Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and trainer of the undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, is sure that the management of the Top Rank promotion company was not pleased with his son’s victory over Vasily Lomachenko.
“We know what defeat is, so we don’t leave the fate of the fight in the hands of the judges. We tried to beat Lomachenko so hard that they wouldn’t rob us. And we did it that evening.
Top Rank was not happy about this. I don’t think they were happy. If they were happy, they would come to the press conference. Nobody showed up there. There was no one. This is disrespectful. Only the media came to the press conference, but no Top Rank was present. And it’s like an insult to my son, who just became the youngest undisputed world champion on this fucking planet. They have to adore this fucking awesome guy. We made a lot of money for this company, this is fucking ridiculous.
The new Manny Pacquiao was born that evening. I told everyone about it. They fucking don’t want to promote Teofimo and make him a star. I don’t understand why, “Teofimo Lopez Sr. said in an interview with YouTube channel Johnny’s Fight Palace.
