Spinks III vs Lopez

In the co-main feature of the night on the Pochiro card, Leon Spinks III (7-0-1) fought Wilberth Lopez (2-2) at 137 pounds. Lopez picked up the decision win, with highlights from the bout showing Lopez landing multiple hard right hands, and Spinks III showing great movement but in need of more defensive work. Spinks III was knocked down twice in round 5, with both fighters also slipping once. Although round 5 was scored 10-7 by all judges, the decision seemed questionable by the fans in attendance, who scored nearly every other round for Spinks III, including the final round when Spinks III came back from the knockdowns in the previous rounds to fight hard, and probably win the round.
