Lopez Is the Winner on Technical Decision

October 02, 1987

Hector Lopez of Glendale won the Stroh's featherweight boxing tournament Thursday night, beating previously undefeated Georgie Navarro of Vineland, N.J., on a technical decision when Lopez was butted in the second round and declared unable to continue.

Lopez, 126, whose only professional loss was to Navarro, 125, on a 12-round decision in an ESPN featherweight title bout at Atlantic City, N.J., in August 1986, was ahead on points when the fight was stopped.

Lopez (15-1) won $75,000; Navarro (16-1) earned $10,000.
