Teofimo Lopez assured that there is no going back in his break with the promoter Top rank, after an agreement was not reached and the defense of the lightweight title of the FIB against George Kambosos was auctioned.
“It is made for me. There is a lot of damage that has been done in recent months, “he commented. Theophimus in an interview with Fighthub. “The damage is done and there is no way I will regret it and go backwards.”
Nevertheless, Lopez He assured that he is not worried about a possible internal punishment or that the promoter sends him to the freezer after not reaching an economic agreement for his mandatory defense. On the contrary, he said that his fight will be a success and will bring a lot of interest.
“I’m not worried at all,” he confessed Theophimus. “I know these things are at stake a lot, but for some reason I feel like this will work out in my favor. Next May 29 or June 5, the commentators on the fight will be great. There will be more eyes for this sport ”.
I would look for the winner of Taylor vs. Ramirez.
About the future after his fight with Kambosos, Teofimo Lopez did not hide his desire to search for the winner of the match between Jose Ramirez and Josh taylor.
“There are many possibilities, I do not see any reason why I can not go against the winner of that fight,” he considered.
Theophimus He assured that he would have no problem climbing to 140 pounds, but everything would depend on the winner and not on his conflict with Top rank.
“The problems should not affect the fight of the future,” he mentioned. “It depends on Ramirez and Taylor what they want to do. If they want to go to 147 or stay in the division to fight me and shut my mouth. If I decide to go up after being undisputed champion at 135, it should be mandatory for any of them. “
However, if Theophimus decides to stay at 135, as everything points out, he would have ahead to show his power against Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney or Gervonta davis to increase your earnings and credibility in the ring.
