Vasiliy Lomachenko vs Teofimo Lopez: fight card, date, odds, start time,...

Boxing fans are spoiled for choice this weekend as they don’t have to reach into their wallets to watch one of the best fights of the year. A fight will finally take place on Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, long in coming, when Vasiliy Lomachenko meets Teofimo Lopez to unify the easy titles. Even better? It will be on free television, as opposed to a fight of this magnitude that is usually thrown behind a pay-per-view wall.

Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KO) switched from probably the greatest amateur boxer in history to professional and was already fighting for the world title in his second professional fight. He would suffer a loss in that fight, leaving Orlando Salido to a separate decision. He recovered in his next fight, making a decision over Gary Russell Jr. and winning the WBO featherweight title. He would eventually move up to Junior Lightweight and then Lightweight, gaining belts at every weight. He currently holds the WBA and WBO world titles.

Lopez (15-0, 12 KO’s) didn’t enter the professional ranks with the same hype as Lomachenko, but quickly emerged as an emerging star with an eye-catching style and serious skill. Aside from a flat performance in winning a decision against Masayoshi Nakatani, Lopez has impressed every time he stepped into a ring. Most recently Lopez won the IBF Championship with an impressive round of 16 against Richard Commey in December.

In the co-main event, Alex Saucedo competes against Arnold Barboza Jr. in a showdown at 140 pounds. Saucedo has recovered well from the lonely loss of his career – a TKO loss to Maurice Hooker in 2018 – and has two wins in his last two fights. He will compete as a sizeable player under Barboza, entering the fight between 24 and 10 with 10 KOs unbeaten in his career. The winner could potentially be approaching a title chance in 2021.

It’s going to be a busy week that leads to one of the most lucrative fights of the year. CBS Sports will keep you updated on the latest news, top features and best bets for this loaded battle card on Saturday night. This page is updated frequently. So bookmark the whole week.
