There is no doubt in the fact that Americans are not happy with Teofimo Lopez for his constant poor performance but the boxer is assured of winning the world title at the ESPN televised triple-header on December 14th. One of the main reasons for winning the world title is to prove the critics wrong and gaining their support back. Lopez has recently made a very convincing statement about winning the fight and thus achieved half of the goal of getting his support system back. According to the GTV Ghana report, in his statement about the fight, Lopez couldn’t resist giving a heads up to his challenger, Richard Commey. He said he is all set to put Commey to sleep as he is the major obstacle in his way of winning the world title and his support system back. Ghana
Teofimo Lopez was exclusively interviewed by the boxing channel where he talked about the ESPN televised triple-headed in detail. He said he is very glad about the location of the fight which is Madison Square Garden as it was his dream to win his first world title at that very location. His exact words are, “I’m finally back at Madison Square Garden, the place where I always wanted to win my first world title.” Moreover, while talking about the critics Lopez said he is going to win his supporters back by giving them a spectacular win.
Lopez also expressed the fact that he really respects Commey as he is a great boxer but when they would be in a ring to fight, he would make sure to defeat him. He said, “I believe this fight will shut up all of the critics and prove to everyone that I back up my talking in the ring. I respect Commey as a champion, but when we’re in that ring, it’s going to be lights out for him. Come December 14, I am officially taking over the lightweight division.” (Ghana)
Lopez lost the faith of his supporters after the July 19th fight with the Japanese well-known boxer, Masayoshi Nakatani by taking the much-hyped 12-round decision. However, it seems like he has gained half of his supporters back just by giving such a convincing interview. We are so looking forward to December 14th to see who puts who to sleep.
