Inspirational war veteran Sammy Vasquez (19-0, 13 KOs) puts his perfect record on the line against Jose Lopez (25-3-1, 15 KOs) in the 147-pound headliner September 15 as Toe-to-Toe Tuesdays returns to FOX Sports 1.
A crowd-pleasing 29-year-old boxer-puncher from Monessen, Pennsylvania, Vasquez survived a brawl in his most recent fight in June in Las Vegas, winning a unanimous decision over previously once-beaten Wale Omotoso.
With this bout taking place at the California University of Pennsylvania Convocation Center in California, Pennsylvania, Vasquez definitely will have the crowd on his side. But that doesn’t mean the southpaw will have an easy time of it against Lopez, who has notched eight straight victories since falling by unanimous decision to former champion Humberto Soto in November 2012.
The 24-year-old Lopez , of Torreon, Coalhuila de Zaragoz, Mexico, has racked up five knockouts during his winning streak, momentum that the “Piston” will attempt to build on during this clash, which is scheduled for 10 rounds.
