Matchroom will promote Lopez-Kambosos, fight coming to DAZN

Fighting

Eddie Hearn announced today that Matchroom Boxing would take over promotion of Teofimo Lopez’s defense of his lightweight world titles against IBF mandatory challenger George Kambosos Jr, after the IBF ruled that Triller had defaulted on its purse bid after yet again trying to move the date of the fight.

This latest time, Triller tried to postpone the fight from October 4 to October 16 in order to avoid going up against Monday Night Football, and had received the blessing of Teofimo Lopez to do so, but not that of George Kambosos. With the IBF putting its foot down — after Triller already accepted that they would not be promoting the fight — Triller loses its $1.2 million deposit, which deservedly goes into the fighters’ pockets.

The date and location for this matchup is yet to be announced, but with an honest-to-goodness boxing promoter at the helm, we may just get it sometime in the near future. And instead of paying $59.99 for a fight that is really shouldn’t be a PPV main event, it will now be available on DAZN.
