It was all action, all the time in the opener of tonight’s Top Rank card headlined by Jessie Magdaleno and Yenifel Vicente.
Featherweight contender Adam Lopez (14-2, 6 KOs) moved back into the winners circle with a victory over Luis Coria (12-3, 7 KOs). But it wasn’t easy for him to do so. Coria came into the contest swinging from the opening bell. It didn’t take Lopez long to realize that he had a dog fight on his hands and met fire with fire. He quickly adapted and pushed his man back. Much of the contest played out in a phone booth with both men having their moments.
In the end, Lopez did just enough to leave out the back door with a majority decision victory. The judges scoring the contest gave in their scorecards which read 95-95 while the remaining two judges had it 96-94 in favor of Lopez.
