Teofimo Lopez vs Masayoshi Nakatani: Live results and coverage
- Esquiva Falcao TKO-8 Jesus Antonio Gutierrez (1:35)
Tonight at 10 pm ET streaming live on ESPN+, lightweight super prospect Teofimo Lopez returns in an IBF eliminator against unbeaten Japanese fighter Masayoshi Nakatani in the main event from Oxon Hill, Maryland.
Wil Esco will be on the round by round call this evening.
Lopez, 21, is the big favorite here, as the 30-year-old Nakatani is a solid regional fighter on paper, while Lopez projects as a true potential star. The winner will be in line for a shot at Richard Commey, who holds the IBF 135-pound title.
The co-feature is a 140-pound title eliminator between top prospect Maxim Dadashev and Subriel Matias, who is far less known but has the numbers to be dangerous, winning all 13 of his pro fights inside the distance.
Prelim action kicks off at 6:30 pm ET, also on ESPN+, with some good prospects and also Esquiva Falcao in action.
