Teofimo Lopez vs. Edis Tatli

12 rounds, lightweights
Teofimo Lopez was awarded the ESPN prospect of the year 2018 after 4 impressive victories. He is only 21 years old and he seems headed for big things. He has stated several times that he would beat Lomachenko if they were to meet. We don’t think he would stand a chance as of today but give him 2-3 years to mature and let Loma age 2-3 years then it becomes very likely. His opponent this Saturday is Edis Tatli from Finland who is an experienced professional with a record of 31-2. Edis Tatli is a descent boxer and his best wins has mostly come by decisions. It seems here that he wont have the power to keep Lopez of him. It will take a boxer with extraordinary skills to stop the offense of Lopez so there for Tatli will struggle badly in this fight. It is very likely that Teofimo Lopez gets the stoppage inside the first 5 rounds. However it plays out, it will be a difficult night for Tatli from Finland. The Pick is Teofimo Lopez to win this bout.
The Pick: Teofimo Lopez to win fight
