Teofimo Lopez's Crowns Himself King of 140 Throne

Teofimo Lopez has boldly crowned himself as the king of the 140-lb division, but reality and fans beg to differ.

After a victory over Josh Taylor, Lopez’s stock took a hit with a loss to George Kambosos Jr. in 2021. Despite Top Rank’s continued support, questions linger about his future matchups.

Lopez’s self-perception clashes with fan opinion. Many see Subriel Matias as the true #1, with Devin Haney at #2. Teofimo sits at #3, and concerns rise about a potential slip if his form falters.

The desire for fights with Haney and Crawford sounds good, but realism is in short supply. Negotiating these bouts may prove challenging given Lopez’s inflated self-view.

In his self-proclaimed list, Lopez ranks himself at #1, Haney at #2, Matias at #3, Rolando Romero at #4, Ismael Barroso at #5, and Ryan Garcia at #6. He stresses the need to earn the rank, a sentiment that may come back to haunt him.

As the boxing community watches closely, Lopez’s upcoming bout against #11 WBO Jamaine Ortiz could be crucial. Can he regain his former glory, or is he destined for a downward slide?
