Via Dan Ambrose: Teofimo Lopez has some great picks for his next game at 140 after sending him in the seventh round last Saturday night in Las Vegas.
The interesting thing is that Teofimo doesn’t care about fighting Arnold Barboza in what could be a big fight if it happens.
Barboza was in the ring last Saturday night, and the ESPN team made sure boxing fans at home got a chance to see him by placing their cameras on him.
Teofimo’s picks for his next fight:
- Regis Prograis
- Jose Zepeda
- Arnold Barboza
- Jose Ramirez
- Ryan Garcia
“I think Teofimo’s ability to increase score at 140 is huge. There are a lot of talented guys out there. He wants all of them,” Chris Algieri told First Class Boxing.
“Boys like it [Josh] Taylor who actually gave up some belts, but it was a fight he [Teofimo] been called for a while. Do you have an indoor fighter like [Arnold] Barboza, an invincible is about to appear.
“Sitting in the ring and calling on Teofimo in many fights. You’ve got a winner [Jose] Zepeda and [Regis] The show, it’s a great match in a way.
“There are so many great battles for Teofimo at this point.

“Initially, I was a bit worried about the size. Pedro Campa looks huge for the weight class. We knew it was coming, and Teofimo showed up. He weighed 138 lbs at weight.
is tii” He doesn’t look like he’s gained much weight. Even in the beginning, very early on, with the big hits he was landing where we usually see him knocking down light people, Campa went through them.
“But when Teofimo found his rhythm, found his timing and his flow, he was completely unstoppable and really had a great ending. When Teofimo is at his best and has his time and has the ability to defend against counterattacks.
“It’s a thing of beauty. He did some of the stuff in it that was absolutely stunning. He had the right person in front of him. He will come and throw. He is very tough and will take pictures for as long as he can,” Algieri said of Campa.
