Boxinginsider.com: “You broke his jaw and he’s been talking a lot ever since. He’s asking for a rematch with (Floyd) Mayweather. Do you think that’s…”

Josesito Lopez: “(Laughs) This guys needs to wake up already man! Maybe, avenge his losses and if he can get to Mayweather, then he can get to Mayweather but he needs to get trough me and (Marcos) Maidana first!”
