Can Lopez Shock the World?

I cannot be more excited for this weekend's matchup between Teofimo Lopez and Lomachenko. A classic tale of the young lion coming up to challenge the seasoned vet. The casual fan may not understand this as they have a similar number of pro fights, however their careers could not be more different....

Lomachenko has an amateur record of 396-1 with two Olympic Gold absurd amateur career led to a pro career where his second fight was for a world title. His only fight that wasn't for a world title was his first pro fight! Which was still for the WBO international title by the way....Now sitting on the throne of the 135lbs division, holding multiple titles...he has very few doubters....most opponents he has outclassed and in the fight versus Linares where he was dropped he got up and finished Linares with a vicious body shot. Some say he looked sluggish in his last outing and maybe the tread on the tires is starting to show but "LOMA" remains regarded if not the best..the most technical fighter in boxing.

Teofimo Lopez a 23 year old kid from Brooklyn had a solid amateur record of 150-20...many people must not have expected his pro career to catch fire the way it has...he now is a world champ sitting at 15-0 with 12KO's....he's an explosive puncher with size and speed for the division that demolished Richard Comey in his last outing to capture the IBF title....the kid is electric in the ring and has captured the fans he the one to KO Lomachenko? Can he pressure LOMA and show the world that there is a new king of the jungle?? We will find out if he can back up the trash talk this Saturday on ESPN...make sure to tune in for one of the biggest fights in boxing....
