Prediction,

Lopez has been very impressive in his last 2 fights, especially his last fight, he is only 21, 11-0, Silva, Menard, they are not nearly world level, so let's not get carried away, but Lopez seems like a very talented fighter who is more than ready to step up from the opposition he has fought so far.

I think this is a slight step up for Lopez, because Magdaleno is experienced, 31-2, good record, he has been in world title fights.

Given how dominant Lopez has been in his last 2 fights, this is not too much, too soon for him, because Magdaleno is not young, doesn't have a good chin (been dropped in at least 4 fights, been down at least 6 times), and has never been a world champion. Magdaleno fought to a split decision against Roman Martinez, and probably a prime Martinez, which is good, and he is a very good North American level fighter, but he still lost to Martinez, and when he fought Terry Flanagan, who is not a great fighter, he was disappointing, got blasted out in 2. Since the Flanagan loss, in 2015, Magdaleno has fought 3 times, not ideal, but he has won 2 10 round UDs, fought 4 months ago, and twice in 2018, his inactivity was more in 2015-17, so his form isn't terrible, but with the Flanagan loss, and the level he has fought at since (which hasn't been terrible, hasn't been great), he might not be the fighter he was when he fought Martinez.

Lopez is very inexperienced, didn't have that long an amateur career, and lost in the 1st leg of the Olympics, so he should not be rushed, has a lot to learn. Lopez lost 0-3 in the Olympics, but to be fair to him, he lost to a fighter who went on to win a silver medal, so for all we know, Lopez might have potentially won a bronze medal had he been luckier, he also might still not have got that far, but still, competing in the Olympics, great experience, and as a professional, he seems to be progressing very fast.

I expect the early rounds to be one sided, Magdaleno is not a fast starter, he has been dropped in the first round in 2 different fights, fights he went on to win, Lopez is the young, confident fighter with the momentum, and if anyone is getting caught hurt early, based on the likely difference in power, it will probably be Magdaleno.

Magdaleno needs to make this about experience, he's had 3 times more fights than Lopez, done more like 5 times the rounds, and he has been 12 rounds once, 10 rounds many times, Lopez has never been past 6, so if Lopez fails to get him out of there inside 6, and it goes into the mid-late rounds, the fight will be interesting, and that's where it could work more in Magdaleno's favour.

I don't think Magdaleno is much better than Menard, slightly, but not much, and I think Lopez is more than ready for Magdaleno, it will be another mismatch, not as much of a mismatch as the Menard fight, but Lopez will stop him in 4.

Worst corner job and referee I’ve seen in awhile. They let Magdaleno get brutalized. Brilliant performance from Lopez.

Matchroom's picture

Agreed Salty.

Matchroom's picture

That didn't need to happen. Great performance by Teofimo, I really hope they make Loma vs Lopez happen. Although with Arum coming out recently saying he blocked Pacquiao vs Crawford I don't know. I can see Lopez giving Loma a hard night now, though I still think Loma wins, & I think Loma looks like the best in the world versus Commey.

Champion97's picture

I don't like Lopez, there is a lot of hype around Lopez, and he has impressed in his last couple of fights, seems like a very talented fighter, but he is inexperienced, arrogant fighters who think they don't need to learn, don't improve, Lopez hasn't beaten any good fighters, and his chin is questionable, he has been down, he is not invincible. It took him a lot longer to get rid of Magdelano than it took Flanagan. I think it is crazy to even talk about Lomachencko vs Lopez.

Joke that Lopez was the co-main event, doesn't have a world title, the two fights before his fight were world title fights.

Gold's picture

Magdaleno was taunting and talking to him during the fight, it is a two-way street. The transitive property doesn't work in boxing and you know that. Just because it took him longer than it took Flanagan it doesn't mean he is worse than Flanagan. He was the co-main because Top Rank understands how to promote their fighters, it increases his visibility to be in the co-main and have a good performance as he did.

Champion97's picture

Lopez has proven nothing at world level, he has a lot to prove, to put it lightly, hopefully he loses when he steps up, wouldn't mind seeing him get knocked out.

No it doesn't mean he's worse than Flanagan, just like him beating Menard earlier than Haney doesn't mean he's better than Haney.

Gold's picture

Not any debate here, Magdaleno was taunting and talking to him in the fight.

You liked it when Bellew taunted versus Usyk though?

He is a prospect, what do you expect man. He wants to fight the best but Top Rank won't let him because they don't want to rush him. You likely won't be seeing him get knocked out, he is the real deal.

No, he is better than Haney because he is a more developed and well-rounded fighter, which he showed last night.

Champion97's picture

You can't tell whether or not he is the real deal, you think he might be, but he is unproven, that I will say, calmly, being neutral, I will also say I expected him to get him out of there earlier. I don't think he is more developed, better than Haney, he hits harder, but I think Haney, overall, is the better boxer, who is better is up for debate.

Gold's picture

As I said to Salt, it was a similar fight to Davis vs. Fonseca, Lopez could have got Magdaleno out of there earlier if he stepped on the gas but he wanted to put on a show.

Come on, even if the celebration was over the line it was not that bad. He was just putting on a show, Magdaleno wanted to talk to him and taunt him so he gave it back to him.

Gold's picture

I assume you haven't seen Alvarez vs. Kovalev yet?

Champion97's picture

I haven't, I'm about to, I would appreciate no spoilers.

Gold's picture

Okay, no spoilers. It is worth watching though, not a boring fight.

Champion97's picture

It can't be more entertaining than Fury vs Seferi and Pulev vs Fury, haha

Gold's picture

Fury vs. Seferi was one for the ages

Matchroom's picture

Pride & heart is what kept Magdaleno in there so long against Lopez, not to mention the kid wasn't in a hurry only his 12th fight needed the rounds. Plus the Flanagan fight was in Flanagan's backyard where they are a meme with the term "British Stoppage" lol. Anyway The kid will give Loma a tough test, but I can't see him winning.

Champion97's picture

Dropped 3 times against Flanagan.
