” With all that hoopla surrounding his ring return, I am afraid Money Mayweather might just stink up the joint and get on his bicycle and pot shot Victor Ortiz to death,” said Big Steve as he swallowed a big bite of a Bad Boy sub we both ordered at Mario’s Italian Deli on Broadway:” Better tell me about our local boy, Josesito Lopez who will open up the show. Have you ever seen him fight?”

 Riverside’s Josesito Lopez has come up the professional ranks the hard way learning the ropes while fighting tough fights on club shows at Inland Empire of Southern California.


“I’ve got a lot of experience here in my back yard,” said twenty eight years old Lopez when I caught up with him on Friday during one of those shows inCorona:” I am fromRiverside. I fought inCoronaandRiversidefor a lot of years. This is definitely where my roots started from.”


 Since scoring a first round knock out over Allen Litzau in his professional debut in February of 2003 Josesito Lopez has amassed a record of 29 wins, 3 losses and 17 knock outs. Young veteran fighter is ready for a big stage.


“I got a big fight with Jessie Vargas, a tough, good fighter,” said Lopez about his September 17th showdown with an undefeated prospect fromLas Vegas:” So we are going in there 110 percent. We are ready for it. My trainer, Henry Ramirez, we have been training for a while now. We are in great shape and I just can’t wait to get in there.”
