Teofimo Lopez (16-0, 12 KOs) has a hard time taking the coronavirus and it is not known when he will be able to return to training. It is possible that the scheduled for September 11 fight with George Kambosos Jr. (19-0, 10 KO) will be postponed again.
The Lopez – Kamposos duel was originally scheduled for June 5th. The fight was postponed for two weeks due to a fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Logan Paul. Later, Lopez’s test tested positive for coronavirus, so the organizers tentatively set a new date for August 14. Several big boxing evenings have already been planned for this day, and this may entail a new postponement of the fight.
At stake are the WBA, WBO, IBF and WBC franchised lightweight belts in the Lopez vs. Kamposos encounter. Lopez has not entered the ring since last year’s victory over Vasily Lomachenko.
