|ONTARIO, CA (March 13, 2023) – This past Friday at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA on Thompson Boxing’s “Path To Glory” card, a special memorial to Ken Thompson was presented as the night was filled with many family and friends who attended and showed their respects.
In the 8-round main event, Angel Beltran (16-1, 9 KOs) defeated Louie Lopez (13-2-1, 4 KOs) by way of unanimous decision. In round one, Beltran landed a left hook to the body, sending Lopez to the canvas. Lopez got up and fought hard for the remainder of the fight. Beltran showed he was the better fighter as was landing the more powerful punches with accuracy. Scorecards read 77-74, 78-73 twice, all in favor of Beltran.
“I wanted to show everyone that I’m a real fighter with talent to become a world champion,” said Beltran. “I knew Lopez was going to be a tough challenge, but I had confidence in my ability to win the fight. I know more opportunities will come my way with hard work. This win will get me closer to a big fight, hopefully for a small title by the end of the year.”
