A Featherweight ten rounder sees Adam Lopez (14-2, KO6) meet Jason Sanchez (15-2, KO8) in a crossroads clash.
Both men have lost to Oscar Valdez, Lopez was stopped in seven after dropping Valdez in the second of their November 2019 meeting, while Sanchez was dropped and widely outscored in June of the same year.
Lopez has slightly the better seasoning, and I favour him to take a close points verdict.

There are debuts for Las Vegas Bantamweight, Floyd Diaz who takes on Fernando Macias (1-1, KO0), and for Troy Isley, who meets Bryant Costello (1-1, KO1) at Middleweight.
