By Matt Lieberman: George Kambosos Jr. says he’s willing to give the “delusional” former unified lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez a rematch at 135 or 140 in Australia. Kambosos (20-0, 13 KOs) would be willing to go up to 140 to face Teofimo (16-1, 12 KOs) a second time.

Teofimo said recently that he thinks DAZN set him up in his 12-round split decision loss to Kambosos on November 27th in New York. The 24-year-old Teofimo seems to be taking his loss really hard and is not willing to accept it.

Teofimo is fighting at 140 now, and it’s doubtful that he would be willing to fight Kambosos again even if the Australian fighter comes up in weight.

Kambosos has a fight this summer against WBC lightweight champion Devin Haney on June 4th in Melbourne, Australia. If Haney wins, the two will meet in a rematch.

“Like I said to him in the ring after the fight. ‘You’re delusional, brother,'” said George Kambosos Jr. to Fighthype in reacting to Teofimo Lopez believing he was set up by DAZN in being robbed of victory.

“Get off whatever you’re own and get yourself back in the gym, because you’re a talented kid. I’m not going to disrespect you,” Kambosos Jr. continued about his belief that Teofimo is confused.

“You need to zone in and move away from certain people. That’s a thing of the past. I hope he does great with whatever he does in the future.

“If you want to fight again let’s fight again. Come see me in my hometown now,” said Kambosos Jr. offering Teofimo a rematch. “I’m always open to doing big fights.

“We’ll see. We could do it at 140 no problem. I spar middleweights, so what do I care? Weight is no issue for me. So, we’ll do it forever, but I said this can go two ways for him,” said Kambosos about him being willing to fight Teofimo at light welterweight.

“You can either bounce back like a champion and we’ll have to wait and see or you go down a bad road, which I think could be the case now,” said Kambosos noting that Teofimo is taking his loss hard.

“Anyway, he’ll probably hear this and maybe it motivates him to get back in the gym,” said Kambosos.

“The whole s*** was a scheme. They were with DAZN and I was on the DAZN platform. They gave it to Kambosos because they knew what I was going to do with it,” said Teofimo to Fight Hub TV about his belief his fight with Kambosos was fixed.

“I was going to drop them [vacate], and then it’s a longer process for Devin to become undisputed. It’s all a game. Everything is already made. I had to see that for myself.

“They already knew who won even before they announced it. See the tapes,” said Teofimo.
