George Kambosos resists signing off on new Oct. 16 fight date change to face Teofimo Lopez 1

Kambosos is keeping firm right now.

George Kambosos isn’t exactly enthused to move once again his proposed fight date for his IBF mandatory title fight against Teofimo Lopez — now being targeted for Oct. 16 by Triller, instead of Oct. 4.

And with Kambosos holding firm for now on the Oct. 4 date, Lopez took to social media to suggest Kambosos wants out of the fight.

“Yooo! This hoe George Kambosos don’t want to sign the contract for the new date,” Lopez wrote on Twitter. “All that talk and he don’t want to fight now. Man someone get this boy so I can finish what he thinks he started! OCTOBER 16TH sign the dotted line. Your biggest payday and you chicken out.”
Kambosos would soon reply in kind, saying he’s ready to rumble with Lopez anytime, anyplace, and anywhere — even if that means meeting up for a street fight (just apparently not on Oct. 16, though).

“Delusional weight drained kid” Kambosos replied. “Why wait for Oct. 16, we have a signed date for Oct. 4. Like I told you at the presser, I’ll do it right now. So if you want just meet me outside of MSG. Just me and you and let’s see who’s a real dog. Sorry to break it to you but no one’s scared of you.”
At this point, there’s plenty of questions as to whether or not this on again off again fight will take place at all.

Still, I suppose it could just be how much Triller is willing to pay to satisfy Kambosos for the fight date change, which has already been rumoured to have lost big money for the company.
