Teofimo: We want all the belts

“I was at 135 pounds for nine years. It was killing my body, since I was a teenage kid, man. We want Josh Taylor. We want these guys. We want {Regis} Prograis. We want {Jose} Zepeda. We want all the belts. We want to become two-time undisputed champion,” said former lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez after winning his junior welterweight debut by TKO over Pedro Campa on Saturday evening in front of a sold-out crowd of 3,553 at Resorts World Las Vegas.

“If Josh Taylor is too busy with his wedding and there’s nobody else around because the WBA belt is taken and the WBC is going to be fought with Zepeda and Prograis, then so fuc*ng be it,” Lopez added.

There was another interested observer ringside, Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Ryan Garcia. Lopez wants the biggest challenges and has no issue with a Garcia fight.

  • Lopez will get handled by Taylor, Prograis and Zepeda, oh and Ramirez but he will end Superhype so Oscar will not make this fight they will talk but not walk lol

  • Lopez should fight Ryan garcia, and Ryan Garcia should fight Lopez. Garcia hasn’t fought anybody yet but he can’t make 135 lb anymore and should stay at 140 lb. Lopez will need to wait his turn in a crowded Junior welterweight division where he has done absolutely nothing, and all of the big names deserve to fight for belts. Lopez does not deserve to fight for belts at this weight yet. He would make a lot more money fighting Garcia and a win over the mouthy mongoloid chicano would likely give him bargaining power for world title shots. However, he wouldn’t have the luxury of winning all four belts by beating a weight drained Josh Taylor and will now have to fight killers like the winner of Prograis/Chon among others if he really wants to be undisputed. I don’t think he can do it personally. I’m not even sure if he gets past Ryan Garcia at this point.

  • He will probably need to be better than he was last night, to beat the top guys in the division

  • At 140, I’d like to see Prograis and Lopez have it out. Stylistically, I think this would be the best fan’s fight for Lopez. Garcia is a big money right, but I don’t think Oscar is willing to do it right now. Taylor is too much in more than one way and Zepeda is is about the same.

  • I didn’t see in this fight the explosiveness of Lopez that I used to see when he was at 135 fighting 135 guys. One more fight against a better opponent could help to measure his chances against the top guys at 140, if his power has diminished, the same way would be his chances to succeed

  • Suddenly Lopez is on top again by beating a second tier fighter? And not very convincing until the 7th round. Someone needs to silence this guy once and for all.

  • Why mention Ryan Garcia when it’s known he’s scared of big fights? He mentioned Manny, Haney, and Tank. None of those fights have happened and he’s the common denominator. Lopez would kill Garcia. I’m not the biggest Lopez fan but I respect that he called out everyone and stated his intentions to become undisputed.

  • Come on Teo have your dad brush your hair before your flights and the takeover will be complete.

  • To me Lopez is too small in my opinion and will lose if he fights Garcia but has a chance against Zepeda. The fact he’s moving up in weight is interesting for the division.

  • Lopez is so annoying will all his talking- at 140 Lopez and Ryan Garcia will have massive problems-
