Once again, Jose Pedraza and Mikkel LesPierre took to the scale for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup. Inside the MGM Grand Conference Center under the “Bubble”, Top Rank will present another night of action on July 1.
Pedraza (26-3) beat Raymundo Beltran in August 2018 for the WBO Lightweight Title before losing it to Vasiliy Lomachenko in December of that year. “Sniper” rebounded with a TKO win over Antonio Lozada Jr. before losing to Jose Zepeda in September. He was supposed to face Javier Molina in May.
After losing to Maurice Hooker in March 2019, resulting in his first loss since he started boxing in 2012, LesPierre (22-1-1) rebounded with a win over Roddy Pierre Paul in December.
The two were supposed to fight on June 18. The bout was called off the night of the fight card after LesPierre’s manager Jose Taveras tested positive for COVID-19. It was then rebooked for this week’s Thursday night card. For the results from their last weigh-in, check out the following link.
