History of Danny Lopez Boxing Career Set

Danny Lopez began his boxing career set professionally on May 27, 1971, knocking out Steve Flajole in one round at Los Angeles. He won his first 21 boxing fights in a row by knockout, in one of the longest knockout win streaks ever. During that streak, all but one of his fights were in Los Angeles, a fact which could be credited for his status in the area. The only one of his boxing fights among those 21 fights outside Los Angeles took place in Honolulu, where he beat Ushiwakamaru Harada by a knockout in three.
On January 17, 1974, Genzo Kurosaw became the first person to go the distance with Danny Lopez, Danny Lopez winning by a ten round decision. His next fight, a month later, in Mexicali, Mexico, was his first fight out of the country. He beat Memo Rodriguez by a knockout in nine rounds there.
People in Los Angeles were eager to see Danny Lopez and another up-and-coming Angelino, Bobby Chacon, square off inside a boxing ring. The fight took place on May 24, and Danny Lopez suffered his first professional loss, by a knockout in round nine. After one more win, he lost once again by a knockout in round nine, this time to Shig Furuyama.
After losing to Octavio Gómez to begin 1975, Lopez went into a roll: He began by beating Chucho Castillo by a knockout in two rounds. Two more wins, and he was faced with Rubén Olivares, whom he beat by a knockout in seven rounds, after getting better from a first round knockdown himself.
In 1976, he beat Sean O' Grady by knockout in four, Gómez by knockout in three and Art Hafey by knockout in seven. At last ranked number one by the WBC, he travelled to Ghana to face world Featherweight champion David Kotei in front of an estimated crowd of more than 100,000 Kotei partisans. Danny Lopez became world champion by outpointing Kotey over 15 rounds on November 6.
