Small thing.. but 9:55 into the Hot Boxin' podcast that Teofimo Lopez was on the other day.. Teo says "we threw out the contract, just past, early this week with Australia, with my mandatory. However if things go south, the whole thing next is Devin Haney"

"Threw out" in the we threw out/sent out a contract to them.

Small thing but could be sign that Teo VS George Kambosos could be close
Interesting!

I like the artwork too.
It's not bad. I didn't noitce the stunch roo in the background at first hahaha.
If it gets signed I hope it happens in Aus. They'll no doubt jack the prices right up so I doubt I'd be ble to get proper ring side but for an undisputed title fight in Aus, I'd be willing to fork out say $500 for a ticket t most.


I'm still working my way through the podcast. Seems Teo is more interested in Haney but is giving Kambosos his chance as the mandatory.

Went on-line to see what the price structure is for Zerafa-Mundine, in Bendigo and it looks like it could already be sold out?

It says on Ticketek 'Allocation Already Exhausted.'

Surely not?

Quinlan VS Caparello has the potential to be a good fight but i think your right, Quinlan doesn’t have much left in the tank these days

Geez! Just looked, Quinlan has lost 5 in a row going back almost 3 years ago when Hooper knocked him out. He’s definitely past it
Quinlan is out.

Caparello is now fighting Faris Chevalier who hasn't fought for about 5 years.

This card absolutely sucks!

It's these sorts of 'fights' that drag Australia down internationally, there are the few top ranked Aussies of quality supporting boxing here while the leaches latch onto the resulting interest to make a quick dollar.

George Kambosos is Teofimo Lopez' IBF mandatory and with Lopez keen to keep all his belts the fight looks like happening.

But their respective promoters haven't been able to come to agreement so a virtual purse bid has been called for February 18th.

Working date for the fight seems to be June 12th.

My guess is that Team Kambosos are pushing for the fight down under and for Team Lopez the purse isn't big enough to deal with the quarantine.

A third Andrew Maloney vs Joshua Franco fight is in the making following the farce No Contest in their most recent fight. The likely date is May and it might even be here in Australia. Twin brother Jason is odds on to be on the undercard.

Tim Tszyu plan to challenge Patrick Teixeira for Teixeira's WBO belt have gone down the drain after Costano defeated Teixeira at the weekend.

I don't know that he was mandatory mate?

Thing it was just a fight they were working towards.

Nah Tim was mandatory to Teixeira.
Hence why he was being targeted.

.


With Charlo holding the other belts, there was also probably an element of it being the easiest route to a title in the division.
