Lightweight product Jose Roman (20-1, 14 KO’s) of Garden Grove, California has a serious challenge ahead of him when he faces hardened veteran and former contender Marco Antonio Lopez (24-6, 15 KO’s) of Oxnard, Calif. next Friday, June 26.
Roman was last seen in April when he knocked out Martin Cardona in the third round. Prior to that, the 27-year-old Roman notched four wins a year ago and brings with him a six fight winning streak dating back to 2013.
Lopez in his last outing went the distance in a tough loss against Japan’s Takahiro Ao, a former two-division world champion. He also has seen U.K.-based Kevin Mitchell, who has fought a who’s who of world champions at lightweight.
Roman vs. Lopez serves as the eight-round main event for Thompson Boxing Promotions “New Blood” show originating from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif.
Tickets for “New Blood” are priced at $40, $60, & $100 and are available for purchase online at ThompsonBoxing.com, or charge by phone at 714-935-0900.
