Teofimo Lopez is one of the brightest talents of boxing who currently reigns as the unified lightweight world champion. As a child, his boxing journey began under the supervision of his father Teofimo Lopez Sr., who still continues to play a vital role in his professional career. Since the beginning, Teo showcased sensational skills and even as an amateur attracted a lot of attention through his dominant rise. Eventually in 2016, Lopez turned pro and has continued his domination within the professional ranks as well. After quickly compiling a record of 14-0, his first major challenge came in the form of then IBF lightweight champion Richard Commey. Contrary to most expectations, Lopez made a quick work of the champion and won the fight with a second-round TKO.
Subsequent to this win, he faced the highly-regarded unified WBA (Super), WBO, and The Ring champion, Vasyl Lomachenko. Defying the odds, Teofimo pulled-off an upset victory and in just 16th professional fight, he became the unified lightweight world champion. Due to his these achievements, Lopez is highly admired by the boxing critics and many publications have ranked him among the best active boxers in the world. Now moving away from his boxing career, Teofimo Lopez is married to former air hostess Cynthia. The two med on a Delta Airlines flight and began dating shortly after.
