Las Vegas, Sep 17:  Saul “Canelo” Alvarez stopped Josesito Lopez late in the fifth round Saturday night, defending his WBC super welterweight title with a relentless display of power by the 22-year-old Mexican champion.




Alvarez (41-0-1, 30 KOs) ended Lopez's dreams of a second upset victory this year by knocking down his 12-to-1 underdog opponent in the second, third and fourth rounds.

Another series of relentless combinations finally forced referee Joe Cortez to step in, sending Alvarez to his 37th consecutive victory.

Alvarez dropped Lopez with body shots in the second and third rounds while also absorbing everything Lopez (30-5) could throw at him with barely a flinch.

Alvarez knocked down Lopez with another combination with 15 seconds left in the fourth.
