Josesito Lopez completely dominated veteran welterweight Francisco « Chia » Santana on Spence-Garcia’s pay-per-view card today, scooping a stop win in 10th place. Round that came too late for the taste of many observers.
Lopez (38-8, 21 KO’s) dropped Santana on the first, ninth and tenth rounds, and after the ninth it seemed like everyone but referee Neal Young and Santana’s corner had seen enough. Even after he got up from the rain, Santana (25-9-1, 12 KO) was staggered again at the end of the round and wobbled so hard in his corner that the crowd in the AT&T stadium could even be heard reacting to him after the Had panned the camera away.
But Santana’s corner, led by « Hoss » Janik, sent the 34-year-old into the 10. Round and gave him one last chance in a fight where he’d lost every single round and received a pretty large penalty. Referee Young stopped the fight 1:22 in 10. Round after another knockdown and punishment when fighting resumed.
It’s the fifth loss in six fights and three in a row for Santana, while Lopez takes his second straight win after losing to Keith Thurman in January. 2019. And that’s the level Lopez hopes to reach again in 2021.
« I deserve a big fight and I want a world title, » Lopez said after the fight.
