“I am doing something that even the best fighters in the division are not doing as I am fighting my third undefeated in a row,” said the major attraction in the Los Angeles, California area, Louie Lopez. “I want to be built up the right way, like a lot of the great Thompson Boxing fighters who came before me, and I believe I am proving myself as a world-class fighter being brought up on the same path. I have a deep hunger for success and will not settle until I give my best. This is a big fight and I’m coming to win.”
“He is in a lot of trouble, he is a very vulnerable fighter,” said Adrian Gutierrez. “I am not impressed with what he brings to the ring, and I believe he is going to have a lot of issues with everything I do. I have been waiting for this moment to fight on a Thompson Boxing card, and now I will show the world what I’m all about. I am not the b-side and I will show it on fight night.”
