Geroge Kambosos has vowed to beat Teofimo Lopez next month. The Australian contender will finally get his mandatory shot at Lopez’s lightweight title when he faces the New Yorker on October 4th at the Hulu Theater inside Madison Square Garden.
Both fighters are inactive since last October following several postponements to the contest due to multiple reasons. Lopez shocked the world last year when defeating Vasiliy Lomachenko whilst Kambosos put his name in the mix by outpointing Lee Selby a few weeks later. The latter is promising to teach Lopez a lesson.
“I’m going to beat this guy by any means necessary,” Kambosos said when speaking with the Sydney Morning Herald. “It’s been a long time coming, and I don’t see any way he can beat me. They talk about certain aspects of his game, but my game is better all around.

“I don’t think he deserves to be a champion. He takes it for granted. He laps it up too much, wants to show off too much. He’s not a true champ and the fans see that. A lot of fans see his fakeness. He needs a big wake-up call, he needs to be humbled, and I’m coming to do that.”
