From his reputation as a rising star. He won the title by upset pound-for-pound king Vasily Lomachenko in his previous fight. He will be out of the ring for eight and a half months when he faces Campa in his first fight as a junior welterweight. The 30-year-old Mexican is a solid all-around fighter, but he hasn’t faced an opponent near Lopez’s class. He made a comeback in 2017 from a knockout loss to travelman Carlos Jimenez, leading 7-0-1 in his next eight appearances. This includes a third-round stoppage of Carlos Sanchez Valadez previously unbeaten in March, his most recent bout. Campa has fought only once in the United States back in 2015.
