After last week's thrilling fight between Shawn Porter and Terence Crawford, there is more world-class boxing to look forward to this weekend.

Teofimo Lopez vs George Kambosos Jr Betting Odds

After several delays, WBA, IBF, WBO and The Ring lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez's fight with George Kambosos Jr is set to go ahead in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The build-up to the fight has had COVID setbacks, disputes over the venue and difficulties with promoters, but the stage is now set for an explosive night of boxing.

Lopez is 1/10 to get the victory, with Kambosos Jr a 13/2 shot and the draw priced up at 25/1.

Teofimo Lopez Record

Teofimo Lopez to win by KO/TKO/Disqualification - BET NOW

 

Teofimo Lopez has a perfect record of 16 wins from 16 professional fights and has four of the five lightweight belts in his possession.

Lopez achieved this by picking up the IBF title two fights ago with a second-round knockout of Richard Commey before he registered a unanimous decision victory against Vasiliy Lomachenko last time out.

The win over Lomachenko meant Lopez took the WBA, WBO and The Ring titles. Lopez claims to be the unified champion as he took the 'Franchise' WBC belt, though many do not recognise him as such with Devin Haney, the WBC Champion.

Twelve of Lopez's 16 victories have come by way of knockout. The American is ranked as the fifth-best active boxer by ESPN and the Boxing Writers Association of America.

George Kambosos Jr Record

George Kambosos Jr has a professional record of 19 wins and no losses, with 10 of those wins coming by way of knockout.

Kambosos Jr is the IBF lightweight mandatory challenger after defeating British fighter Lee Selby in October 2020 by split decision in London.

Before that, the Australian beat Mickey Bey, again by split decision, at Madison Square Garden in December 2019.

Kambosos Jr's first 13 fights were in Australia, and he is the current IBF Pan Pacific lightweight titleholder, holding that belt since 2017.

Teofimo Lopez to win in Rounds 7-9 - BET NOW

 

George Kambosos Jr was a deserving victor over Lee Selby back in 2020, but this is a significant jump in class to the elite level. 

Teofimo Lopez has had a rapid rise through the ranks, and it is easy to forget that he is still just 24 years old. El Brooklyn was impressive in his shock victory over Visailiy Lomachenko, and there could be more progress possible with youth on his side.

Kambosos Jr, as a result, has a major task on his hands to try and produce the upset and get a shock victory.

The Australian fighter may just be outclassed by Lopez, whose explosive power has also seen him knockout three-quarters of his opponents.

Lopez can confirm the ability he demonstrated against Lomachenko and get another knockout victory here, although Kambosos Jr may be able to hang around until the latter stages of this bout.

Lopez to win by knockout is 4/9, with victory in rounds 7-9 a 7/2 chance.
