People should tune in because it will be a great fight.
The fans will get the best Adam Lopez on Saturday and that is what I am promising.”
“Fans should expect a fire fight. I bring excitement and that is what the fans are expecting. The fans want Isaac Dogboe to come and fight and that is what I will come and do.
That is why we are here. I want the fight to be the talk of the night.
The best Adam Lopez can also be an undisciplined boxer. I have seen him fight and I know that he can get cute and on Saturday, we will look to exploit that.”
