Teofimo Lopez vs. George Kambosos on Oct.fifth at Madison Sq. Backyard ⋆ Boxing Information 24

By Sean Jones: Contracts have been despatched to undisputed light-weight champion Teofimo Lopez and his IBF obligatory George Kambosos Jr. to signal for them to satisfy on October fifth in a PPV struggle at Madison Sq. Backyard in New York.

The Worldwide Boxing Federation’s deadline for the contracts to be signed is by Tuesday.

It’ll be enjoyable to see what occurs in the event that they don’t signal. By some means, it could be becoming, given how of a pure nightmare the Teofimo vs. Kambosos Jr struggle has been to get accomplished.

Mike Coppinger stories that Triller boss Ryan Kavanaugh says contracts have been despatched out to Teofimo (16-0, 12 KOs) and the unbeaten Kambosos Jr (19-0, 10 KOs) for them to ink and meet on October fifth.

It’ll be a reduction for boxing followers for Teofimo to FINALLY get this little mismatch out of the way in which so he can transfer ahead for extra critical contests, resembling a rematch with Vasily Lomachenko.

Teofimo vs. Kambosos priced at $19.99 on PPV

Boxing followers can order the Teofimo-Kambosos Jr. struggle for $19.99 on pay-per-view, in response to Mike Coppinger. Hopefully, Triller Combat Membership has a pleasant undercard to go along with this struggle as a result of they might want it.

American boxing followers aren’t going to be overjoyed on the considered paying to look at Teofimo obliterate Kambosos on October fifth.

They need to see aggressive fights involving Teofimo, ideally towards guys like Lomachenko, Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney, or Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.

Teofimo Lopez

I hate to say it, however Kambosos Jr isn’t a family identify within the U.S, as his two finest wins, a pair of cut up choice victories, over 34-year-old Lee Selby and 38-year-old Mickey Bey, don’t say a lot about his {qualifications} to be difficult for a world title.

Wouldn’t it have been asking an excessive amount of for the IBF to have a minimum of ordered Kambosos Jr to have fought Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz, Vasily Lomachenko, or Masayoshi Nakatani to earn his obligatory spot? I’m simply saying.

In hindsight, if Teofimo had vacated his IBF title, to start with, he wouldn’t be weighed down, trapped into taking a struggle that the U.S boxing followers have little curiosity in seeing.

Oh, I’m positive Kambosos Jr is in style in his native Australia, however that nation is a world away from the US, and this isn’t a must-see struggle for the People. It’s a must-NOT see kind of affair.

Teo could have some ring rust

Prime Rank had hoped of scheduling a rematch between Teofimo and Lomachenko for December, however that’s not taking place now, clearly.

By the point Teofimo faces Kambosos Jr on October fifth, the New York native can have been out of the ring for 12 months since beating Lomachenko final October.

Fortuitously for Teofimo, he’s younger at 24, and he’s not combating an actual risk. If Teofimo confronted somebody harmful like Isaac Cruz, Richard Commey, Nakatani, or Ryan Garcia, he might need some actual worries.

“Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh tells ESPN contracts being despatched right this moment for the Teofimo Lopez-George Kambosos title struggle. It can happen Tuesday, Oct. 5, at New York’s Hulu Theater at MSG. $19.99 for the PPV or $2.99 as a part of a month-to-month subscription. IBF deadline for contracts is tomorrow,” mentioned Mike Coppinger on Twitter.
