'No chance it goes 12!' and other forecasts

from Teofimo Lopez about the Commey fight

We talk in-depth on this week's show with one of the P4P personalities in the sport, Teofimo Lopez Jr., who puts his perfect record on the line Dec. 14 at Madison Square Garden when he challenges fellow knockout artist Richard Commey for the IBF’s 135-pound world title belt.

Teofimo, a human fireworks show in and out of the ring, delivers another scintillating interview to The Ringside Boxing Show. Enjoy!

Teofimo Lopez Sr., boxing's 5-alarm fire, ignites our podcast with a 45-minute boil over

Haters dissed Teofimo Lopez’s unanimous-decision victory over unbeaten Masayoshi Nakatani in July as a sluggish, unimpressive performance — a characterization that inflames his trainer/father, Teofimo Sr., into a full boil.

The volatile patriarch joins us on this week’s Ringside Boxing Show for an explosive conversation that unapologetically takes on Teofimo’s former nutritionist, sister, mother, Vasilly Lomachenko, Richard Commey, Bob Arum, ESPN analysts Timothy Bradley and Andre Ward, judges at the 2016 Olympics, and “90 percent of boxing fans who don’t know sh** about boxing.”

Lessons were learned against Nakatani, though, and Teofimo Sr. predicts the total obliteration of Commey, who defends his IBF lightweight title against Teo Jr. on Dec. 14 at Madison Square Garden.

And that, he says, will only be a preview of what the undefeated lightweight will do next year to the legend and legacy of Lomachenko, considered by many to be the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world.

Get out your fire extinguishers, Ringside Nation — Teofimo Sr. is en fuego.

This week’s featured guest on The Ringside Boxing Show is arguably the most-electrifying young boxer in the sport, Teofimo Lopez Jr., whose 12-0 record includes 10 KOs, most of them highlight reel knockouts.

In addition to speed, balance, otherworldly punching power, this 21-year-old meteorite also has the kind of love-him-or-hate-him charisma we haven’t seen since the days of Prince Naseem Hamed, Macho Camacho, Jorge Paez, and Muhammad Ali: Backflips in the ring … home run trots … crazy dances … all of which drives his New York fans into a frenzy.

His father, Teofimo Sr., has his own unique personality, with no fear of controversy, including the very strong opinion that Vasyl Lomachenko wants no part of his son at 135 pounds.

We interview both son and father on this edition, and it’s a wild and interesting ride.
