Yeah tbh I don’t see that as a good match for the tank I don’t know who can beat Lopez now; maybe Lomachenko in a rematch but it seems like a tall order I wouldn’t bet on it
Floyd knows Teo will go up to 140 soon So he’s just stalling Let’s let the tank fight a bum after that while Teo goes up and then Floyd says sorry we want the fight but he’s up
