|ONTARIO, CA (November 21, 2022) – This past Friday on Thompson Boxing’s “Path to Glory” event at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA, welterweight Louie Lopez (13-1-1, 4 KOs), of Corona, Ca, defeated Adrian Gutierrez (12-1-1, 6 KOs) of Chula Vista, Ca, by way of majority decision.
Both fighters had their moments throughout the fight, but it was Lopez who was landing harder punches. Every round was close, but Lopez outworked Gutierrez for a majority of the scheduled 8-round bout. Lopez’ hand speed was a major factor as he landed his flurries with precise accuracy. Scorecards read 80-72, 79-73, and 76-76.
“Winning this fight against another undefeated prospect, my third in a row, has got my confidence level to an all time high,” said Lopez. “I knew if I stuck to my game plan and just boxed, I would come out on top. I’m hoping I’ll be making my entrance into the top fifteen of one of the sanctioning organizations, with the hopes of fight for a regional title next year.”
