Lightweight king Teofimo Lopez had a sensational 2020. Now, he has given an update on his return to the ring. Furthermore, the undefeated champion also explained the situation with his potential opponents.
This comes after news broke that the IBF has ordered a mandatory fight between Lopez and Kambosos Jr. Despite this being his mandatory, it is not a given that the fight would be his next. Therefore, the American boxer took to the airwaves.
Speaking on an Instagram live-stream that has since been uploaded to ESNEWS on YouTube, Lopez gave his update. “Y’all wanted to hear, the end of April, beginning of May, is my fight date, well my fight month. Against who? We’re in the works of it,” said Lopez.
He then revealed which two fighters they are considering. “We’re going to throw contracts at Devin, we’re going to throw contracts at Kambosos. Whatever we get back with, as long as we find a medium, we all agree on the terms, then that’s the fight.”
Therefore, this comment showed that it’s not yet a done-deal.
The ‘Takeover’ also spoke about how the events are taking their course in the right way. He referenced Haney’s comments on his potential return and said, “They all gonna know. Why you think Devin said April? Everything’s already falling into place, ladies and gents.”
Lopez then called for fans and followers to be patient until there is confirmation.
Lopez’s return in April-May is a little later than what one would expect. However, it is because of the injury he suffered in the Lomachenko fight that has kept him out this long. Nonetheless, it may have helped match timelines with Devin Haney. Who do you think Teofimo Lopez will fight next?
