Weeks after Teofimo Lopez’s emphatic win over Vasyl Lomachenko, Lopez had foot surgery to repair his right foot. While Lomachenko is calling for a rematch, it would still be another huge fight for both boxers to run it back.
However, Lopez has also hinted at moving up in weight and grabbing the 140-pound gold in an attempt to become a multi-division champion. Lopez could also look at defending his IBF gold against mandatory challenger George Kambosos Jr. who edged past Lee Selby this past weekend.
“The Takeover” is well a truly here, and nothing but greatness on Teofimo Lopez’s mind moving forward.
