Lopez-Kambosos postponed after champ tests positive for COVID-19

Among the busiest boxing Saturdays in current memory got a little less hectic when undeniable light-weight champ Teofimo Lopez evaluated favorable Tuesday for COVID-19.

As an outcome, his battle with compulsory opposition George Kambosos and the whole card has actually been held off up until Aug. 14. It will be at a place to be figured out. Saturday’s card had actually been arranged for Miami.

“Teofimo Lopez has symptomatic COVID-19, which was confirmed this morning after testing,” Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh stated in a declaration. “The entire Triller Fight Club card, including the main event, is being rescheduled for Aug. 14. We send our best to Teofimo Lopez and his family and hope they get better soon. We can’t wait to see this epic battle on Aug. 14.”

Triller Battle Club won the right to promote the Lopez-Kambosos battle at a handbag quote. It bid a massive $6.2 million, blowing away quotes by Lopez promoter Leading Rank ($2.3 million) and Matchroom Sport ($3.5 million). It wished to utilize Lopez as a focal point of its desire to move from promoting celeb boxing to genuine battles.

Lopez beat Vasiliy Lomachenko in Las Vegas in October to end up being the undeniable champ and make him among the sport’s greatest stars.
