BAYAMON, Puerto Rico (AP) - Juan Manuel Lopez stopped Aldimar Silva Santos in the ninth round Saturday night in his first fight following a suspension for accusing a referee of having a gambling problem.
Lopez knocked Santos down with an impressive flurry with 1:04 left, and the Brazilian boxer was unable to continue.
The victory by Lopez should set up a bigger fight later this summer.
One of the names that's been floated by promoter Top Rank is Miguel Angel ``Mikey'' Garcia, who beat Salido two weeks ago by technical decision to claim the featherweight belt Lopez once owned.
