Teofimo Lopez Throws Shade at Rolly Romero, Eyes Unified Title in Second Division

In a recent social media post, WBO super-lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez showcased his dominance in a sparring session against fellow 140lb champion Rolly Romero. The clip reignited their rivalry, with Lopez confidently stating he’d handle Romero again in a professional bout.

Having conquered the division’s poster boy, Josh Taylor, last year, Lopez is set to defend his title against Jamaine Ortiz on Super Bowl weekend. If successful, he eyes a unification showdown against Subriel Matias, Devin Haney, or Romero. However, a potential move to 147lbs for a clash with Terence Crawford looms if negotiations materialize.

Romero, recently linked to a Ryan Garcia bout, saw the fight fall through due to pricing disputes. Unfazed, Lopez posted a 2017 sparring video almost dropping Romero and issued a warning to Oscar De La Hoya, Garcia’s promoter. The message: disrespect the legend, and face the consequences.

While Lopez gears up for his upcoming defense, Romero eyes future matchups against Isaac ‘Pitbull’ Cruz or a mandatory rematch with Ismael Barroso. Despite the Garcia debacle, Romero remains focused on his journey in the super-lightweight division.

The boxing world anticipates potential clashes and unifications, with Lopez seeking to add more titles to his collection and Romero eager to make his mark. As the countdown to Super Bowl weekend begins, fans are left speculating on the outcomes of these promising matchups.
