Ahead of the fight, the mental warfare between Kambosos Jr. and Lopez has already begun. But for now, it’s only the Australian pugilist who’s painting shots at the unified lightweight king. In a fresh conversation with Fighthype, he said, “As I said, I’m coming to take this kid’s head off.”

“It’s a real fight. I triggered him really fast. It’s mental warfare, and I’m the best when it comes to that. Not only am I an elite fighter, but mentally, I destroy guys.”

‘Ferocious’, with a sublime track record of 19-0, definitely looks strong on paper against Teofimo Lopez. Until now, Kambosos Jr. has proven his mettle in every fight he’s taken and will look to do the same against Lopez in June.
