The undisputed lightweight champion of the world Teofimo Lopez, who the day before withdrew from the fight against George Kambossos due to a positive test for COVID-19, released a statement on this matter.

“You heard the news that I had to withdraw from the fight because of the coronavirus. If you are a champion, then it means that you have to do difficult things. There are no exceptions. I decided to keep my colleagues safe.

I am devastated for disappointing many people. I know what sacrifices we all made to get here. I believe I am doing the right thing. I don’t want to infect anyone.

Sport has an impact. I decided to use my influence to set a good example. The most powerful thing I can do is protect those I love. And I love boxing, all the athletes, fans, coaches, promoters and my sponsors, “Teofimo Lopez wrote on his Instagram page.
