Boxing fans will have to wait a few more weeks to see Teofimo Lopez defend three of the four lightweight boxing world championships against George Kambosos. Following initial reports from BoxingScene.com, Kambosos has confirmed this Yahoo Sports that the fight has been postponed from June 5th to June 19th. The fight will be at the loanDepot park in Miami as it was originally planned.
The June 5 appointment meant Lopez vs. Kambosos, which will air in the Triller video, will share the weekend with an exhibition between Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul on June 6, also in Miami.
The move to June 19 avoids potential conflicts with the event, which is expected to attract attention with a huge social media superstar square. However, he places Lopez and Kambosos in direct conflict with several other notorious fighters.
The title of the Showtime headline scheduled for tonight is WBC middleweight champion Jermall Charlo and Juan Macias Montiel. Also on that date, ESPN will televise a fight between IBF weight champion Naoya Inoue and Michael Dasmarinas. Eventually, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. will face former UFC champion Anderson Silva in a 10-round boxing match, with Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. and Hector Camacho Jr.
The thriller took a big hit in Lopez’s first fight as a unified champion, impressing the boxing world by offering just over $ 6 million when he won the Cambodian fight, surpassing Matchroom Sport’s next highest bid of $ 3.56 million. The move was thought to be an effort to show Triller’s commitment to the sport by expanding beyond events with social media stars and retired ring legends.
