Highly regarded featherweight prospect Abraham Lopez will return to action against Puerto Rican native Daniel Lorenzana, tonight, April 17, as one of the feature bouts at “Lopez vs. Lopez", an evening of world class professional boxing presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, CA.
The all action 21 year old Lopez, fighting out of his hometown of La Puente, CA, has raised his record to 6-0 with five knockouts since turning professional in March of 2008. In his last bout, on February 27, the first under the Thompson Boxing Promotions banner, Lopez knocked out Manuel Sarabia in the second round.
The 27 year old Lorenzana, now fighting out of Miami, FL, brings a record of 4-4-1 (2) into the scheduled six round battle.
Said Frank Espinoza, manager of Lopez, “Abraham has truly improved since turning pro a year ago, he’s much more aggressive and has done a great job of sitting down on his punches. This is his fourth six rounder and we’re looking to keep his busy in 2009 and hopefully work up to eight rounders later this year.”
“Lopez vs. Lopez" is headlined by a junior welterweight showdown between Southern California natives Josesito Lopez and Patrick Lopez.
