Chris Lopez Outlasts Diamond Baier In Four-Round War

By Tim Kudgis

The main event was a war and the co-feature saw a stunning upset - the perfect way to top a full night of action Saturday evening at the Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona.

In the evening's main event, Chris “God’s Warrior” Lopez won a four-round decision over Diamond Baier in a sensational brawl that had the crowd on its feet. 

Lopez was getting the better of the action until suffering a knockdown at the end of round two. Having time to recover in between rounds, Lopez resumed his role as the aggressor to edge out the last two rounds. Baier, from Chicago, had his moments but they were not enough to preserve the early lead.  

All three judges scored the bout 38-37 in favor of Chris Lopez, who now improves to 5-0. Baier dips below .500, his record now 2-3-1.

The co-main event matched undefeated prospect Thomas Valdez against pro debuting Jesus Aguinaga. 

Valdez - trained by Roger Mayweather and believed to be the more polished of the two - suffered a surprise opening round knockdown. Aguinaga’s awkward style confused Valdez, who had no answer for his opponent's aggression. 

Valdez unable to find his groove dropped a unanimous decision 39-37 across the board. Aguinaga is now 1-0, while Valdez falls to 3-1.

Victor Castro moved to (7-0) with a dominating performance against Corey Muldrew who dropped to (0-2).  The faster Castro continuously beat Muldrew to the punch and did not allow Muldrew to land too many clean shots.  One judge saw it 39-37 while the other two scored the fight 40-36 in favor of Victor Castro.

Carlos Castro had the most dominant performance of the night against Angel Gonzalez. Castro’s skill set was on a different level leaving Gonzalez unable to take any sort of control over the 4 rounds.  The judges cored the bout 40-36 across the board for Carlos Castro (2-0) dropping Angel Gonzalez to (0-3).

Other Pro Results:
Paul Romero (1-0-1) Majority Draw 4 Jensen Ramirez (2-1-2)
Keith Bush (1-0) KO2 Douglas Jackson (0-1)
