On Saturday night, rising prospect-turned-contender Teofimo Lopez reminded everyone why he’s one of the emerging forces of the lightweight division with a brutal seventh round knockout over former two-time title challenger Diego Magdaleno.

Lopez (12-0, 10 KO’s) delivered a pair of left hooks in the aforementioned seventh that put the courageous Magdaleno (31-3, 13 KO’s) down and out, as the referee didn’t need to bother to count.

There has been a lot going on in the lives of former world title challenger Diego Magdaleno and former titlist Nonito Donaire.

On April 13th, Donaire would drop a unanimous decision to Cuban stylist Guillermo Rigondeaux inside of the Radio City Music Hall in New York. Despite a 10th round knockdown, Donaire had tremendous difficulty with Rigondeaux’s excellent defense and sharp counter-punching from his southpaw stance as he failed to get into an offensive rhythm.

Following his defeat, Donaire (31-2, 20 KO’s), would undergo surgery on his right shoulder and is focusing much of his attention on the upcoming birth of his first child with his wife Rachel.

Magdaleno (23-1, 9 KO’s) was last seen inside of the ropes on April 6th in Macau, China, as he dropped a hotly-contested 12-round split-decision loss to Puerto Rico’s Ramon ‘Rocky’ Martinez in his bid for the WBO junior lightweight championship. Magdaleno was dropped in the fourth round yet gave a solid account of himself.
