Garcia (31-0, 26 KO) has thus far been terrific as a pro, and his win over Salido — though cut short due to injury — was a pretty thorough clinic for the majority of the eight rounds it lasted, with Salido down four times and just totally outboxed by the younger man.

Lopez (33-2, 30 KO) is an extremely entertaining fighter, though not the elite talent he was hyped as being during his younger days. Now 29 (and turning 30 on June 30th), Lopez is a known quantity. He’s strong, he’s all-action, and he’s got enormous defensive flaws. Both of his losses came in brutal slugfests against Salido, who stopped him in both 2011 and 2012.

Lopez rebounded with a win in a tuneup fight but then was stopped in the 10th round of a March 2012 rematch with Salido, also in Puerto Rico, in another barn burner. Immediately after the second fight, when Lopez was still concussed, he accused referee Roberto Ramirez Jr. of stopping the fight because he had wagered on the outcome, which drew a $10,000 fine and a year suspension from the Puerto Rico boxing commission.

The commission lifted the suspension a little early, and Lopez returned in February and has won two fights in a row at 128 pounds against low-level opponents. He knocked out Aldimar Silva Santos in the ninth round in Puerto Rico on Feb. 23 and knocked out Eugenio Lopez in Mexico City on April 20.
