K.O. Artist, Abe Lopez, Set To Return To Form!
By Sig Guillermo
Thompson Boxing Promotions presents: “New Blood”: the spectacular April 29th co-feature to Herrera VS. Favela, as undefeated knockout artist, Abraham “Chamaco” Lopez (13W-0-10KO’s) of La Puente, California, faces former Golden Glove Amateur champion, Aaron “El Gavilan” Garcia (10W-1L-2KO’s-2D) of Vista, California in a scheduled six round contest at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California.
Infamous for his love of knockouts, Abraham Lopez looks to further his status as the top tier featherweight in the division as he pursues his fourteenth professional win against the former 2003 Pan American Game Silver Medalist in a long-awaited slugfest.
The twenty-eight year old Garcia vows to take apart the young prospect’s unblemished resume with a re-invigorated work ethic and more determined frame of mind. Since returning to the ring in 2006 after suffering his only defeat to seasoned veteran, Saul Ochoa, “El Gavilan” has remained unbeaten. He has since strung up five victories, including a four round majority decision upset win over Tijuana, Mexico’s Alejandro “Alex” Lopez on February 26, 2011 at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Born in La Puente, California, Abraham “Chamaco” Lopez has come a long way since making his professional debut on March 15, 2008 with a first round annihilation of Lancaster, California’s Alberto Soto. His style continues to resonate with much promise, as he possesses heavy-hands along with the coordination and speed to match. The twenty-three year old sensation has already knocked out eight out of ten victims within just two rounds. Dangerous is an understatement for all who’ve shared the ring with him. He also looks to continue his featherweight reign in hope of a world title shot in 2011. Brace yourselves for an all-action shoot out, and may the best man win.
For more exciting fights, visit Thompson Boxing Promotions this Friday, April 29 when highly-regarded junior welterweight Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera will try to extend his three fight winning streak as he battles veteran Cristian “Filoso” Favela in the main event of “New Blood” at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, California.
