Teofimo Lopez vs George Kambosos (DAZN) (BIG FIGHT)

November 27th

Teofimo Lopez is the unified champion at 135 pounds and is very highly regarded after being the top pound for pound fighter in the world in 2020.  His mandatory defense against George Kambosos was originally won in a purse bid by Triller, but the upstart boxing promotion couldn’t figure out the fight after many starts and stops. Teofimo has re upped with his long term promoter Top Rank/ESPN.  But this fight fell to the second highest bidder on the purse bid which was Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom so DAZN and Matchroom will promote this fight with Teofimo on November 27th.
