How Teofimo Lopez Jr. can get back on track against Pedro Campa

Teofimo Lopez Jr. returns to the ring on Saturday to take on Pedro Campa in his first bout since losing his lightweight titles to Geroge Kambosos last November. The fight headlines a Top Rank on ESPN card at the Resorts World Las Vegas on Saturday (ESPN, ESPN+, 10 p.m. ET with prelims at 6:35 p.m. ET on ESPN+).

Lopez (16-1, 12 KOs), who suffered the first defeat of his career by split decision to Kambosos, is moving up in weight and will make his debut at 140 pounds. With two of the junior welterweight world titles vacant (Josh Taylor currently holds the other two), there’s plenty on the line for the winner.

Campa (34-1-1, 23 KOs), hasn’t lost in almost five years and is riding an eight-fight unbeaten streak. In his most recent performance in March, Campa defeated Carlos Sanchez Valadez by third-round TKO. This will be Campa’s first fight outside of his home country of Mexico.

Can Lopez get back to the dominance he displayed before losing to Kambosos? Can he score an impressive victory to help him move to the top of his new division? Or will Campa take down Lopez and score an upset victory?

Two-division champion and current ESPN boxing analyst Timothy Bradley Jr. breaks down the lightweight matchup and picks the winner.
