He debuted in the sport in 2016 and ever since then he had a powerful urge to bag the lightweight straps. That said, he made his intentions clear from the beginning and moved ahead with constant wins.

Lopez vanquished every opponent of his way and certainly showed his class to one and all. In 2020, he entered a gigantic showdown against the Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko and gave his best hit to become the unified lightweight kingpin.

This fight proved to be a career-defining bout for the young Teofimo Lopez. Also, this contest made him a household name in the sport, thus helping Lopez expand his fanbase. However, the 23-year-old isn’t quite satisfied with his run because he’s hungry for more and is looking to fetch a long pathway in the game.

Will Teofimo Lopez go down as the best lightweight boxer of all time?

Lopez is considerably young, but he’s enjoyed some exemplary success in the sport. He still has a long roadway to trace and for that he’ll have to touch gloves with the best fighters of his division.
