Report from vRINGe: Lopez-Martin: Angels and Demons

Devin Haney: “That nigga on his ass :)”.

“Kambosos destroyed Theo … he will never be the same.”

Ryan Garcia: “Theo is losing, in my opinion.”

“Sandor Martin won if they didn’t decide to rob him.”

“Whether you think the fight is close or not, a bad decision is a bad decision. How is it that Theo won 97-93? The last score was disgusting.”

  • “Food for the dog” Bradley criticized Teofimo Lopez

Gervonta Davis: “That’s how Top Rank makes you look… like you’re getting fired. They’re all trash.”

Regis Prograis: “Jokes aside. I hope Theo is okay. Boxing is a difficult and lonely sport and it can be mentally taxing. I think he probably needs some changes in his personal life.”

George Kambosos: “Oh, it happened! Nobody forgets, no matter how hard they try. It’s just that nobody falls for any of those crazy excuses.” [и прикрепил фотографию окровавленного Теофимо из своего поединка]

“Maybe Theo’s back was broken and that’s why he didn’t perform well? It must have been his spine. Congrats on your win champ, you too Senior. You did a hell of a job!!”

Teddy Atlas: “Lopez is physically excellent, but frankly, he hasn’t been taught the things he’s supposed to show.”

“If Martin needs to get Lopez to do what he wants, this is it. Expect one hit all night.”

“Lopez should change his nickname from ‘The Coup’ to possibly ‘The End’.

“Do you hear that sound in the background? It’s more fans leaving the sport because of unfair referees.”

“Even if you think Lopez won, was it by as much margin as the referee?”

“And remember, if it was unfair to Martin, it wasn’t just the judges. The referee didn’t count the second knockdown.”

“How do you spell ‘corrupt’? 12 letters down – boxing.”
