Teofimo Lopez vs Jamaine Ortiz for the former's WBO super lightweight world title late on Thursday night in Las Vegas, just three days before the Super Bowl. Lopez starts as favorite but he's come unstuck before when looking too far ahead — read on for how to watch Lopez vs Ortiz live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

The atmosphere is starting to build on fight day in Las Vegas. The weigh ins have been done and Lopez has been full of bravado in the final press conference 24 hours before fight night. The Takeover is promising he's not overlooking his opponent and expects a stoppage.

Oriz, meanwhile, has promised a knockout to put the cat among the pigeons in the super lightweight division. He's also got half an eye on the other big event in town. "There's no better week to be world champion than Super Bowl week," he said at the weigh in. He's got a point. And angry, too. "There hasn't been respect. It's a fight. I'm coming here to take his head off."

Brooklyn fighter Lopez has always had plenty to say for himself, but the unanimous decision he won last time out against Josh Taylor to win the WBO super lightweight world title was the 26-year-old's best performance since beating Vasily Lomachenko in October 2020. 

The Takeover's lightning hand speed and heavy hitting make him a match for anyone but the New Yorker was guilty of overlooking George Kambosos to lose his titles in November 2021 and has been rebuilding since. With mega fights agains Devin Haney and Terence Crawford on the horizon, he can't make the same mistake again.

Ortiz may not be the biggest name but the 27-year-old from Worcester, Massachusetts, knows he's got enough gunpowder in his fights to challenge heavy favorite Lopez. The Technician took Lomachenko the distance in their October 2022 bout and has beaten former WBO junior lightweight champion Jamel Herring. Can he go on to win the first world title fight of his career?
