Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and coach of undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, continues to praise himself and his son.
“People don’t like me because I say everything as it is. I say what I have to say, and I am not misleading anyone, because my words are true. And now people are beginning to believe me. I have the strongest fighter in the world. , this kid is going to be the best pound-for-pound fighter in history. I talked about it when Teofimo was 12 years old. I’ve been talking about it all my life and I’m not going to stop.
I want him to have competitors. And Teofimo wants it. There are many more things to learn. We both know about it, which is great. You should be afraid when you have nothing else to learn. Then you’re in trouble.
I always tell my son everything directly, so he and I get along well. He understands that I want him to be better. He will never be the best if he doesn’t try. I know that he will one day become the greatest fighter who ever lived, “Teofimo Lopez Sr. told Johnny’s Fight Palace YouTube.
