Teofimo Lopez has vowed to eliminate Devin Haney and Gervonta Davis “in one fell swoop” if he ever gets the chance to fight them.

The undisputed lightweight champion returns to the ring on Saturday night to face obligatory IBF challenger George Kambosos Jr in New York.

A host of different reasons have kept fans from watching “The Takeover” in action, with his last fight being just over a year ago when he defeated Vasyl Lomachenko.

After being hit by COVID, former Triller fight promoters then pulled out of two more dates before Matchroom’s DAZN and Eddie Hearn stepped in to provide a platform for one of boxing’s brightest stars. .

That’s not to say the 24-year-old has been silent on the sidelines. In October, he clashed with Haney in Mikey Garcia’s shock loss to Sandor Martin and also called Davis in June for ‘dodging’ him.

And now, just days before returning from his ring, Lopez insists he wants to take on both men and has predicted explosive endings for both fights.

“I would do either or, I think those are two big fights for me,” Lopez told talkSPORT’s Michael Benson.

“Any fight I have to face with these guys will be a big fight.

“Everyone wants to see me fight these guys and I think they want to see their guys fight me.

“So I don’t see any problem with that and whatever they put in front of me, I will beat him. “

“You just have to line them up,” he added. “You can line them up completely and I’ll knock them out all at once.

“We cut this ‘Four King’s’ BS and we are pushing it to the side.”
