Former undisputed lightweight champion, and now WBO light welterweight world champion, American Teofimo Lopez, speaking to EsNews, named the two opponents he most wants to face:
– Who would you choose next if the choice depended solely on you?
– Tank Davis.
– Oh, Davis?
– Yeah. Or me versus Crawford.
Teofimo Lopez last boxed in the summer of 2023, defeating Josh Taylor by decision, becoming the junior welterweight champion. Gervonta Davis has stated that he will return with a fight in early 2024, and Crawford is committed to a rematch against Errol Spence, who he defeated by technical knockout in the 9th round.
It was also previously reported that Teofimo turned down an offer to fight Ryan Garcia in early 2024.
