Lopez was all set to defend his multiple lightweight straps against George Kambosos Jr. on June 19th. However, he succumbed to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and that’s why his fight with Kambosos Jr. got pushed ahead. Hence, he’s currently paying attention to his health and overall wellbeing.

As soon as Lopez put this photo on Twitter, many boxing fans congratulated him and wished good health for the baby and his wife.

‘The Takeover’ would like to welcome his child into this world by scoring a sensational win against the Australian boxer on August 14th. He will have a massive responsibility on his shoulders this time as he will want to prove that his win over ‘The Matrix’ wasn’t a fluke. Therefore, the lightweight star will certainly look to leave it all in the ring.

Teofimo Lopez is waiting to shock the world again

In his last fight, the young gun went all guns blazing against the stout lightweight Vasyl Lomachenko. Being an underdog, Lopez didn’t really have significant support from fans and fighters around the world. However, he shook everyone with his performance in that fight, as he eventually claimed a gratifying win.
