Teofimo Lopez Declared As A WBO Super Champion At 140

Teofimo Lopez is now the WBO super champion at junior welterweight, giving the boxer more options moving forward.

Such a move would allow Lopez to become a mandatory at any weight class if he decided to move up or down. Not only that, but the WBO champion will also have the benefit of having an extended period of time to face any mandatory that may come his way. The news is significant in light of Lopez’s win over Josh Taylor, as he won the WBO belt. Thereafter, Lopez expressed his desire to secure nine-figure paydays that would put him in the biggest fights. So the status of being a super champion would do that.

A move up to 147 could also follow if Terence Crawford’s belts become vacated. Meanwhile, bigger fights at 140 could follow as a possible unification against the winner of Regis Prograis and Devin Haney may play out. So, moving forward, Lopez has plenty of options to consider.
