Teofimo Lopez returns for his second bout at junior welterweight and to get a step closer to a title shot.
But first, he must get past Sandor Martin in their main event at Madison Square Garden.
Lopez was originally scheduled to face Jose Pedraza, but was forced to change opponents with a three week’s notice after Pedraza was forced to withdraw due to an illness.
Lopez told media on Thursday that he didn’t want to face Pedraza — he always wanted Martin. Lopez returned to the winning column with a TKO win against Pedro Campa.
Martin was last in action in April where he defeated Jose Felix in Spain. His most impressive win came a fight before that where he upset Mikey Garcia.

- Teofimo Lopez vs. Sandor Martin; For the vacant WBO International title
