Who will win López vs Kambosos Jr?
The bout has had a series of hurdles and complications which included López testing positive for COVID-19 just days before their originally planned bout in Miami. It also came to pass that the International Boxing Federation ruled that Triller was in default of its contractual obligations to stage the bout and awarded the fight to Matchroom Boxing instead.
Kambosos has really fast hands and a good active jab, but the Australian can sit back too much in key moments. Both of these men are undefeated through 35 combined fights (Kambosos 19 and López 16), but López has 12 knockouts compared to 10 for the Australian.
If Kambosos can keep the attack up with his rapid punches he has a big chance to defeat a man who hasn't fought in 13 months.
