Teofimo Lopez, the WBO champion in the lightweight division (up to 63.5 kg), has responded to Bill Haney's statement with regards to being ready for a title unification bout against him:
"Heiny is now on the radar; it's about damn time. One fight at a time, baby. One fight at a time. Damn, it's great to be back," wrote Lopez.
Earlier, Teofimo Lopez issued a challenge to Terence Crawford. Lopez's next fight is scheduled for February 8th in Las Vegas against Jamaine Ortiz.
