Is Teofimo Lopez overlooking George Kambosos Jr. and preparing for bigger fights? The challenger sure seems to think so.
Ahead of Saturday’s much-anticipated bout, Kambosos declared that Lopez simply “does not want it as bad as I want it.” He is ready for his opportunity to capture the WBA, WBO, IBF lightweight world titles and WBC franchise title.
“When he has been in the bright lights and enjoying his time and having fun and laughing it up. No problem. You’re the big celebrity. You’re in the bright lights,” Kambosos said. “I’ve been in the dark, in the trenches, in the gym. The hard work, the blood, sweat and tears. I’m hungry. He says he’s hungry. He’s lying. I am hungry.”
