Luis Alberto Lopez’s Betting Outlook vs Conlan

Lopez captured the gold in December and bested Warrington in his native Leeds.

He looks to duplicate this act of beating the hometown warrior when he defends the title against Conlan here.

Lopez is riding a ten-fight winning streak after a points loss in 2019.

He feels that being the away player here will galvanize him as Lopez says he’ll fight harder the more Conlan gets cheered.

Some live by the adage that you’re not a champion until you defend your title and Lopez looks to log that vaunted inaugural title defense this weekend.

‘El Venado’ aims to do so and to keep the belt in Mexico during this collision between a pair of top ten-ranked featherweights in the world.

Michael Conlan’s Betting Outlook vs Lopez

Conlan embarks on his sophomore crack at a world title. His clash with Leigh Wood saw him largely leading the dance until a stoppage loss in the final round of the fight briefly dashed those championship dreams for Conlan.

He gets a redemptive title opportunity here and will do so with the partisan support of the Belfast, Ireland faithful. That being said Conlan said he is calm, cool, and collected this time out as compared to the high magnitude of pressure he put on himself in the initial title bid.

Each pugilist has their own defined attributes with Lopez having the edge in overall pro experience as well as finishing ability.

Conversely, Conlan has a high fight IQ informed by his Olympic medalist caliber amateur pedigree and also has advantages in height as well as reach.

This contest is scheduled for twelve rounds and I ultimately see this one encroaching to that final bell.

In this 126-pound title clash, I see there being good value in seeking out prop bets on this fight going the distance (-230) and Conlan via decision (+140).
