Anyone know anything on Lopez who's fighting Cano. I remember Cano had a decent fight with Mosley a while back.

[QUOTE=bigko;18131462]Who is favored? Seems like a close fight. :boxing:[/QUOTE] Barroso hasn't fought since he got KOd by Crolla. Long lay off and long in the tooth too? Bad management, he really needs a tune up.
