Former world champion in the super lightweight (up to 63.5 kg) American Regis Prograis doubts that the former unified champion of the light category (up to 61.2 kg) Teofimo Lopez (17-1, 13 KOs) will be able to achieve great success in the heavier division .
Recall that in August, Lopez made his debut in 63.5 kg with an early victory (TKO 7) over Pedro Campa. vRINGe report on this fight.
“Well, he did what he had to do (against Campa). I think his main task was to regain his confidence, – said Prograis. — But this dude (Kampa) hit him, despite the fact that he is not even close to the top level of the division up to 63.5 kg. I know Theo well, I’ve been with him many times. So he is small compared to the big guys from 63.5 kg. I could be wrong, but I just don’t see what he can do in this category.”
Lopez needs to grow up and grow balls, according to possible rival Teofimo.
