A four-time amateur national Canadian champion, the Toronto-born Lo Greco turned pro in 2006 and quickly made a name for himself as one of the top fighters from Canada. The 31-year-old also fought in Germany, Italy and Hungary before making his U.S. debut in 2012 by defeating Hector Orozco in Atlantic City. He racked up a 25-0 record to begin his career and most recently was a late-sub in a fight that he lost to rising star Errol Spence Jr.
Born in Nigeria, but fighting out of Oxnard, Omotosois looking to bounce back after a hard fought defeat to undefeated Sammy Vasquez Jr. in June.
