Mike Arnaoutis Knows This Might Be His Last Big Chance


Battle tested veterans “Mighty” Mike Arnaoutis, 24-9-2 (11 KO’s), Astoria, NY and Josesito Lopez, 30-6 (18 KO’s), Riverside, CA, lock horns this Friday at The Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, CA, in a 10 round Welterweight showdown. 


The fight will be shown on the Fox 1 Sports Network and airs at 10pm EST.


Both fighters are coming off losses and understand that this is truly a crossroads fight.  In his last fight on July 20th, Arnaoutis pushed highly touted undefeated prospect Chris Algieri to the limit losing a very hard fought 10 round bout.  


During his career, Arnaoutis has challenged for a world title against Ricardo Torres (split decision) and has fought many top fighters including Delvin Rodriguez, Victor Ortiz, Kendall Holt, and current Jr. Welterweight champion Danny Garcia.


Arnaoutis knows that this may be his last chance to make himself a viable contender again and has prepared very hard for Lopez who is coming off losses to World Champions Canelo Alvarez and Marcos Maidana.


Arnaoutis has been promoted by Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing for much of his career.  Founder and CEO of Star Boxing Joe DeGuardia shared these thoughts about Arnaoutis, “I have been with Mike for a long time now.  There have some highs and some lows during that time.  However, after the effort he put forth in his last fight against Chris Algieri I believe he still has the ability to compete at a high level and I am expecting him to fight with the spirit he will need to be victorious in his fight with Josesito Lopez.  He must take advantage of this opportunity if he wants to compete at the top of the sport”.


Lopez vs. Arnaoutis headlines an exciting show presented by Golden Boy Promotions in association with Goossen Tutor Promotions, Thompson Boxing and Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing and sponsored by Corona and O’Reilly Auto Parts.
