I sat down yesterday with unified lightweight champion Teófimo López (16 - 0, 12 KOs) before he faces off against George Kambosos Jr. (19 - 0, 10 KOs) this Saturday on Triller Fight Club.
The whole interview is almost 20 minutes, but Teó dropped a little hint that there was a surprise guest showing up at the event, so I had my producer cut this little social teaser that I then attached to what I think is an A+ blog title.
Unlike last weekend's TikTok abomination (and other Triller events in the past), this Saturday's event is looking to mix a ton of real boxing with what my kids might consider real artists and musicians, and I was happy to hear that 'Jenny From The Block' is scheduled to make what used to be a surprise appearance.
Snoop Dogg and Jim Lampley will be ringside along with Mario Lopez, who is now officially the third Lopez involved with Saturday's event along with Teó and (most importantly) Jennifer.
Will post the rest of the interview closer to the weekend and break down the card a bit… Until then…
Take a report.
