Marcos Maidana faces Josesito Lopez tonight in the Showtime main event from the Home Depot Center in Carson, California.

Maidana (33-3, 30 KO) and Lopez (30-5, 18 KO) are both contenders at 147 right now, but this fight will possibly net the winner a title shot in the near future. The WBA Inter-continental title (held by Maidana) is on the line tonight, so the winner would be in a good position to possibly fight for the WBA belt by the end of the year.

Opening the SHO broadcast will be junior middleweight prospect Jermell Charlo (20-0, 10 KO) taking on veteran Demetrius Hopkins (33-2-1, 13 KO), the unheralded nephew of Bernard. Demetrius is a decent operator on his better nights, so he’s a decent test for Charlo, but nothing special.
