Unified lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez doesn’t believe George Kambosos Jr. has what it takes to become an elite-level 135 pounder. Despite his rival’s undefeated record and bold claims, Lopez envisions himself stopping the fight in the first round. He has all the reasons to remain confident. However, a rival like Kambosos Jr. clearly calls for some respect.
That said, ‘The Takeover’ isn’t ready to offer any. He has belittled the Australian star’s chances against him in an in-ring affair, just days before locking horns. When asked to predict an outcome of their 12-rounds headlining battle, Lopez had a pretty simple response.
In a chat with iFL TV, Teofimo Lopez said, “One round man, one round. He is too small. People didn’t tell this kid man, he is a 130 pounder, He ain’t a 135 pounder, I can see on his body, he a natural. If anything. He is better off at 130 than 135. He ain’t ready for this and I am gonna show this boy. I’m gonna show him. I mean, like if it ain’t, if it ain’t nobody that learned. It’s gonna be him.”
After vanquishing Vasyl Lomachenko in 2020, it’s been more than a year since Lopez has fought. His fight against Kambosos Jr. would have happened months back, if not for the multiple delays.
Both Lopez and Kambosos Jr. have waited for too long to throw hands at each other. Now, on November 27, they will get to trade blows.
Can George Kambosos Jr. survive Teofimo Lopez?
On paper, George Kambosos Jr. reflects better numbers than Teofimo Lopez. 19-0 as a professional, the Australian pugilist has more experience than ‘The Takeover’ Lopez. However, Lopez has danced around with some of the best names in the division and has been flawless. His latest win against Vasyl Lomachenko was a historic achievement and justifies Lopez’s spot as the 135 lbs kingpin.
As George Kambosos Jr. is undefeated, he will have every ability to survive ‘The Takeover’. Also as this is boxing, numbers will go out of the window on November 27 and ‘Ferocious’ will have his fair chances of shocking the world.
