The absolute lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO), criticized undefeated compatriot Davin Haney (25-0-0, 15 KO) in an interview with the media even before his today’s performance against Cuban Yuriorkis Gamboa (30-4-0, 18 KO), questioning his opposition.
“I think Devin hasn’t even gotten to the point of fighting third-tier fighters yet. He fights Gamboa, who I think is a fourth-tier fighter.
Look, if I am talking about our possible fight, it is only to declare myself. Our fight is the right to declare ourselves. When I beat him, many will forget about Davin Haney, “Lopez said.
