Local boxer prepares for first pro fight CORPUS CHRISTI -
A former Moody athlete is getting ready for his professional boxing debut. Two-time State Golden Gloves Champ Alfonso "El Tigre" Lopez will open up the undercard for Saturday's Evander Holyfield fight against San Antonio's Juan Garcia.
Turning pro is serious business for Lopez, and he said there's no better place to start than right here at home.
Lopez played football and baseball at Moody before playing football for Sam Houston State. He already has a degree and a silver medal from the USA Boxing National Championships.
