Kambosos: I am living in Lopez’s head

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

IBF #1 lightweight George “Ferocious” Kambosos (19-0, 10 KOs) will challenge IBF, WBA, WBO 135 pound champion Teofimo Lopez (16-0, 12 KOs) in Madison Square Garden, New York City on November 27 and is confident he will have his hand raised in victory.

“I’m living in his head rent-free and that’s why he’s doing so many stupid things,” Kambosos told the AAP on Friday. “He’s smoking, drinking, and eating rubbish. He’s going to all these events like he’s a groupie following his favorite band. That’s not the behavior of a champion. He says his body is a temple, but he’s a fraud and I’m ready to expose him.”

  • this guy seemed cool and level headed with a good attitude, this will be a good fight…..then he brought Jordan and Kobe into it and i lost some respect. This is still going to be a good fight though.

  • Lopez better not underestimate Kambosos because Kambosos is hungry for the exposure, victory and for expanding his earning potential in the U.S.A.

  • Do we think that is going to be a good scrap for as long as it lasts no matter who wins?
    – Yes / No ?

    • Sure. Kambosos is hungry and game. Clearly not looking for a payday and a soft spot on the canvass.

      He is going to risk it all to win it all. That will be dramatic, no matter how it ends.

  • I seen some footage of this guy. Not that all impressed. I’d be shocked if he went the distance with Lopez. But who knows with all that inactivity can have an effect, but Kambosos hasn’t been active either.

  • Lopez doesn’t see Kambosos as anything more than an obligatory speed bump. Kambosos might as well talk it all up because after he gets sparked he be just another foreign opponent.

  • Um maybe cause lopez knows you are zero threat, you have been waiting a while for this ass whooping but not long to go now

  • Kambosos claims Lopez has been smoking! Smoking what…cigarettes? Does Kambosos think he’s fighting Ricardo Mayorga? The only think Lopez is gonna smoke is Kambosos, probably within 3 rounds. This fight has been nothing but a mirage though; I won’t be convinced that it will happen until they square off in the middle of the ring.

  • Beware the left hook Georgie Boy,it’s a game changer ………..I want to see George win but I think back to Fenech v Nelson 2 and can somehow see the same ending !

  • This is ludicrous to day the lest
    Better Talkin about the guy that best lomochenko..I didn’t catch the offer but take for instance Horn,/ Pacquiao.. Anyway Julius Log yo all of Yuse.Betniee
