Teofimo Lopez Sr. Fires Shots Claims Teofimo Jr. Reigns Supreme at 140!

Teofimo Lopez Sr. recently launched scathing remarks against Devin Haney, labeling him as “fake” and asserting that his son, Teofimo Jr., holds the top spot in the 140-pound division. Lopez Sr. passionately argued that his son, WBO light welterweight champion Teofimo Jr. (19-1, 13 KOs), deserves recognition as the undisputed champion following his triumph over previously undefeated Josh Taylor.

Despite Lopez Jr.’s accomplishments, Lopez Sr. expressed frustration over his son’s dwindling visibility within the sport. Citing reasons such as inactivity, negligible social media presence, and lackluster opposition, Lopez Sr. highlighted the challenges hindering his son’s prominence compared to fighters like Ryan Garcia and Devin Haney, who actively engage in promotional activities and social media interactions.

The senior Lopez acknowledged that Teofimo Jr.’s sporadic appearances between fights have contributed to his fading presence in the eyes of fans. Despite his victory over Taylor, Lopez Sr. lamented that the win failed to elevate Teofimo Jr.’s profile, especially among American audiences unfamiliar with Taylor’s career, referencing Taylor’s prior loss to Jack Catterall and a contentious decision win in Scotland.

Asserting Teofimo Jr.’s supremacy in the division, Lopez Sr. dismissed Haney’s accomplishments, specifically critiquing Haney’s victory over Regis Prograis for the WBC light welterweight title. He contended that Haney seized the opportunity due to Prograis’ perceived decline, insinuating that Teofimo Jr. would have dispatched Prograis swiftly had they faced off.
