Junior featherweight titlist Juan Manuel Lopez (26-0, 24 KOs), fresh from a dominant ninth-round TKO of Olivier Lontchi on June 27, likely will make his next defense against rugged Rogers Mtagwa (26-12-2, 18 KOs). Top Rank already has Lopez scheduled to defend in the main event of a "Latin Fury" pay-per-view card at the Madison Square Garden Theater in New York on Sept. 26 with featherweight titlist Yuriorkis Gamboa defending in the co-feature (as long as Gamboa wins July 25). Top Rank's Carl Moretti told Mtagwa is the probable opponent, and Mtagwa promoter Russell Peltz said, "We have agreed to fight him." Mtagwa has won three in a row, including a 10th-round knockout of Tomas Villa in November in one of 2008's most exciting fights.

This fight will be a War. The Mtagwa vs Villa fight was probably the fight of 2008 - it had everything.

The downfall for Rogers Mtagwa is that he is not hard to hit - so I expect him to get Ko'd in this one. Be fun while it lasts though.
