Alfonso Lopez targets Kovalev-Yarde winner ahead of Alex Theran showdown

Boxing TV's Dan Hewitt is stateside this evening to cover El Tigre Promotions' card at Lone Star Convention Center in Houston.1 min


Alphonso Lopez (30-3 24KOs) fights Alex Theran (21-3 14 KOs) this evening in the main event in Houston, Texas. With the vacant WBO NABA Heavyweight title up for grabs, Lopez plans to challenge for the WBO light heavyweight title as soon as possible.
Speaking with Boxing TV’s Dan Hewitt recently, the 37 year old Huntsvile boxer said:
“Yarde and Kovalev are both dangerous guys. But I’m driven by elite competition. It’s what boils my blood. I’m ready!”
Aiming for the best the WBO has to offer, Lopez must come through tonight’s challenge and has no plans to look past tough competitor Theret – but with eight straight victories coming in to tonight’s WBO sanctioned bout, the confidence to compete at the highest level is clearly evident.

Alfonso Lopez currently holds the NBA world title and ABO Intercontinental title at Light Heavyweight and is coming off a 5th round TKO victory over Melvin Russell. Tonight’s event serves Lopez the opportunity to move back towards the highest level and a victory would make him hard to ignore in the light heavyweight division.
The card features a wide range of the finest boxing talents that Texas have to offer with Juan Velezquez, Nick Barnhill, Eros Gallegos and Roger Ibbara, also fighting.
El Tigre Promotions have also given Texas fighters Raynard Talib, Ivan Vasquez, Israel Ibbara, Alicia Casteneda, Adrian Pequeno and Robbie McCilmans the platform to shine in front of a live crowd in Houston. The stacked card will be streamed live on El Tigre Promotions Facebook page.
