WBO featherweight titleholder Lopez (29-0, 26 KOs), of Puerto Rico, will defend against two-division world champion Marquez (39-5, 35 KOs), of México City, in what has been called a rebirth of the spirited Puerto Rico vs. Mexico rivalry that spans generations.
Tarver, a former undisputed light heavyweight champion and the first man to knock out future Hall of Famer Roy Jones, Jr., will serve as expert commentator for Saturday’s SHOWTIME fights. Tarver returned to the ring last month, winning his heavyweight debut with a unanimous decision victory over Nagy Aguilera.
In the co-feature, world-ranked contender Allan Green will face veteran contender and former world champ Glen Johnson in a must-win Super Six World Boxing Classic bout. The winner of the 12-rounder will earn a spot in the tournament Semi-Finals.
