Teofimo Lopez currently has no solid plans for his next fight, but is open to working with most promoters when it comes to making it happen.
In his third fight at super-lightweight, Lopez boxed sensationally to hand previously undisputed Josh Taylor his first loss, taking the WBO belt in the process.
He briefly entered retirement, later confirming he intended to fight on and was elevated to Super Champion by the sanctioning body, giving him some more leeway with mandatory defences.
Lopez wants mega fights for mega money, but told Boxing Scene that there was nothing on the horizon just yet.
“We don’t have no plans right now.”
“We want to weigh our options. We couldn’t weigh our options when I became undisputed the first time. So I just want to weigh my options this time.”
The Brooklyn native has been rumoured for a February return, even linked with a Super Bowl weekend fight against Ryan Garcia at Las Vegas’ latest venue, the Sphere.
Despite previously fighting on Top Rank shows, he says he’s open to working with everybody – that is, except one man and broadcaster.
“I’m talking to everybody… No, I don’t deal with Matchroom or those kind of guys. Nor DAZN. I’m my own promoter.”
Lopez has had an issue with Matchroom’s Eddie Hearn dating back to his unified lightweight title defence against George Kambosos Jr. After a mess with Triller, the British promoter won the purse bid and broadcast the fight on DAZN.
