His journey is one of unparalleled success, marked by numerous world championships across two weight classes, showcasing his extraordinary skills and resilience within the squared circle.

López’s meteoric rise began with his impressive reign as the unified World Boxing Association (WBA) (Super version), International Boxing Federation (IBF), WBO, and Ring lightweight champion from 2019 to 2021.

Beyond the titles, López’s versatility shines through as he proudly holds the lineal championship in both the lightweight and light welterweight divisions, solidifying his status as a true boxing maestro.

Hailing from Honduran immigrants, López’s story is intertwined with the rich tapestry of his family’s journey. Born in Brooklyn, New York, his father, Teofimo López Sr., became his guiding force, introducing him to the sweet science at the tender age of 6. The family’s eventual move to Florida marked the beginning of López’s dedicated training regimen.
