Full Version: Maidana vs Lopez set for June 8th
FightHype Community > BOXING HYPE > Boxing

I'm a bit out of it right now, but hell, a Marcos Maidana vs Josesito Lopez would be CRAZY! Lopez has made a name for himself at WW against a guy that Maidana beat at 140 to make himself known...what better for GBP to make it up to us boxing fans, than to make this fight?

Of course this would take place at 147...what do you guys have for this one? I'll share my thoughts later...just wanna know what you all think.

Update: The bout has been set June 8th at the Home Depot Center in LA. [size="2"][/size]

This is one I'd love to see. I think that Lopez is a solid 147 guy. I dont think Maidana has really grown into the weight yet. Lopez D12. Lopez and Khan would also be a great one. Just hope Lopez has something left after the thrashing that Mexico Red gave him.

Too bad Khan and Lopez fell apart because of the weight, I would've liked to have seen that fight. But apparently Lopez-Maidana is being discussed now and I think this is an even better fight. It will be an all out, balls to the wall kind of fight and it probably won't go to the scorecards

I like this fight, fan friendly and competitive. I like maidana in this one but with a match up like this no one loses.

The winner should face ortiz

Good points guys!

I gave this one to Maidana by way of a close and controversial decision. Maidana can take a punch, and he's hella active nowadays during fights. Not only is he active, but he shows decent boxing skills, and not just walking into punches to wear the other guy down.

Lopez has just as much grit, but he doesn't take punches as well as Maidana. I like Lopez, but his pride gets the best of him, and he ends up exchanging with guys who have more power than him (Ortiz and Canelo). Sometimes he lands, and pretty much waits for the other guy to throw back...not good against the Maidanas of the world.

I just see Lopez landing a lot of body shots (which drift low from time to time), and getting a point deduction, which throws off the cards. He'll only get this point deduction because the ref will already be frustrated with Maidana for punching late, and a point will already be taken from him. Lol. I'm laughing, but I'm serious.

If Kenny Bayless caught that much hell trying to ref Maidana's last bout, then a piece of shit ref will be for a loooong night. laugh.gif Again, I see the tide of this fight changing, along with point deductions, and sadly, I believe it goes the distance.

This is an awesome fight, all of the sudden big things are happening this year.

This could set up a potential rematch for the winner against victor ortiz.

Thoughts, predictions, hate..?

According to a report from Boxing Scene, this scrap is close to being set for April 20th! I guess March and April will be the month that boxing gets back on track!

We literally were reading Bscene around the same time. That goes to show you how much work I'm actually getting done around here...none at all. Lol

wait, why would these guys who both beat ortiz be looking for a rematch? Ortiz should be trying to rematch them but he isn't interested, they can move on to bigger and better things.

Because they were both bad ass fights... ? There were like 6 kds in the maidana fight and ortiz is probably still a bigger draw then both

This will be a fun, fan friendly fight. I cant wait for this one. I'll have my popcorn and beer ready.

ya think so? i hope his fanbase stuck with him cause hes had a rough streak lol he has a revenge grocery list now
Cshel86
Whose inside game will be better in this one???
BrutUalBK
It would be a great fight because both guys are tough and come to fight, I think Maidana is becoming a better technician (still has many holes) but he'd be ahead in this bout and I think he'd win in a close decision.

I've followed ortiz since he first turned pro, I'm looking forward to his return. The guy is a very entertaining fighter

My mind tells me maidana will stop him because josesito is too tough for his own good but my gut tells me that the Riverside Rocky has another upset in his future or at the very least he will give Marcos a very entertaining run for his money.

I'm going Maidana. While I like Lopez (he's fan friendly...dude comes to fight), but had Victor not elected to fight w/ that mouth open, he would've continued to get the business end of Ortiz's punches. I like him, but I don't think he's anything special. That being said, if Maidana doesn't look better this time, than he did against Devon, I may be revisiting this post and my pick.

Maidana by close decision in a war! Expect both to go down in this one, with lots of ebb and flow in a thrilling very good to great fight!

Do you remember the Soto-Karass fight back in September?
