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.
