Bookies.com back Lopez vs Kambosos Jr
November 8 2021
Eddie Hearn and Matchroom are delighted to welcome gaming giant Bookies.com onboard as an official partner for the Lightweight thriller between unified World champion Teofimo Lopez and IBF mandatory challenger George Kambosos Jr. at Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York on Saturday November 27, live worldwide on DAZN.
Lopez (16-0 12 KOs) makes the first defense of the titles he won in stunning fashion with victory over Ukrainian superstar Vasiliy Lomachenko in Las Vegas in October 2020, and the 24 year old Brooklyn star will fight at the storied New York home of boxing for the seventh time in his career as he looks to solidify his place in the pound-for-pound list.
Kambosos Jr. (19-0 10 KOs) has other ideas though and travelling to the Big Apple will hold no fear for the feisty Australian challenger, who landed the title shot by beating former World ruler Lee Selby in a final eliminator in London, England, in October 2020 – a sixth straight fight on the road for the 28-year-old.
There’s plenty of bad blood between the unbeaten pair as the fractured build-up to the long-awaited clash is set to come to the boil in New York, and Bookies.com will be in the thick of the action in New York to bring fight fans exclusive content with fighters and pundits as the showdown draws closer. Fans need to keep their eyes peeled to Bookies.com’s social media channels @bookiesusa on Instagram and @bookies on Twitter for exciting contests that will begin this week.
We expect the November 27 Lopez vs. Kambosos Jr. fight to continue boxing’s return to the mainstream spotlight. Bookies.com is excited to partner with Matchroom to help make this fight something to remember.
