Teofimo Lopez Sr.: “Other fighters only use our names for the hype”


Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and coach of undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, said other boxers are trying to get attention by mentioning their family.

“As for the people who say that my son is avoiding someone or something. None of these guys fought with the top 10 fighters. We did it all the time. Lomachenko made us do it all the time, that’s what we got to it so why should we give these guys a chance? They only use our names for the hype.

We are showing larger numbers than all of them. On the ESPN platform alone, we have collected five million views. Nobody has seen such figures. All these words about pay-per-view stars … Being in PPV doesn’t make you a PPV star. You become a PPV star when you bring numbers. I’m happy with what we’ve already done in 16 fights. This achievement will never be surpassed in boxing. It will forever remain in history, “said Teofimo Lopez Sr. in an interview with the YouTube channel World Combat Sports.

We will remind, Lopez Sr. also said that he and his son are not interested in fights with Devin Haney and Jervonta Davis.
