The Moment: Andre Berto vs. Josesito Lopez

The Moment for Andre Berto came in the sixth round Friday night, when his sustained jab set up a crunching right hand that culminated a four-punch sequence and drove Josesito Lopez to the canvas for the first of two knockdowns at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.

Lopez was able to rise and continue, but only for an instant before Berto was on him again, blasting him with another solid right that caused referee Raul Caiz Jr. to step in and signal the end to the fight.

It was a strong showing for Berto (30-2, 23 KOs) in his second fight following right shoulder surgery in August 2013, against an experienced fighter in Lopez (33-7, 19 KOs), who was fighting before a partisan crowd near his hometown of Riverside.
