Oxnard’s Hugo Centeno Jr., 20, controlled the bout since its inception with his height and reach advantage. He peppered Lopez with rangy jabs as the Idaho native retreated in the opening rounds. Round number three saw Lopez make a futile attempt to alter the trajectory of the fight by forcing the action and looking sloppy at the same time. Centeno Jr. quickly regained control of the bout in the following round; albeit, Lopez would make Centeno Jr. earn his keep for the remainder of the bout.

Hugo Centeno Jr. went on to survive a slugfest in round six. The Oxnard fighter proved he could fight inside and even showcased a flashy right uppercut that this writer saw land at least eight times in the final round. All three judges ringside went on to tally the bout 60-54 in favor of the young promising prospect.

He then went on to stun Orange County’s Cifuentes with a left hook at the end of the same round. The following round saw much of the same which forced ref Wayne Hedgpeth to halt the action at the 1:33 mark of round number two of the scheduled 4 round super featherweight fight.
