Triller wins Teofimo-Kambosos purse bid

Triller Fight Club (TFC) took another massive step forward in its growing sports and entertainment business when it today won the purse bid to stage the IBF mandatory fight between undisputed lightweight champion Teófimo López and George Kambosos Jr. Triller bid $6 million, far outpacing Matchroom’s bid of $3.5 million and Top Rank’s bid of $2.3 million. The date and venue will be announced in the coming weeks.

This is the latest addition to a growing presence for Triller Fight Club. TFC’s April 17 card featuring Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren will be its first in a series of 2021 special events, following the debut Tyson vs. Jones PPV event in 2020.

  • hmmmm, thats a lot for this fight
    i guess thats one way to get in the game
    lots have come and gone this way 🙂

    • Yes, exactly! This bid has been described as “game-changing” for the sport. It’s only “game-changing” if it’s successful for Triller. Otherwise, it’s potentially bad for the sport.

  • Plus an undercard full of YouTubers and hip-hop delays between fights. Can’t wait.

  • Teofimo deserves this, he beat the one guy nobody said he could. Good luck champ!

  • This might be good for boxing
    The production for the last show was pretty good considering it was their first event. Lopez is pretty charismatic. Lets see if this experiment works out. This company seems to understand entertainment value. I wasnt a huge fan of the Tyson fight, but all the casuals seemed entertained, Lopez might excel on this platform because he isn’t a boring fighter.

  • Teofimo maybe losing focus.., keep working on your craft, fighting and winning the money will come….He had one major win….That doesn’t make you legit.., followed boxing too many years….seen fighters come and go…I hope that he stays focused.,fight top tier opponents and let his work in the ring determine his value.,.

  • Shame the fight wont be held in Australia now, however its a great payday for Kambosos Jr and more so Lopez. Lopez cant fight on the back foot which is what Kambosos will bring to the fight and just might get over the line with a SD.

    • yes Kambosos must be jumping with joy he is basically unknown and hardly fought anyone of note Bob Arum is right he is only at B level , has no hope of beating Lopez and he is getting 2 million , good luck and I hope he stays focused because if not it will be a short night but at least he will be a lot richer

  • Two is running his mouth about this. Guy thinks he’s worth so much. Won’t rematch Loma because he knows he’d lose. Forget the BS about Loma not putting in a rematch clause. That is the worst reason in history for not rematching. Now he’s hating on Arum for not paying top dollar for this fight. Kids a clown!

  • I like TL. He has a bit of character about him. For me he risked his 0 against the guy who many had as £4£ number 1 and won and deserves some decent money off the back of it.

  • Yes I love this kid teofimio is am American fighter,an we need more American fighters to hold titles like we use to,he’s going to beat all the other guys in he division, but maybe Ryan Garcia.
