Former lightweight absolute Teofimo Lopez (17-1, 13 KOs), who made a successful debut in the first welterweight category today, announced the date of the next fight – this is mid-December, the time when most boxers try to fight before Christmas to plunge with peace of mind on holidays.
The American stated after a confident but expected victory over Pedro Campa that he “needs to work a little on some things.” He also hopes that by next week he will be in the rating up to 63.5 kg “as a mandatory contender for the fight with Josh Taylor.”
“I will fight again December 10. Maybe at Madison Square Garden or maybe at the O2 Arena against Taylor. Yes, I want to fight for titles,” he said.

“Absolutely,” Teofimo said when
Fighthype asked him if he would like to go up against Ryan Garcia. “However, what will he give, Ryan, besides fans? I understand that there will be a lot of money, but I do not consider this my main goal. Money will always take care of itself. I don’t worry about it. I know where I’m going.”
