While Tim Tszyu might be making all the headlines in Australian boxing, George Kombosos Jr. this weekend has the opportunity to steal that limelight when he meets WBA, WBO, and IBF lightweight titleholder Teofimo Lopez at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York.
The bout has had a series of hurdles and complications which included Lopez testing positive for COVID-19 just days before their originally planned June 20 (AEST) bout in Miami. IBF then ruled that Thriller was in default of its contractual obligations to stage the bout and awarded the fight to Matchroom Boxing.
Lopez brings a 16-0 (12 KO’s) record while Kambosos Jr., is undefeated after 19 bouts, with 10 KO’s to his name. Kambosos won a split decision against Lee Selby in his last outing back in October 2020 while Lopez in the same month, dethroned Vasyl Lomachenko by unanimous decision.
