Teofimo Lopez: I choose to use my power to be a good example

“By now you’ve heard the news that I have had to withdraw from the fight due to COVID,” Teofimo Lopez posted on Twitter. “Being a champion means doing hard things. NO EXCEPTIONS. And I choose to keep my fellow athletes safe.”

“I am devastated to disappoint so many people. I know the sacrifices we have all made to get here. I believe I am doing the right thing. I don’t want to infect anybody. Sport has power. I choose to use my power to be a good example.”

“The most powerful thing I can do is protect those I love – and I love the sport of boxing and all of the athletes, fans, trainers, my sponsors and promoters. Thank you everyone for your well wishes. I appreciate your support!”

George Kambosos Jr: I will be Champion

“Absolutely devastated, Kambosos Jr captioned a statement on Twitter (see below). “I will be Champion. Thank you to everyone for the support world wide.”

Once Lopez vs Kambosos finally happens, boxing fans will have a chance to enjoy a highly anticipated fight live on FITE TV, as well as the venue, with tickets being on sale.
