Josesito Lopez stutters back into action

At Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, California last night, fringe world-class welterweight Josesito Lopez, 31-6 (18), returned to action by winning a technical decision after eight hard-fought rounds against veteran former world ranked contender, “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis, 24-10-2 (11).  It was only Lopez’s second fight of the year and following on the heels of three terribly hard fights for him, perhaps it was understandable that his performance was a bit flat.

For six rounds this was a straight boxing match, with Lopez unexpectedly trying to match wits with his southpaw Greek opponent.  Josesito was doing okay in this type of fight, despite being floored at the end of the third round.  He was caught on his heels by an Arnaoutis right jab whilst pressing the action and dropped to the canvas.  It had been a round which Lopez was edging, so in an instant it turned from a 10-9 Lopez round to a 10-8 round for Arnaoutis.  This, along with the pattern that the fight was taking, allied to increase Mike’s confidence and although he has been losing more than winning recently, he showed that he still has a lot of the skills that took him to a world title fight in 2006.  His footwork was excellent, as he moved nicely around Lopez, catching him coming in with crisp one-two combinations from his southpaw stance.
