The Ferocious Spartan from Sydney has done the unimaginable beating the unbeaten unified champion Teofimo Lopez via decision, 115-11, 115-113, 113-114.

George Kambosos Jr. was a complete outsider even receiving threats from the crowd before the match went live.

In a stadium completely in favour of Lopez, a much bigger fighter with no previous losses and the heaviest knock-out win record in his category, Kambosos Jr. has prevailed.

Kambosos Jr., who had promised to stand his ground knocked down Lopez in the first round; Lopez made a comeback in the tenth but Kambosos Jr. dominated the last two rounds.

The Greek Australian has pulled one of boxing’s great recent upsets, becoming the IBF, WBO, WBA and The Ring lightweight world champion.

In a recent one-on-one with Neos Kosmos, the world champion talked family, fame and his million dollar fight against Teofimo Lopez.

“I’m very proud of my Greek heritage and I’m very proud of where I live here in Australia. I take both Greek and Australian flags with me. Not only am I fighting for myself, my family and the people around me, but I am ultimately fighting for both countries.

“I want the George Kambosos name to have honour. We talked about the passing of my grandfather who was George Kambosos as well. I go visit him at the cemetery and I look at all these different gravestones and I don’t know who’s who. I know that when people will pass my grandfather and they see ‘George Kambosos’, they’re going to know straight away that that must be the grandfather of the undisputed champion, he must be related to George Kabosos the fighter. And that’s legacy there,” he said.

“Money comes and goes. The bright lights come and go, the media, the interviews will come and go but the name and what you do in your life, that lasts forever.”
