In conjunction with Matchroom, Bookies.com has announced their partnership of the New York clash as World Champion Teofimo Lopez defends his Lightweight title.
Bookies.com has joined Matchroom as an official partner for the Lightweight thriller between unified World Champion Teofimo Lopez and IBF mandatory challenger George Kambosos Jr. at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday November 27, live worldwide on DAZN.
Lopez (16-0 12 KOs) heads to the Big Apple to make his first defense of the titles he won in stunning fashion with victory over Ukrainian superstar Vasiliy Lomachenko in October 2020, and the 24 year old Brooklyn star will fight at the storied New York home of boxing for the seventh time in his career as he looks to solidify his place in the pound-for-pound list.
Kambosos Jr. (19-0 10 KOs) looks to stun the world and will hold no fear as a feisty Australian challenger, who landed the title shot by beating former World ruler Lee Selby in a final eliminator in London, England, in October 2020 – a sixth straight fight on the road for the 28-year-old.
