    Surprised this match up hasn't been discussed before. Between these 2 technically sound and skillful boxer-punchers who do you favor in this match up. It'll definitely be a beautiful and exciting fight to watch.

    Yoko's an explosive fighter. Lopez has the necessary tools to tame him and possibly KO him.

    I’ve always liked Gushiken in this matchup, but I will say if I was the trainer of Lopez, I would be reviewing films with Ricardo on the two Pedro Flores fights. Those two fights really displayed Yoko’s Achilles Heel to the lead right. But great matchup.

    Yoko by decision, but a late stoppage wouldn’t surprise me either. Either way Gushiken is winning this

    Lopez by points or late stoppage. Yoko was never that great.
