Australian lightweight contender (up to 61.2 kg) George Kambosos categorically responded to the numerous and often disrespectful statements of Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and coach of his rival and division leader, American Teofimo Lopez.
Journalist: “What could you say to Lopez’s father, who, like his son, was very confident in himself on the eve of your fight?”
Kambosos: “Yes, I have something for him … fuck you! I don’t give a shit about his father. His father is nobody. He has not fought a single battle in his life. So I don’t give a fuck what he says.
He said something at the press conference, but I told him that he was a clown and that it all sounds just awful. The whole world looks at how he dishonors himself. If he wants to have fun – my father is here, and they could sort things out. “
