Sometimes are fights are rescheduled once or twice due to contract disputes, travel issues or unforeseen injuries. However, it is extremely rare for a fight to be rescheduled nine times within the span of six months. Unfortunately, that is exactly what has happened within Teofimo Lopez-George Kambosos. ESPN has reported that the 135-pound title fight has been rescheduled for the ninth time. This time around, the fight is expected to be held on November 27 at Madison Square Garden. DAZN has secured streaming rights for the fight.
The fight was originally scheduled to take place on May 29 before it was moved back to early June 5. From there, the fight was pushed back two weeks to avoid clashing with Logan Paul-Floyd Mayweather Jr. However, the fight was pushed back again because Lopez tested positive for COVID-19. Since then, the fight has been delayed a handful of times due to disputes over pay, location and streaming rights.
Given the unpredictable nature of this fight, it is not certain that it will take place on November 27. With that said, both fighters seem intent of making this happen once and for all.
ITS ABOUT DAMN TIME!!!
