Teofimo Lopez will face George Kambosos Jr on Saturday night in New York.
The undisputed lightweight champions returns to the ring after a lengthy absence from our TV screens and will be taking on the IBF mandatory challenger in a heated bout.
NOVIBET – 30/1 Lopez to beat Kambosos by KO, TKO or DQ*
Fans have been deprived of watching ‘The Takeover’ as his last fight took place just over a year ago when he defeated Vasyl Lomachenko.
After being struck down with COVID, former fight promoters Triller then pulled out of two further dates before DAZN and Eddie Hearn of Matchroom stepped in to provide a platform for one of boxing’s brightest stars.
In October, the 24-year-old clashed with Haney at Mikey Garcia’s shock defeat to Sandor Martin and also called out Davis in June for ‘ducking him’.
Just days before his ring return, Lopez told talkSPORT’s Michael Benson that he ‘will knock them out with one punch’.
“Everybody wants to tune in to see me fight these guys and I believe that they want to see their guys fight me.
“So I don’t see any problems with this and whoever they put in front of me, I will beat them.”
“Just line them up,” he added. “You could line them up altogether and I will knock them out with one punch.
“We cut that ‘Four King’s’ BS and we push it to the side.”
