This struggle has been a ball & chain for the 24-year-old Teofimo ever because it was signed, and it’s good that it’s nearly right here.  Let’s make this clear from the leap. Teofimo vs. Kambosos Jr. is NOT a extremely anticipated struggle.

It’s extra like a dental go to than a struggle that the boxing public is extremely anticipating as a result of it’s on a pay-per-view, it’s a mismatch, and it’s NOT the struggle that the followers need to see involving Teofimo.

Boxing followers need to see Teofimo preventing Vasily Lomachenko once more, however Teo doesn’t need any of that smoke now that Loma is wholesome.

Individuals can be barely enthusiastic about seeing Teofimo struggle Kambosos Jr. if the match was proven on common ESPN or another free channel, however followers don’t need to pay to see Teo blast a hopeless Joe that doesn’t belong in the identical ring with him.

With all the rubbish celeb boxing occasions which have been shoved down followers’ throats, they need to see a high quality struggle for a change. Sean Jones hates to say it, however Teofimo vs. Kambosos Jr. is extra of the identical clown present kind of struggle that we’ve been watching currently. The place did the IBF discover this man?

Teofimo Lopez

Kambosos earned his IBF necessary by beating the previous his prime 34-year-old Lee Selby by a 12 spherical cut up choice. He didn’t must struggle somebody good like Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz, Lomachenko, Jorge Linares, Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis, or Devin Haney.

Teofimo was imagined to have gotten this albatross stage struggle out of the way in which on June nineteenth, however then he got here down with COVID-19.

There’s no phrase whether or not Teofimo was one of many anti-vaxxers or if he was vaccinated and he bought a breakthrough infarction from the delta variant type of the dreaded COVID-19. Anyway, Teofimo has now reportedly recovered from his COVID, and we’ll see if he’s having any lingering results from the sickness when he steps contained in the ring on October 4th.

Teofimo’s declare to fame in his quick professional profession was his victory over Vasily Lomachenko on October seventeenth final 12 months. Sadly, Teofimo didn’t get full credit score for the win as a result of Lomachenko fought with a torn-up proper shoulder and fought him with one arm.

Even with the harm, Lomachenko took over the struggle within the second half and had Teofimo wanting in severe misery. Teofimo fell aside bodily and mentally and didn’t pull issues collectively till the twelfth.

The scores have been far and wide, worse than ridiculous scores for the Oscar Valdez vs. Robson Conceicao struggle final Friday. Yeah, Teofimo did sufficient to deserve the win over Lomachenko, however simply BARELY. It was razor shut, however not with the foolish scores that have been turned in by the judges, who gave it to Teofimo by these oddball scores:

  • 116-111
  • 119-109 – wow!
  • 116-112

Kambosos Jr is a few man who has a few fluff wins over 37-year-old Mickey Bey and 34–year-old Lee Selby.

That’s principally it, and for some purpose, the IBF felt these wins have been ok to make Kambosis Jr. #1 of their rankings and the necessary.

If Sean Jones have been accountable for the IBF, he’d say ‘Kambosos Jr. must be some actual fighters for him to earn the necessary spot. Based mostly on his empty resume, I can’t rank him any larger than the #15 spot, and that’s me being sort.’

This struggle is a gimme for Teofimo, and hopefully, we see high quality from him sooner or later. Will probably be a pity if Teofimo chooses to take straightforward fights and keep away from the gifted guys as soon as he strikes as much as 140.
