Juanma sent Marquez staggering across the ring with a left hand in round three, but Marquez rocked Lopez in round four. Lopez was also deducted a point for a rabbit punch in the round by referee Tony Weeks. Lopez had the upper hand from round six on, although Marquez was still dangerous. Juanma really worked over Marquez in round eight and he didn’t come out for round nine citing an injured right shoulder.
