According to Teofimo Lopez, at the moment he has a large choice among potential rivals, between arenas where he could perform, and even countries in which he could play. His father Teofimo Lopez Sr. believes that his son could even hold a duel in Australia, because now it is allowed to hold sports events with spectators there. However, if Teofimo is going to go there, he will need to win the fight very confidently.
Lopez Sr. cited Manny Pacquiao as an example. When the Filipino defended his welterweight title against Jeff Horn, in a relatively equal, almost drawn match, the judges helped the Australian a little and a couple of extra points already allowed him to win by unanimous decision.
“For each country we will have different rivals, but in Australia, your opponent needs to be knocked out, because the judges can pull the same shit as with Manny Pacquiao. However, in all his fights, Teofimo wins almost every round, so it doesn’t matter. “
“Any fight they give him will be easy. We just need to keep doing what we did. We are the best in this. “
