While fans should love his attitude towards wanting to prove himself, he must realize that he currently sits in no position to make demands when it comes to facing Lomachenko; a three division champion.

Lopez will be action April 20 against Edis Tatli (31-2, 10KO) on the under-card of Terence Crawford vs Amir Khan. This will be his second of the proposed 4-5 fights for 2019.
