Teofimo Lopez Ousted from Ring Magazine's P4P Top Ten After Controversial Win"

In the aftermath of his contentious victory over Jamaine Ortiz for the WBO light welterweight title, Teofimo Lopez finds himself ousted from Ring Magazine’s pound-for-pound top ten rankings. The bout, which unfolded last Thursday at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Las Vegas, raised eyebrows not for its intensity but for the judges’ perplexing scoring.

Challenger Jamaine Ortiz (17-2-1, 8 KOs) showcased a boxing clinic, exposing Teofimo’s struggles in cutting off the ring. Ortiz out-landed him and dominated exchanges, leaving fans perplexed when the judges rendered their scores—117-111, 115-113, and 115-113—all in favor of Teofimo. Social media erupted in disagreement, with the consensus being that Ortiz had clearly outperformed the WBO champion.

The controversial decision has now cost Teofimo Lopez his spot in Ring Magazine’s prestigious pound-for-pound top ten. The aftermath on social media suggested that this was not just a case of a debatable win; instead, it fueled the perception of Teofimo benefiting from popularity rather than in-ring merit.

As Teofimo faces the consequences of a contentious victory, the boxing world awaits how this shake-up in the rankings will impact his future matchups and the credibility of the pound-for-pound list.
