Teofimo Lopez Sr.: “We will most likely fight Kamposos at Madison Square Garden”

Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and coach of undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, confirmed that his son’s fight against mandatory IBF contender George Kambozos could take place in American New York, and not in Australia, as originally planned …

“We will most likely fight Kamposos at Madison Square Garden as Australia is banned [на въезд иностранцев]… We have to fight a mandatory challenger. They refuse to take compensation so that we can fight someone else. So this is the fight we have to fight.

Something big is coming. Soon everyone will know about everything. Now we are competently engaged in business. We made a coup, defeated the fighter we were supposed to defeat. Now we will think about making money, but at the same time, about defending our titles. That is why we are fighting with Kambosos, “said Teofimo Lopez Sr. in an interview with the YouTube channel World Combat Sports.
