PPV Price For Teofimo Lopez vs. George Kambosos Revealed
The pay-per-view price for Teofimo Lopez vs. George Kambosos has been revealed.
Lopez and Kambosos are set to throw down on June 19. Lopez will be putting the WBA, IBF, WBO, The Ring, and WBC (Franchise) Lightweight Titles on the line. The bout is being promoted by Triller.
Fight fans will have to shell out $59.99 to watch the PPV. Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh has insisted that the presentation will cater to the boxing purists. He said performances will go hand-in-hand with the action and viewers won’t be “waiting for fights” as they had with Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren.
Lopez’s trainer and father told Fight Hype that he doesn’t view Kambosos as a credible threat to his son (via Bad Left Hook).
“I’m not even worried about this guy (Kambosos). I haven’t even looked at video of him — I’m gonna do it once the camp starts on March 29th. That’s when I’m gonna start looking at his videotapes and see what he does. But what I’ve seen, he fights a little bit like — a lot like Diego Magdaleno, face forward, throwing a lot of punches. That’s an easy fight for my son. We want those guys to come forward. Lomachenko evaded my son because he didn’t want to get knocked out. And you saw in the last round we almost had him, when he started committing.”
Kambosos fired back, telling Pro Boxing Fans that Lopez has a suspect chin (h/t BoxingScene).
“My skills and my defense are very underrated. Lopez is going to find out the hard way, they think they’re coming up against one style but I’ve got many styles I adapt, I’m a true champion, I adapt.
“I can’t wait for this fight, I see many holes in this kid’s game and we know what we’ve got to do. I’m coming up with a fantastic game plan with my team. I’ve been putting in work, I’m hitting harder than ever, I’m faster than ever and [I’m going to get the] victory by any means.
“I know this kid’s got a suspect chin. If I can crack him with one shot, the speed and power that I possess and the explosive shots that I pop off, don’t be surprised if he goes down in three [rounds]. They’ve been saying three [rounds], sometimes things go the other way.
“But I’m fully prepared for whatever way this fight goes, we’ve seen in many of my fights that I love the 12 rounds.”
