The WBO junior welterweight title is on the line as two-weight world champion Teofimo Lopez (19-1, 13 KOs) is set to defend his belt against Jamaine Ortiz (17-1-1, 8 KOs). The bout is scheduled for 12 rounds and will take place at the Michelob Ultra Arena at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
Lopez comes into this bout after an upset win over Josh Taylor last June, dispatching the former undisputed super lightweight champion by unanimous decision. Lopez has a knack to deliver on the big stage. In October 2020 he outclassed then unified lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko to capture both the WBA and WBO lightweight titles. With just one blemish on his record, the 26-year-old has won his last three bouts at 140 lbs.
Ortiz enters with over 7 years of professional experience, with his most notable win being an unanimous decision victory over Jamal Herring in May 2022. In his last bout he walked away with a win by decision as well, out punching Antonio Moran. This is undoubtedly his biggest fight since he took on Lomachenko and lost back in October 2022.
