Coming into the fight, ‘Ferocious’ is honing his body to prepare for every adversary and his recent training appears gruesome to several fans. In a chat with ‘Behind The Gloves’, Kambosos Jr. addressed his workout routine and thrilled the entire fitness community.

He said, “I have been doing like, maybe seven thousand [situps] now. I am sc**wed from the great Manny Pacquiao who does just as much. So, I have built that threshold of just putting my body through hell and I want to hit him [Teofimo Lopez] nice and clean on the body.”

Akin to George Kambosos Jr., Teofimo Lopez, also unbeaten, is arguably the biggest lightweight superstar from the active roster. Considering this, a win over ‘Take Over’, would uplift ‘Ferocious’ to new heights.
