The majority of boxing fans outside of Australia aren’t too familiar with George Kambosos. That being said, he does have an excellent body of work. In his last two fights, he’s beaten world champions and remains undefeated. He’s been at the wildcard gym training with Pacquiao and is used to operating at the highest level. He has the right amount of pressure that can be applied when needed with a smart in-ring IQ. He likes to land big hooks at middle to close distance.
Compared to his opponent, Kambosos isn’t the fastest – which could be his downfall against the speed and rhythm of Lopez. Another chink in Kambosos’s armor is that he leans forward too much, which is a sign his feet are not fast enough for his aggressive style.
Lopez is on top of his game right now. He proved all the doubters wrong with his win over former P4P king Lomachenko on October 17 of last year. Lopez fought a masterpiece in that fight and he’s got fast-twitch muscles and comes to flat-footed but can switch that up on the fly. His flat-footed style is a perfect recipe for landing some explosive power shots. He can catch and parry shots incredibly well and is incredibly versatile for a young boxer.
The key takeaway for betting on this fight is to know Kambosos leaves himself too open to shots. If “Ferocious” lets this fight slip from his grasp early in the fight, I expect Lopez to gain momentum each progressing round. Working the body and coming back to the head of Kambosos, eventually scoring a KO/TKO win for Lopez.

While I expect this fight to be competitive in the early rounds. I do think Lopez will takeover by the fifth round in a real way. Betting on the under here would net $100 with a $137 wager. When it comes to round betting options, I’m siding with rounds 5-8 and 9-12 have the exact same odds, giving odds of +333 (Bet $100, win $333). Finally, if you are looking for a more simple bet, you can’t go wrong with Lopez via KO (Bet $275, win $100).
