We are just two days away from an exciting boxing showdown. This Saturday Marcos Maidana and Josesito Lopez square off live on Showtime. Showtime Boxing Maidana vs. Lopez airs Saturday June 8 live on Showtime with a fight time of 10:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. PT.
There are a lot of reasons to love this fight. You have two hard hitting punchers doing battle. You also have two evenly matched fighters, making this a tough fight to call. But the real reason to love it? Because these are just two exciting fighters, plain and simple. There's plenty I could say about why I'm looking forward to this fight, but perhaps the best way to explain it is to show the fighters in action.
To get ready for Saturday night, here then is a full fight video of Josesito Lopez vs. Victor Ortiz for your enjoyment.
Lopez vs. Ortiz took place almost exactly one year ago. Ortiz was coming off the high-profile fight with Floyd Mayweather. He was originally set to face Andre Berto here, but when Berto dropped out, Lopez stepped in on late notice. Ortiz vs. Lopez was seen in some ways as a mere formality - a fight to give Ortiz a win before he moved on to face Canelo Alvarez. Josesito Lopez didn't see it that way. The result was the signature win of Lopez's career to date, and a reminder that he is indeed a dangerous fighter.
