Lou Moret, an old pol, sits in his office, behind his glass wall, behind his tidy desk, behind his donkeys (an Eeyore here, a burro there--the old pol is a Democrat). It's quiet and he describes his worst nightmare, which is noise. He's on a stage, in the middle of a large hall filled with thousands of people screaming. The roar is deafening. There is no scream like a fight crowd's scream; it's a rough, obliterating noise. It has blood on it.

Josesito Lopez wanted to believe his fighting heart could let him survive the heaviest punches of Marcos Maidana. That effort made for an entertaining 16-plus minutes of boxing Saturday night at StubHub Center in Carson, but the theory was flawed. The stauncher Maidana (34-3, 31 knockouts) made Riverside's Lopez (30-6) absorb too many hard right hands, and when three more struck Lopez in his corner in the sixth round, referee Lou Moret stepped in and awarded Maidana a technical-knockout victory at the 1:18 mark.
