Gerry Peñalosa was beaten by WBO super bantamweight champion Juan Manuel Lopez via TKO at the Coliseo Ruben Rodriguez in Bayamon, Puerto Rico.
Peñalosa’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. Peñalosa, who held the WBC super flyweight title and is the reigning WBO bantamweight champion, dropped to 54-7-0 36KOs.
