It's all on the line in Las Vegas this weekend as Ukraine’s three-weight boxing king takes on one of the sport's rising stars. The bout is set to be an intriguing showdown and you won't need miss a second of the action - no matter where you are in the world - by following our Vasiliy Lomachenko vs Teofimo Lopez live stream.
The Lomachenko vs Lopez fight is set to take place on Saturday, October 17 at the MGM Grand Conference Center on the Las Vegas strip in Nevada.
The main card is set to start at 10pm ET. So you can expect the ring walk to begin at around midnight ET / 9pm PT in the US and on Sunday at around 5am BST for UK and 3pm AEDT and you can access the same coverage you would at home from wherever you are by using a VPN.
A two-time Olympic champ, Lomachenko sealed his reputation as a legend of the ring back in August last year after producing a battling display to beat Britain's Luke Campbell on points to add the WBC lightweight title to his WBA and WBO belts.
The 31-year-old Ukrainian has one of the best ever records in professional boxing, having won a world title in his third professional fight, before becoming a two-weight champion in his seventh and a three-weight world champion by the time of his twelfth - all this on top of his fearsome amateur record of 396 wins to one loss.
Putting all three of his belts on the line, Lomachenko now looks to become the undisputed lightweight king as he prepares to face brash New Yorker Teofimo Lopez. At 23, nine years Lomachenko's junior, Lopez holds the IBF title and boasts a record of 15-0, with 12 of those wins coming via knockout.
His most recent appearance in the ring came with a win over experienced Ghanaian Richard Commey - a victory that signalled his entrance to boxing's big time.
With Alex Saucedo and Arnold Barboza set to meet in a Junior Welterweight clash on the undercard before the main event, this looks like being an unmissable night's worth of action for boxing fans.
