This contest is for the WBO international super lightweight championship with Lopez and Martin affixed in the champion and challenger roles, respectively.

Teofimo Lopez’s Betting Outlook vs Martin

Lopez was the former unified world champion at lightweight and in his last fight, he captured more gold. His first fight in a new division saw Lopez mint himself as a titleholder at 140 pounds now.

‘The Takeover’ is aiming to live up to the nicknames he has aspirations to eventually collect world titles in yet another weight category.

The bout has a strap on the line but it also serves as a world title eliminator fight with the WBC. The fact a Regis Prograis (the sitting champion with that promotional body) fight hangs in the balance is an exciting proposition for the weight category as 2023 looms closely.

Jose Pedraza was initially supposed to be in this fight until a withdrawal due to illness saw Martin presented with an opportunity to step up. This is a matchup that Lopez seems to find even more exciting and that will likely translate to the action within the consequential clash.

Martin showed his confidence in his skills and his general temerity by accepting this fight on less than one month’s notice. He represents a test for Lopez to see if the former lightweight king is truly the real deal among the elite at super lightweight.

Sandor Martin’s Betting Outlook vs Lopez

Martin is an international super lightweight champion in his own right but his gold is under the WBA banner. He is on an eleven-fight winning streak, possesses a slick style that’s mindful of fight IQ,  and represents a stiffer opponent for Lopez than the oddsmakers are suggesting.

Martin has the professional experience edge and also has proven to be a difficult adversary to rock with strikes; as evidenced by the fact he has never been finished as a pro. Conversely, Lopez has a superior finishing rate overall and is also an intelligent fighter much like his upcoming opponent.

This looming showdown looks like an exciting yet technical fight on paper.

Lopez vs Martin Prediction

The key prizefight between the pair is scheduled for ten rounds and I do see this one going the distance (situated at -210).

I see value in seeking out another prop bet on Lopez winning via decision/ points (positioned presently at -125).

Pick: Teofimo Lopez (-700)
