Lopez: Stoppage Was 10 Times Worse Than Maidana Loss

ONTARIO, CALIF. - The first Premier Boxing Champions (PBC) card on Spike TV delivered on it's promise to bring fight fans a great night of boxing match-ups.  The night's main event featured Andre "The Beast" Berto (30-3, 23 KOs), who recorded an impressive stoppage of Josesito "Riverside Rocky" Lopez (33-7, 19 KOs) in front of a very lively crowd at Citizens Business Bank Arena.

ANDRE BERTO

"I thought I did OK tonight. I was getting in my groove those first couple rounds, and then I realized he couldn't hurt me. Then I let my hands go.

"The jab kept him away. I was using it to beat him up and get to his face. I was catching him with the jab all night. I felt strong after that first time I knocked him down.

"Josesito is a tough fighter. He took all my jabs and more.

"This is an amazing opportunity. I can't wait for the numbers. They'll show that PBC is for real.

"I don't know what's next just yet. I'm going to relax with my family and then talk to Al Haymon and see what he has in store for me."

JOSESITO LOPEZ

"I wasn't 100% tonight. I ruined my left hand in the third round. I just wasn't at my best. I had opportunities. I just couldn't get to him.

"I wasn't doing much well for the ability that I have. I just couldn't snap off the punches that I wanted to. He was there to get hit, but I couldn't get it done.

"The first knockdown he caught me and I rolled my ankle a little, but I was fine. This stoppage was 10 times worse than the Maidana stoppage. I wasn't unstable or hurt tonight and I could have kept going.

"Berto is just tough. I didn't see anything that I couldn't beat though. If it wasn't for the stoppage then I think I could have beat him. He was resilient, but his jabs weren't great.

"I want to keep fighting the best. Losing sucks and I wasn't ready for it tonight. I bring out my best when I fight the best."

Horrible stoppage. Have rarely seen a fighter with a profile like Lopez not even given a damn count. Good fights would never happen if they get stopped like that. One of the worst stoppages I've witnessed in a long time.…
