What has Happened So Far?
Teófimo López defeated WBA (Super), WBO, and The Ring champion Vasyl Lomachenko to cause an upset and continue his unbeaten record. López was already holding IBF Lightweight Championship before that fight and hence united four titles. López denied Lomachenko’s request for a rematch saying that he did not like the behavior of Lomachenko’s camp.
George Kambosos became the mandatory challenger for the IBF Lightweight title by defeating Lee Shelby by a split decision. Triller won the purse bid for the fight between López and Kambosos Jr. at $6 million. The fight was first announced for June 5, 2021, but was then moved to June 19.
It was rescheduled once again when López tested positive for COVID-19 just days before the fight. August 14 was announced as the new date at Loan Depot Park. But with Miami Marlins having a MLB match on the same date, Triller started to look for another venue.
Triller tried to host the fight in Sydney, Australia(Kambosos’ home country) on October 17. However, López threatened that he would rather relinquish the IBF title than undergo Australia’s mandatory Quarantine of 14 days. IBF then ordered Triller to find another venue. Triller tries to stage the bout in Saudi Arabia or UAE, but ultimately announced that it will take place in New York.
