WBO featherweight champion Steven Luevano (37-1-1, 15 KOs) of La Puente, CA, trained by former junior lightweight champion Robert Garcia at the famed La Colonia Boxing Gym in Oxnard, CA, will be making his sixth title defense on January 23rd at Madison Square Garden in New York, NY against current WBO junior featherweight champion Juan Manuel “Juanma” Lopez (27-0, 24 KOs) of Puerto Rico, which will be shown live on HBO. Luevano’s last title defense was against Bernabe Concepcion back in August in a bout which Luevano was dominating when Concepcion hit Luevano after the bell to end round seven and resulted in a win by disqualification for Luevano.
