Showtime’s series “ShoBox: The New Generation” will celebrate its 15th year with a four-fight telecast July 22 from Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Mashantucket, Conn. And the headliner could be a good one.
In it, Adam Lopez (15-0, 7 KOs) of San Antonio puts his undefeated record on the line when he tangles with once-beaten Roman Ruben Reynoso (18-1-1, 7 KOs) in the 10-round super bantamweight main event.
Lopez, 25, sets up the bout by suggesting he may have to avoid some haymakers from Reynoso.
“… He is kind of wild, but guys like that are hard to fight because you don’t know where the punches are coming from,” Lopez said. “But we will be prepared for anything.”
Reynoso, of Argentina, has never fought in the U.S. He’s hopeful a victory will earn him some big rewards.
“This is a big opportunity for us and we will do our best,” said Reynoso, 25. “This is a big fight and we know we have to win. With a win, we would hope to get a world title opportunity.”
