eofimo Lopez will defend his title against Canadian veteran Steve Claggett on June 29 at Miami’s James L. Knight Center, Top Rank announced today. The bout will be part of an ESPN show, potentially competing with the Juan Francisco Estrada vs. “Bam” Rodriguez fight on DAZN.

Claggett (38-7-2, 26 KO), 34, is getting his first world title shot nearly 16 years after his professional debut. Despite a mixed record, Claggett has solid wins over Yves Ulysse Jr. and Petros Ananyan, and he hasn’t been stopped in over a decade. While he presents a different challenge, he seems more manageable for Lopez (20-1, 13 KO) than previous opponents Sandor Martin and Jamaine Ortiz.

Lopez, known as “The Takeover,” aims to showcase his dominance once more. Fans can expect an exciting clash as Claggett gets his long-awaited chance at a world title.
