Lopez (16-0 12 KOs) heads to the Big Apple for his first defense of the titles he won after his victory over Ukrainian superstar Vasiliy Lomachenko in October 2020. The 24-year-old will fight at the storied New York home of boxing for the seventh time in his career as he looks to solidify his place in the pound-for-pound list.
Meanwhile, Kambosos Jr (19-0 10 KOs) earned his title shot by beating Lee Selby in a final eliminator in London, England, in October 2020 – a sixth straight fight on the road for the 28-year-old.
Chairman of Matchroom Sport and the fight promoter, Eddie Hearn, stated: “The anticipation is going to reach fever point as we hit Thanksgiving and they meet in New York in fight week, and Bookies.com will be there to give fight fans the inside track on what promises to be an all-out war at the Manhattan mecca of boxing.”
