Teofimo vs Martin
The fight will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York. The stadium has a capacity for almost 21,000 spectators.
Sandor Martin is ready to make history on Saturday night by sending Teofimo Lopez down to his second career defeat to put himself in a position to challenge WBC light welterweight champion Regis ‘Rougarou’ Prograis.
Martin (40-2, 13 KOs) has already sized the former unified lightweight champion Teofimo (17-1, 13 KOs) and believes he’s got the beating of him tomorrow night when the two 140-pounders headline on ESPN.
Martin, 29, says he doesn’t rate Teofimo as being in the same league as former four-division world champion Mikey Garcia, a fighter he sent into retirement last year in October after outboxing the once-great champ in a one-sided manner.
Teofimo, 25, has come across as a confused person in the build-up to Saturday’s fight, rambling and sounding like he was repeating psycho-babble that he’d either read or been told to him. One gets the sense from listening to Teofimo speak, he’s a deeply troubled fighter, still trying to make sense of what happened to him in his loss to George Kambosos Jr.
