Adam Lopez will be fighting Luis Coria for the vacant NABF Featherweight title over 10 rounds. The fight will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas on the 11th of June. I’m happy that Top Rank have kept to their promise of backing him if he took the Oscar Valdez on short notice by putting him in a fight for a ranking belt immediately. Lopez is a real throwback fighter who is willing to take on the best competition available even if its at a days notice. In 15 fights hes fought 8 undefeated fighters including Oscar Valdez and Stephen Fulton. Those two names alone show a better level of competition than some world champions have faced so far.
I was very impressed with Lopez in the Valdez fight and him being willing to take the fight on a days notice made me a fan. I’m rooting for him to win this fight and hopefully go on a run for a world title at Featherweight.
