Meet Teofimo Lopez – Young Fighter Teofimo Lopez is in Las Vegas this weekend to make his professional debut against Ishwar Siqueiros (3-1-1). Lopez participated in the 2016 Olympic games in Rio de Janeiro this past summer representing his native Honduras.
In this short segment captured by our man on the ground Marcelino Castillo, Lopez talks about the opportunity he has to debut on a high profile card.
For Lopez it certainly is a major stage on which to perform, but the fact is that Lopez will probably be fighting in a near-empty arena as the crowd begins to trickle in.
The main event of the evening sees the return of Filipino legend Manny Pacquiao as he faces Jessie Vargas with the WBO world welterweight title on the line. Check out the latest odds for this Saturday’s main events from Top Rank Boxing.
