Steve Claggett is looking to bounce back after he was upset by Mathieu Germain a few months ago. Claggett is a solid Super lightweight, who has been a staple of the Canadian domestic scene for years. Emanuel Lopez was once a fairly good fighter but is currently on a bad streak. He’s lost his last three fights in a row, being stopped all three times, against steadily worse competition.
I think Steve Claggett should be able to out box Lopez early on before stopping him in the sixth or seventh round. With Lopez moving up a weight class I also think he’ll struggle to deal with Claggett’s size advantages.
