For Lopez, this is the fourth time he is going to fight in Las Vegas. His last bout there was in 2010 when he beat Rafael Marquez by TKO.

Meanwhile Oquendo (24-3, 16 KOs), who is going to fight for the fifth time at the MGM Grand, will face former three time world champion Abner Mares (26-1-1, 14 KOs) in a featherweight 10 rounds scheduled bout. In Las Vegas Oquendo is 4-0 with three KOs, being his last fight there in 2007.

The main event will have former 154 pounds world champion Canelo Avarez (43-1-1, 31 KOs) facing the WBA junior middleweight titlist Erislandy Lara (19-1-2, 12 KOs) in a 12 rounds scheduled non-title fight.
