Jose Pedraza Vs. Mikkel LesPierre Results
Once again, Top Rank will look to rely on two fighters for some competitive junior-welterweight action. Inside the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas, Top Rank has fireworks ready to go before Fourth of July weekend takes over.
The main event will be Jose Pedraza v. Mikkel LesPierre in a junior welterweight fight. The two were supposed to fight on June 18 but the bout was called off the night of the fight card after LesPierre’s manager Jose Taveras tested positive for COVID-19.
Following a draw in his second fight, LesPierre (22-1-1) won 20 fights in a row before the start of 2019. LesPierre lost to Maurice Hooker for the WBO Super-Lightweight Title and rebounded against Roody Pierre Paul in December.
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.
