Ryan Martin, Pedro Duran, Seniesa Estrada Win in Los Angeles

By Francisco Salazar

The Forum, Los Angeles - Junior lightweight Pedro Duran stopped Pedro Lopez after the fourth round. Duran (14-0, 11 KOs) dropped Lopez with a left hook to the head near the end of round one. At the end of the second round, Duran dropped Lopez again, this time courtesy of a counter right cross. Lopez (6-3-1, 2 KOs) held his own and even landed a series of rights, but the amount of punishment he was receiving promoted his corner to advise referee Wayne Hedgpeth to stop the fight after the fourth round. 

Junior welterweight Ryan Martin stopped Rosbel Montoya in the fifth round. Fighting for the first time in almost a year, Martin (14-0, 9 KOs) dropped Montoya with a left-right combination to end the second round. Montoya (16-8-1, 13 KOs), who has now lost his last six bouts in a row, held his own, but was dropped with a left hook to the body midway through the fourth round. Martin ended matter at 1:51 with a barrage of punches, prompting referee Raul Caiz, Jr. to stop the bout. Martin was once signed to 50 Cent's SMS Promotions. 

Light flyweight Kenia Enriquez knocked out Amaris Quintana early in the fifth round. Enriquez (16-1, 8 KOs) dropped Quintana with a counter left hook midway through the first round. While Quintana (9-3-2, 1 KO) fought back, she was not able to defend herself from consistent straight right hands from Enriguez. After the start of the fifth round, a right hand dropped Quintana to the canvas. Referee Raul Caiz, Jr. saw enough and waved the fight over at 16 seconds. 

In the opening bout of the K2 Promotions card, flyweight Seniesa Estrada won a six round unanimous decision over Selene Lopez. Both fighters went right at it from the opening bell, but it was Estrada (6-0, 1 KO) who asserted herself throughout the fight. Lopez (3-5-3, 1 KO) did find a home for right hands to the head, that produced a noticeable lump under Estrada's eye. But Estrada landed the more telling blows, especially in the second half of the fight. All three judges scored the bout 60-54 in favor of Estrada.
