George Kambosos is looking to test the “suspect chin” of Teofimo Lopez when they square off for the WBA ‘Super’, IBF, WBO and WBC Franchise belts on June 5.
Lopez beat Vasiliy Lomachenko in October to become undisputed at lightweight. The 23-year-old will attempt to continue his rise to superstardom by defending his belts against Kambosos on Triller pay-per-view.
The Australian believes he’s got the power to finish Lopez early and also the skills to outbox the champion over 12 rounds.
“My skills and my defense are very underrated,” Kambosos told Pro Boxing Fans.
“Lopez is going to find out the hard way, they think they’re coming up against one style but I’ve got many styles I adapt, I’m a true champion, I adapt.
“I can’t wait for this fight, I see many holes in this kid’s game and we know what we’ve got to do. I’m coming up with a fantastic game plan with my team. I’ve been putting in work, I’m hitting harder than ever, I’m faster than ever and [I’m going to get the] victory by any means.
Kambosos won’t be suprised if he takes out Lopez inside three rounds.
“I know this kid’s got a suspect chin,” Kambosos said. “If I can crack him with one shot, the speed and power that I possess and the explosive shots that I pop off, don’t be surprised if he goes down in three [rounds]. They’ve been saying three [rounds], sometimes things go the other way.
“But I’m fully prepared for whatever way this fight goes, we’ve seen in many of my fights that I love the 12 rounds.” (Transcribed by Boxing Scene)
Kambosos earned his shot at the champion with split decision win over Lee Selby in October. The 27-year-old boasts an undefeated record after 19 professional fights.
Do you agree with George Kambosos? Is Teofimo Lopez’s chin suspect?
