Teofimo Lopez- Taking over the Money Game

Lopez’s fight against George Kambosos Jr. on June 19 at the Triller Fight Club will reportedly get him $6.02 million. Hence, it would be a massive addition to his net worth. This windfall can see him become one of the richest boxers of the time. However, Gossip Gist has already cited Teofimo Lopez’s net worth to be $2.5 million.

According to reports, Teofimo Lopez earned a lucrative $1.25 million from the fight against Lomachenko, which saw him become the unified 135 lbs champion.

Meanwhile, boxing has been the primary source of income for Lopez, as he is associated with Bob Arum’s Top Rank. However, he can opt for free agency soon. As the door to sponsorship remains open, Lopez can soon become a multi-millionaire pugilist.

Apart from his boxing skills, Lopez’s headlining abilities have also thrilled the promoters and matchmakers. He is already a PPV star and with more wins on board, he can rightly fall under the similar bracket to cash-cow boxers like Floyd Mayweather or Canelo Alvarez in the coming years.
