 Adam LopezThis past Saturday night in his hometown of San Antonio, undefeated Super Bantamweight contender Adam Lopez (14-0, 7 KO’s) scored a 2nd round stoppage over former world champion Erik Aiken in a bout that took place at the AT & T Center.

Lopez is promoted by GH3 Promotions.

Lopez dominated the action as he took the fight to the former champion, finally stopping Aiken at 2:09 of round two.

“I was very excited, and we executed the game-plan,” said Lopez, who celebrated his 25th birthday on fight night.

“I am happy to have that win in San Antonio. It’s my hometown, and it’s a great place to be. I wish I was on later in the card, but I am happy to get the stoppage win.”

Aiken, who was a Featherweight world champ, is the biggest name on the Lopez’ resume to date.

“He is a former world champion and even though he hasn’t fought at the world championship level in a while, a win is a win.”

Lopez will kick off what he believes will be a huge 2016 with a nationally televised bout in February.

“I am headlining ShoBox on February 12th. It will be my first headliner. After that, I hope that I could be in a line for a world title opportunity. I am ranked number-seven by the WBA, but if that isn’t next after the ShoBox fight, we will wait for our opportunity.”

When asked if he indulged in any birthday / knockout win celebrations, Lopez was busy with his family and fans.

“I really didn’t even eat. Let alone eat any cake. I was busy thanking my family and fans. I got the best present anyway, and that is to be able to do what I love to do on my birthday and that is fight and win!”
