George Kambosos Dad:- An unquestionable lightweight on the current squad is the 28-year-old George Kambosos Jr. Father Teofimo Lopez has been criticized for his behavior in the wake of his upset defeat by Australia in New York.
Both sides were on edge before the Madison Square Garden bout because of Lopez’s near-fight with the Australian and his father during a media workout. His father, on the other hand, was enraged and insisted that they had not lost a single round.
“It was an easy battle for him,” Lopez Sr. said to SecondsOut. He was victorious in each and every one of them. He was victorious in all of them. In the ring warming up, it is believed that Kambosos Jr. “stepped the line in our area” when Lopez’s dad “attacked” the Australian and his crew.
They had to separate Kambosos Sr. and Lopez Jr. because of the escalating emotions in the gym. “Kambosos, you’re going to have your a*** kicked,” shouted the father of current undisputed world champion Lopez.
There was no way that we could have gotten away with giving Kambosos any more than two, three, or even four rounds. During the opening round of the fight, 28-year-old Kambosos knocked down Lopez, 24, and even got up from the canvas himself in the 10th to secure the win.
This is based on CompuBox figures, which show that the traveling challenger scored 182 points against the champion’s 176. Kambosos also landed more powerful punches than Lopez, with 155 compared to 115.
In his family, he comes from Greek ancestry. His father, Jim Kambosos, serves as his co-manager as well. At an early age, he began playing rugby league with the Gymea Gorillas in a junior competition. His father enrolled him in boxing courses at the age of 11 since he was ridiculed for being overweight as a youngster. In the meantime, his mother’s identity is unclear.
At a recent open media workout, George Kambosos Jr.’s father battled with Teofimo Lopez Jr.’s father, Teofimo Lopez Sr. He may have crossed the line and “attacked” Kamboso Jr. and his squad as Lopez’s father was warming up in the ring.
As a consequence of his behavior, he was kicked out of the Church Street gym, but that didn’t affect his conduct during the battle. From 2013 to 2017, he held the IBF Pan Pacific lightweight championship and the Australian NSW, Australian, WBA-PABA, and WBA Oceania lightweight crowns. He fought a total of 20 times in his professional career, and he won all of them.
George Kambosos Jr. reportedly won the IBF, WBA, and WBO lightweight belts in the Theater at Madison Square Garden against Teófimo López. As the conflict progressed, Lopez’s guidance to his son became less and less effective. The Smith, a former world champion, was among those who saw Lopez’s struggles and said that the young man needed a “teacher” on his side.
Tony Jeffries, a seven-time British and European champion, also had harsh words for Lopez’s father. Experts were not the only ones to notice, as AFL player Scott Pendlebury was among the fans who were caught offside by Lopez Sr.’s antics.
