Lopez wins on return to ring

  •  

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.
