The recent statement by Floyd Mayweather, who is the promoter of the young featherweight fighter Jervonta Davis, that in the event of a fight between his fighter and Teofimo Lopez, he will be side A, Teofimo himself considers simply laughable.
It is difficult to argue with the fact that Lopez is fully entitled to this. Even though Davis defeated Leo Santa Cruz in his last fight, everyone understood that Leo had already begun to descend from his peak and this weight category was far from his optimal. At the same time, the popularity of Teofimo Lopez, in particular, his TV rating of the fight against Vasily Lomachenko, now exceeds all conceivable and inconceivable limits.
“Floyd said Jervonta Davis should be side A if he fights me. Well, this statement is all about Floyd. Now, if Mayweather himself will fight with me, then he will be side A, but certainly not Jervont Davis. He didn’t even come close to it. “
“Gervonta Davis beat Leo Santa Cruz, but then moved up one or two weight classes. I didn’t even watch this fight. I won’t pay $ 75 to watch Jervonta Davis fight and see the outcome that I already knew in advance. “
