Teofimo Lopez’s fight against mandatory challenger George Kambosos Jr. has been moved back to June 19.

The fight had been originally planned for June 5 but has been delayed by a fortnight, and forms part of a dual-headline card with Franchon Crews-Dezurn and Elin Cederroos fighting to become the undisputed women’s super middleweight champion.

Kambosos is the IBF mandatory for Lopez, who holds the IBF, WBA, WBC and WBO titles after defeating Vasiliy Lomachenko in an upset victory last year.

Speaking to Yahoo Sport, Kambosos said he was confident there was a way through his opponent’s guard.

“Absolutely 100 percent, I am leaving with those belts,” Kambosos said. “There are holes in his game and things I will be able to take advantage of and you will see that on June 19.”
