The hometown crowd came out to see Josesito Lopez, the Riverside Rocky, do some damage to Andre Berto Friday night at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California, but an energized Berto sent them home disappointed with a sixth-round knockout.

Lopez started out deftly avoiding Berto’s jab, but a fourth-round flurry in a neutral corner seemed to slow Lopez, as a cut developed under his right eye. The damage proved to be too much, and Berto capitalized two rounds later. 

Berto sent Lopez to the deck in the sixth round, but Lopez climbed up off the mat. It would be a short-lived try at a rally, as Berto connected with another right hand that put Lopez down for good at 1:03 of the sixth.

“Josesito’s a tough kid,” Berto said after the fight. “I knew he was in front of his home crowd, he was going to come out and go bombs away, so I just took my time and kept working the jab.”
