Can George Kambosos Jr. knockout Teofimo Lopez?

Lopez is the star of the division holding multiple belts. However, Kambosos Jr. is on a mission to dethrone ‘The Takeover.’ Given that Lopez is undefeated even after facing Vasyl Lomachenko, this will be harder than he claims. So can Kambosos Jr. actually knockout Teofimo Lopez?

The Australian may be a relatively unknown fighter in the division. Despite this, he is a supremely talented boxer with fast hands, good movement, and incredible speed. Moreover, his power could surprise opponents at 135 lbs.

In addition, the Australian has world champion experience in his locker. He has sparred Manny Pacquiao in the past, and has opened up on how much he learned from those sessions. If Kambosos Jr. can add up all his qualities, he has a good chance of beating Lopez.

However, Lopez has a great chin, and thus, his claim of a one-punch knockout seems a little too far-fetched.

What do you make of this warning from George Kambosos Jr. to Teofimo Lopez? Do you think the Australian has what it takes to knock out Lopez with one punch?
