Closing out the wildly popular LA Fight Club Series for 2016, undefeated NABA Featherweight champion Abraham “El Chamaco” Lopez (21-0-1, 15 KOs) will defend his title against Sergio “Cuatito” Lopez (20-12-1, 13 KOs)in the 10-round main event, presented live by Estrella TV’s Boxeo Estelar.
This is Abraham Lopez’ first fight since the biggest victory of his career, when he outpointed the then-undefeated Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez in the co-main event on HBO from the StubHub Center in June.
“The victory over Julian was an enormous step forward in my career, but I have many more goals to accomplish,” Abraham Lopez said. “I am hopeful and confident that I will take care of business on December 2nd and then set myself up for even bigger fights in the loaded featherweight division in 2017.”
