After numerous failed negotiations Teofimo Lopez will face George Kambosos to defend his WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, and The Ring lightweight titles. The bout will take place on November 27, 2021 at the Hulu Theater in New York City.
However, the pair was previously scheduled to fight on June 19 at Miami. But the bout got cancelled as Lopez tested positive for Covid-19. Later they tried to pick a date in August which was a failed attempt as finding a new venue was difficult due to Covid-19 restrictions. After many negotiations and attempts the date is finalized on Nov 27.
In his last fight Lopez retained his IBF lightweight title while won other titles from Ukrainian two-time Olympic champion Vasiliy Lomachenko. However, Lomachenko wanted a rematch which did not work. Moreover, American lightweight Devin Haney and Kambosos Jr. also wanted to fight Teofimo Lopez.
Top Rank came to the situation to deal with the Lopez vs Kambosos Jr fight, but they offered $1.25 million to Lopez. But, he didn’t agree to that and as a result the fight went to purse bid. The Triller won the bid for $6 million. However, Triller changed the fight date several times and IBF had found Triller in default of its contract obligation. As a consequence, the right to host the fight was awarded to the second highest bidder.
Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom bids for $3.506M and they will be hosting the fight. So, how much will the fighter earn from this fight? Let’s get to know each other.
