Amir Khan-Josesito Lopez Could Be Next For April

By Ernest Gabion

Sources close to the situation have advised BoxingScene.com that Josesito Lopez (30-5, 18KOs) has emerged as the early frontrunner to face former champion Amir Khan in April.

He then moved up again, to junior middleweight, but bit off more than he could chew when WBC champion Saul Alvarez dropped him three times for a fifth round TKO.

Poor Lopez being used as a confidence builder to beat up on. Another tune-up for Khan here. He's not ready for the top fighters yet.

After Garcia beats Judah they are most likely going to rematch Khan. None of this fools want anything to do with Matthyse. They are gonna hype Khan as being this new and improved boxer and this would be another big…
