The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez announced that he wants to arrange an exhibition duel with the legendary Floyd Mayweather.
“Yes, I really want to have an exhibition fight with Mayweather. Everything I say is not bullshit, I’m being honest. I don’t see why not do it. I was asked which celebrity I want to fight with, and I answered What about Floyd. In boxing, Mayweather is a celebrity, this is an important distinction. He is no longer a boxer, but a celeba, so he collects checks and cashes them. So why not?
I respect you champion. I first met you when I was eight. You signed a postcard for me and said, “May the Lord bless you.” I think that was the day you blessed me. I appreciate you, but I’m just doing my job, champion. I have no disrespect for you. I adore you, and there are many guys who have done the same and continue to do it, “said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with the YouTube channel SNOWQUEENLA.
Recall that Lopez also reacted to the failure of the fight between Anthony Joshua – Tyson Fury.
