“One round, I know I should make him suffer and like hold the pain but I just….. It’s gonna be a one-hitter quitter. I’ll probably pick him up like I’m crazy like that. I’ll probably pick the man up, and have the ref count him again and then do it again and then pick him up and just keep doing it till the round ends, but they’ll finish the fight by then.” said Lopez when an interviewer asked him how many rounds the fight would last for.
