Taking command in the second round, Ncita (121) maintained his grip on his challenger right up until the finish, showing good hand-speed and power as combinations ripped into the unfortunate Lopez (121). The end came after a tremendous overarm right that exploded on Lopez’s jaw sent him crashing to the canvas, where he was counted out five seconds before the end of the eighth.
