‘Take Over’ Teofimo Lopez has justified the nickname by literally taking over the boxing world. After just four years as a professional, the 23-year-old holds all four world titles in the lightweight division.
Lopez (16-0) still has several more years to see as a boxer. While he is already a top-tier persona, the upcoming years can only increase his stardom. However, Lopez would also have to continue boxing at the very peak. The lightweight division is full of elite strikers. Hence, Lopez may or may not remain unbeaten throughout his career.
However, he might continue bagging lucrative checks as he is already a millionaire. Teofimo Lopez is one of the youngest boxers to have earned such a sizeable amount and is expected to double up those digits in his next fights. Here’s a detailed look into Teofimo Lopez’s net worth and earnings.
Teofimo Lopez- Taking over the Money Game
Lopez’s fight against George Kambosos Jr. on June 19 at the Triller Fight Club will reportedly get him $6.02 million. Hence, it would be a massive addition to his net worth. This windfall can see him become one of the richest boxers of the time. However, Gossip Gist has already cited Teofimo Lopez’s net worth to be $2.5 million.
According to reports, Teofimo Lopez earned a lucrative $1.25 million from the fight against Lomachenko, which saw him become the unified 135 lbs champion. Furthermore, ‘Take Over’ received 40% PPV shares, which took the numbers higher. That said, Lopez is now a superstar, and many elites like Mike Tyson, Vasyl Lomachenko, and others have acknowledged his prowess.
Meanwhile, boxing has been the primary source of income for Lopez, as he is associated with Bob Arum’s Top Rank. However, he can opt for free agency soon. As the door to sponsorship remains open, Lopez can soon become a multi-millionaire pugilist.
Apart from his boxing skills, Lopez’s headlining abilities have also thrilled the promoters and matchmakers. He is already a PPV star and with more wins on board, he can rightly fall under the similar bracket to cash-cow boxers like Floyd Mayweather or Canelo Alvarez in the coming years.
