ATLANTA, GA (November 18, 2021) – Amateur standout, cruiserweight Najee Lopez, now (1-0, 1 KO) as a professional, will be making his way back to the ring this Friday, November 19, 2021, against Anthony Hollaway (3-1-2, 3 KOs). The 4-round bout will take place at the Buckhead Fight Club in Atlanta, GA, Lopez’ hometown. This event is being promoted by Garry Jonas of Pro Box Promotions.

“I’m ready for my second fight as a professional, especially that it’s taking place in my hometown of Atlanta,” said Lopez. “I will have a lot of support from family and friends that will be sitting ringside. I’m ready to take this think all the way to the top. I know it’s early in my career, but I’m ready to fight anyone anywhere.”

Standing 6’2”, Lopez brings a lot of experience to the ring, as he fought on the international stage as a highly decorated amateur. With power in both hands, Lopez has a fan friendly style that many in the boxing world are raving about.

“It’s exciting that Najee’s is fighting in his own backyard in just his second professional bout,” stated Van Newhouse. “He’s coming off a wonderful training camp lead by Marc Farrait and Asa Beard in Tampa FL, so I know he’s going to be well prepared. He’s in with a very formidable opponent so I expect Najee to showcase a full compliment of skills tomorrow behind his beautiful jab and amazing footwork.
