“'The Takeover' will entertain inside that squared circle as only I can! To the boxing fans around the world, I look to not only dominate and break down Jamaine Ortiz, but to do it in such a fashion that my division will be put on alert,” said Lopez in media reports.
"Jamaine is tough. I would know, because I faced him back in the amateur days in 2015 for the National Golden Gloves Championship. I'll show the world that champions don't flinch when faced with challenges," he added.
"This is the most important fight of my career," Ortiz said. "It’s my first world title bout. I believe this fight will bring out the very best in me, and I’m looking forward to coming home as the new champion!"
