The highly anticipated lightweight title bout between Teofimo Lopez and George Kambosos Jr. has been cancelled according to Triller CEO Ryan Kavanagh. Kavanagh, speaking to The Athletic, broke the news that champion Teofimo Lopez has tested positive for COVID-19 and is presenting symptoms. Lopez suffers from asthma and COVID could present a larger problem for someone with the affliction.
The fight is tentatively rescheduled for August 14 adding to an already crowded month of boxing. Lopez-Kambosos is a significant investment for Triller who paid $6 million for the fight.
We wish Teofimo Lopez the best in his fight against COVID-19 and hope for a speedy return to the ring.
