Juan Manuel Lopez KOs Wilfredo Gomez, Then the Real Fight Begins

Fight fans in San Juan, Puerto Rico got more than they bargained for on Saturday night at Coliseo Roberto Clemente. Juan Manuel Lopez (35-5, 32KOs) stopped Wilfredo Gomez (21-7-1, 19KOs) in round 11 and then decided to throw punches at Gomez’s corner man, who entered the ring after the referee stopped the bout. The two traded several blows before it was broken up and Lopez appeared to be off balance after the exchange in which he was caught twice by a bare knuckle left hand. Fans began to fling bottles into the ring but before the stadium could completely erupt, Lopez and Gomez embraced in a show of good sportsmanship, settling the crowd.
