Like most of the country, Teofimo Lopez has a lot of free time on his hands with President Donald Trump’s “Stay at Home” guidelines they are implemented through the entire month of April.
The 22-year-old IBF lightweight champion recently took to Reddit.com for a Question & Answer session to give fans a peek into his personal life.
One fan asked Lopez who he thinks is the best fighter in his division.
“Lomachenko is top, why do you think I'm fighting the dude? They put Gervonta Davis on there, he can't even make 135. Devin Haney is too scared to fight an actual opponent, fakes an injury or gets surgery so he doesn't have to fight his mandatory. A bunch of bitches in this sport now, lot of p-ssies in this sport now. Davis can't even knock out an old Gamboa. I could talk a lot of sh-t,” Lopez wrote.
Another fan asked how he though a fight beaten IBF/WBA bantamweight champion Naoya Inoue and former lineal super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux would play out. Rigondeaux moved downwards to bantamweight in his last fight and plans on continuing to campaign at 118 pounds.
“Inoue, he would win. I love Rigondeaux, I sparred with him when I was 16, he taught me a few things in the ring. But he's not in his prime, not in his peak anymore. Inoue is just killing the game, stronger, faster, smarter. He brings the fight and I feel like he might end up stopping him,” opined Lopez.
