The unified 135 lbs champion Teofimo Lopez looks eager to successfully defend his titles against George Kambosos Jr. on June 5, and he has already begun working to unleash a knockout win. Although Kambosos Jr. is unbeaten and may boast of his superior record (in terms of fights taken), the 23-year-old Lopez will seemingly be the favorite.

That said, ‘Take Over’ seems to have put a lot of effort into crafting his body shots. Following a heated face-off at a Triller press conference, both men appear to have built a bad-blood feud. Hence, their nearing collision can be extremely exciting to watch.

Meanwhile, Teofimo Lopez’s recent video reflects the effort he is putting in to fine-tune one of his principal weapons ahead of his first fight in 2021.

In the caption, Teofimo Lopez wrote, “Perfecting my craft everyday!”

‘Take Over’ Lopez is 16-0 in the professional circuit and has 12 KOs under his name. As he vanquished the great Vasyl Lomachenko in his last fight for the titles, Lopez can rightfully tout himself superior to Kambosos Jr. However, the Australian challenger will have his chances in the fight. Hence, he can rightfully look into the eyes of Teofimo Lopez on June 5 and believe that he will leave with the titles.
