There is a high profile boxing match this weekend.  First one in a long time. One of the highest profile boxing matches of the COVID-19 era will take place on Saturday night at the MGM Grand, as Vasyl "Loma" Lomachenko will square off against Teofimo Lopez.

There will be many belts on the line, including the WBA, WBO, The Ring and IBF titles.

The winner of this fight will square off against Devin Haney for the WBC belt later in the year, which would finally end up crowning an undisputed Lightweight champion.

Lomachenko is one of the most popular and exciting fighters in the world. He enters this bout with a career record of 14-1-0, with 10 of his wins coming via knockout.

Lomachenko is in the midst of a long winning streak, with wins over Luke Campbell, Anthony Crolla and Jorge Linares, just to name a few.

Lopez will certainly provide some tough competition for Lomachenko, as he will enter this fight with a perfect record of 15-0-0.

While Lomachenko is certainly the favourite to win, there is no doubt that the oddsmakers are pricing in a decent shot that Lopez pulls off the upset.
