Teon Kennedy To Face Alejandro Lopez on August 13

Atlantic City, NJ—Super bantamweight Teon Kennedy will defend his North American Boxing Association (NABA) title in a scheduled 12-round contest against Alejandro Lopez, of Tijuana, Mexico, on Saturday evening, Aug. 13, in the Grand Ballroom at Bally’s Atlantic City.  First of seven fights will be 7 p.m.

The Kennedy-Lopez fight will be televised by Fox Sports Net beginning at 9 p.m. part of the Top Rank Live! Series.  

This will mark Kennedy’s first fight since March 26 when he defeated previously unbeaten Jorge Diaz, of New Brunswick, NJ, in a thrilling 12-round fight at Boardwalk Hall.  Kennedy retained his United States Boxing Association (USBA) title in that match and moved closer to a world title opportunity.

A pro since 2007, the 25-year-old Kennedy is 17-0-1, 7 K0s.  He is ranked No. 3 in the world by the IBF, No. 13 by the WBO, No. 14 by the WBA, No. 20 by the WBC.

Lopez, 23, turned pro in 2003 and is 21-2, 7 K0s.  In his last fight May 28 in Mexicali, he earned an eight-round decision over Eduardo Arcos, of Tijuana.

The only foe common to both men is Diaz, who out-pointed Lopez over eight rounds March 20, 2010, in Key West, FL.  In that fight, Lopez was down in each of the first two rounds, but rallied to nearly beat Diaz, losing by scores of 76-74 on all three scorecards.

Featherweights Matt Remillard, of Hartford, CT, and Aaron Garcia, of Visa, CA, collide in the scheduled eight-round co-feature.

Remillard, 25, is hoping to rebound from his March 26 loss at Boardwalk Hall to world-rated Mikey Garcia, of Oxnard, CA.  A pro since 2005, Remillard is 23-1, 13 K0s.  Garcia is 10-2-2, 2 K0s.

Five additional fights complete the card.
