José Manuel "Josesito" López (born July 19, 1984 in Riverside, California) is an American professional boxer of Mexican descent who is currently fighting in the Light Welterweight and Welterweight divisions. López was the North American Boxing Federation light welterweight champion and the WBC Silver welterweight champion.
NABF Light Welterweight Championship
On January 28, 2011 López took out undefeated Michael Dallas, Jr. by knockout in the seventh round, to win the North American Boxing Federation Light Welterweight Championship. The bout was televised on ESPN's Friday Night Fights.
Lopez was originally scheduled to fight Kendall Holt in a defense of his title sometime in 2012, but Holt pulled out of the fight. Victor Ortiz was in need of an opponent after his scheduled opponent for June 23, 2012, Andre Berto, failed a drug test which scuttled their rematch for the interim WBC title. Lopez stepped up to face Ortiz and defeated him by technical knockout in the tenth round. During the ninth round, Lopez connected with a punch to Ortiz's jaw that broke it on impact and rendered him unable to continue.
