WBC Lightweight franchise champion Vasiliy Lomachenko, seeks to chastise Teofimo López, this Saturday at the “Bubble” of the MGM Grand, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Vasyl Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KOs) comes into the fight after a brilliant decision victory over British star Luke Campbell last year in London, England.
The 32-year-old Ukrainian, who has reigned in three divisions, is a refined defensive and offensive fighter, with respectable punch and great speed, who is listed as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters of the moment.
Teofimo López (15-0, 12 KOs), is a fighter with excellent versatility, who knows how to adapt to each of the fighters he has faced so far, in addition to having a very solid punch.
This fight, which is promoted by Top Rank and which will be broadcasted by ESPN in the United States and by Space in Latin America, is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated matches of flair/flare, this year.
In the co-main event, the former world challenger, Alex “El Cholo” Saucedo (30-1, 19 KOs), will face the undefeated Arnold Barboza Jr. (24-0, 10 KOs), in a super lightweight fight.
In another bout, Puerto Rican super middleweight Edgar Berlanga (14-0, 14 KOs), will face veteran, Lanell Bellows, in an 8-round bout.
