Adam Lopez aims to shine in ShoBox headliner tonight

In the main event two undefeated prospects with exceedingly high expectations face their most dangerous opponent to date when Adam “Mantequilla” Lopez (14-0, 7 KOs), of San Antonio, Texas, by way Phoenix, Ariz., meets Mario “Yayo” Muñoz (16-0-1, 10 KOs), of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico in a 10-round super bantamweight matchup.

In other televised bouts, all scheduled for eight rounds, Ronald “Flatline” Ellis (12-0, 10 KOs), of Dorchester, Mass., takes on Washington D.C.’s Jerry “The King’s Son” Odom (13-2, 12 KOs) in a clash of hard-hitting super middleweights, southpaw Lavisas “Red” Williams (8-0-1, 3 KOs), of Rochester, N.Y. risks his undefeated record against O’Shaquie “Ice Water” Foster (9-1, 6 KOs), of Orange, Texas, in a lightweight match and, opening the telecast, John “Madman” Magda (11-0, 7 KOs), of Rutherford, N.J., faces Philadelphia’s Christopher “Ice Cold” Brooker (7-1, 5 KOs) in a super middleweight matchup.

Lopez, who will be making his third ShoBox appearance feels that a win on Friday night should warrant his name mentioned with the elite of the suddenly hot 122-pound division.

“2016 is the breakout year. This is where I stamp my mark and become an actual contender,” said Lopez. “I feel with a win, I feel I should be mentioned as one of the top contenders in the division. I feel a I am a couple fights away from a fight with one of the big champions.

He knows that facing the undefeated Munoz, that it would be a real good fight for the fans to see.

“Munoz brings a good boxing style. He has been in there with world champions (Moises Flores).
