she was. Welcome to the minute by minute of the exciting evening of boxing taking place tonight from New York, where he will face Honduran Teofemo Lopez of Australia Jorge Camposos Jr.
Unified World Lightweight Champion, Honduran Teofimo Lopez tonight will finally present his first defense of his belts from the World Boxing Association (WBA), International Boxing Federation (IBF), World Boxing Organization (WBO) and World Boxing Council (WBC), against Australian challenger George Campos Jr. .
Lopez and Camposos have a lot in common, they both love another country that has opened doors for them.
Theophimo’s parents are Catracho by birth and Camposus of Greek descent.
The father of Teofemo Lopez, of the same name, was a boxing enthusiast. In the United States he practiced it in an amateur way, but his son at the age of six began training. In the words of his father: “I looked at a hero and trained him.”
El Gringo catracho won the 2015 National Lightweight Golden Gloves Championship. His amateur record was 150 wins and 20 losses.
However, due to his father’s immigration problems, he was not able to represent the United States at the 2016 Rio Olympics, as he did for Honduras.
At the end of that year, he made his professional debut, beating Mexican Ishwar Siqueiros.
Jorge Camposos will be looking to strike the big punch in the boxing world by trying to snatch the four belts out of the lightweight division. This will be a unique opportunity for the Australian, who in his childhood suffered from bullying due to his overweight.
“He was an overweight kid who was bullied at school. At that time I was also playing rugby and struggling to keep up with the team because my physical condition was so bad, so my dad and I decided to try boxing in the off season. Boxing caught up to me quickly, I lost 14 kilograms and worked to become a fighter,” said the boxer.
He tried unsuccessfully to be a surfing lifeguard, his life changed and his father, an electrician, was his mentor throughout his career. As a result, his rugby performance also improved, but there came a time in his teens when he had to pick a sport and switch to gloves.
Of Greek origin, Kambosos possesses an identity so distinct by his ancestors that he wears several tattoos of Spartan warriors on his back.
In addition, he has an eccentric personality, and went on to say that he is “Australia’s best athlete” and said, “I really think I should have been born in the 30s. That’s the kind of savage I am now. I bring that raw aggression to the boxing ring.” … kill or die.”
Both parents are their coach and the most notable detail between them is that they are undefeated as professionals. Teofimo has 16 fights and 12 wins by knockout, which is 75% of a win this way. Its height is 1.73 meters.
Kambosos set a record of 19 fights and 10 knockouts, 52.6% overpowering his opponents in this way. Its length is 1.76 meters.
