Adam “Blunose” Lopez, the action star from Glendale, California, did it again. Lopez (14-2, 6 KOs) won a 10-round majority decision over the Robert Garcia-trained Louie Coria (12-3, 7 KOs) in a battle of California natives.
Lopez, who was coming off a valiant effort in a TKO loss to Oscar Valdez, won the last two rounds on two of the judges’ scorecards to pull out the win.
“That was my toughest fight to date. I used to say my fight with Jean Carlos Rivera was my toughest fight, but this one was definitely my toughest fight,” Lopez said. “Listen, I want to fight anyone Top Rank puts in front of me. This was a great, close fight, and I have the utmost respect for Louie Coria.”
