George Kambosos blasts Teofimo Lopez over his excuses after his poor performance against Sandor Martin

By Brian Webber: George Kambosos Jr took a shot at Teofimo Lopez last Saturday night after his excuse-filled victory over Sandor Martin at Madison Square Garden in New York.

Kambosos, who many feel is the one who physically & mentally ruined th former unified lightweight champion Teofimo (18-1, 13 KOs) with the beating he inflicted upon him last year, says the fans aren’t buying his “delusional excuses.

After Teofimo’s loss to Kambosos last year, he blamed his defeat on an esophagus issue, as well as him being drained from making the 135-lb limit.

Some boxing fans bought the excuse until after seeing Teo look just as poor in his last two fights since moving up to 140 against Pedro Campa and Sandor Martin.

“You guys got to give me a better dance partner. This guy was running,” said Teofimo to ESPN after the fight, blaming Sandor for why he didn’t impress. “You was dancing & running.

Thus far, Top Rank is still sticking by Teofimo’s side, and not ready to jettison the New Yorker. But there’s a very real chance that they’ll need to dump Teo soon after he’s taken apart by 140-lb champions Josh Taylor or Regis Prograis.

Top Rank wants to put Teofimo in with WBO light welterweight champion Taylor or former WBC/WBO champ Jose Ramirez next.

They’ll likely keep Teofimo for a bit longer after he loses to one of those guys, but once he gets beaten again, Top Rank will realize they’ve got an albatross on their hands and give him the bums rush to get rid of him.

ESPN commentator Tim Bradley feels that Teofimo is still dealing with the “trauma” from his loss to Kambosos. In other words, Teofimo is still haunted by that loss, and hasn’t mentally come to terms with what happened to him that night.

“Oh, it happened! No one forgets no matter how much they try too, just like no one is buying any of their delusional excuses โš”๏ธ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜€” said George Kambosos Jr on Twitter, reacting to Teofimo Lopez’s win over Sandor Martin.

The trauma that he has suffered with the Kambosos loss, he’s still dealing with that. You have to understand, it’s the second fight back since that,” said Tim Bradley to Fight Hub TV about Teofimo Lopez after his less than impressive victory over Sandor Martin last Saturday night.
