Gerry PeÃ±alosa was beaten by WBO super bantamweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez via TKO at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.
PeÃ±alosaâ€™s trainer Freddie Roach decided to stop the fight between rounds nine and ten. “He [Lopez] is just too strong, overpowering,” said Roach.
The undefeated Lopez (25-0-0, 23 KOs) punished the Penalosa all throughout the fight landing 444 punches out of 1,020 thrown. PeÃ±alosa, who held the WBC super flyweight title and is the reigning WBO bantamweight champion, dropped to 54-7-0 36KOs.
