringside

Back in action for the first time since his split decision defeat to former world champion Mike Anchondo last December, rising junior welterweight Mauricio Herrera (14-1, 7 KOs) scored a fifth round TKO over veteran Efren Hinojosa (30-8-1, 17 KOs) on Friday night at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California. Herrera was in command throughout the fight and got the win when Hinojosa couldn’t come out for round six due to injured left hand.
Fighting at welterweight poundage, junior welterweight Patrick Lopez won an eight round unanimous decision over Cristian Favela. Lopez (19-2, 11 KO s) was too quick for Favela, scoring with short right hooks and straight left hands to the head. Favela (18-25-6, 9 KO s) pressed the action as the bout progressed, but was not able to match Lopez punch for punch. All three judges scored the bout 80-72 in favor of Lopez.

Featherweight Efrain Esquivias won a four round unanimous decision over Danny Pantoja. Esquivias (8-0, 5 KO s) was too quick for Pantoja, landing lead right and left hands to the head. Esquivias had Pantoja (0-3-2) hurt, but could not put the gutsy Pantoja away. All three judges had Esquivias winning the fight 40-36.

Heavyweight Enrique Lobatos (1-0-1) won a four round unanimous decision over Charles Tucker (1-1, 1 KO). Tucker started strong in the first round, but looked lethargic and tired the rest of the way. Lobatos came forward, throwing punches as Tucker covered up. All three judges scored the bout in favor of Lobatos, with scores of 39-37, 39-37, and 40-36.

Featherweight Abraham Lopez (11-0, 9 KOs) blitzed Jason Rorie (5-7-2, 2 KOs) in 2:18 of the first round.
