JOSESITO LOPEZ ONE MONTH AWAY FROM RING RETURN
Press Release: On June 8th in Carson, California's Home Depot Center, Marcos Maidana faces Josesito Lopez in a twelve-round welterweight fight to be televised live on Showtime Championship Boxing. In 2012, Lopez came into a fight with Victor Ortiz as an underdog but stopped Ortiz in nine. That earned him an ambitious crack at Saul Alvarez's WBC 154-pound title last September, which Lopez lost in five rounds. He has not fought since then. Also featured on the broadcast will be a twelve-round junior middleweight showdown between Alfredo "El Perro" Angulo and Erislandy Lara. Preliminary fights will air on Showtime Extreme at 8 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast).
