In a bizarre, or perhaps apropos sequence of events, Tony Lopez had two chances to lose his International Boxing Federation junior lightweight title: at the weigh-in and in the ring. He escaped the first but couldn't the second, losing his 130-pound championship by a unanimous decision to South African Brian Mitchell. On the undercard, former World Boxing Assn. welterweight champion Mark Breland was knocked out in the sixth round by Mexican veteran Jorge Vaca and announced his retirement.
