Who is Teofimo Lopez?
At 25-years-old, Lopez is seven years Taylor's junior and is the former unified lightweight champion. The American has suffered defeat just once in 19 career fights, that loss coming against Sandor Martin – at Madison Square Garden – by split decision in December.
Lopez's biggest victory was in October 2020 when he defeated Vasyl Lomachenko by unanimous decision.He comes from Brooklyn so will have a big New York City support behind him.
