Teofimo Lopez fought twice in 2022, and the critics were vocal.
His most recent outing against Sandor Martin saw him win a split decision against Sandor Martin, but the power the fans fell in love with isn't showing its head, yet at 140 lbs.
Teofimo’s father, Teofimo Lopez Sr., best known as Junior Lopez, is eager to face the man most consider the #1 fighter in the division, Regis Prograis.
“We want him,” said Junior Lopez to ESNEWS. “We want him in April. We coming after his ass.”
Prograis recently defeated Jose Zepeda for the vacant WBC 140 lbs world title, after Josh Taylor vacated the title he had won from Jose Ramirez the year prior.
“My son is easy prey for Regis. So come and get it. We gonna beat the [expletive] out of him every round.”
