Teofimo Lopez and Vasiliy Lomachenko are ready for Saturday night.
The two champions faced off on Friday, as each weighed in at the lightweight limit of 135 pounds. Lopez (15-0, 12 KO’s) is the IBF champion of the world, while Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KO’s) holds the WBA and WBO titles. The fight will be taking place in Las Vegas, without a paying crowd.
The face off post weigh-in was a great sight to see, as you can tell how focused each man is, as they intently stared one another down.
This fight could be a classic. Stay tuned. The action starts on ESPN at 10 PM ET.
