Teofimo Lopez vs. Arnold Barboza in play

Top Rank matchmaker Bruce Trampler thinks that Teofimo Lopez's first fight at 140 pounds could be against undefeated Arnold Barboza, Jr.. Replying to a Barbozoa tweet, Trampler tweeted: "Right on, Arnold! Teofimo Lopez was in [Top Rank's office] with his father the other day. He’s a couple months away from fighting again, but his dad did say he wanted you next. Let’s see how things play out with his health." [Lopez (pictured), the former world lightweight champion is recovering from a punishing loss to George Kambosos after which previously existing internal injuries were discovered]. 


Former world 135-pound champion Teofimo Lopez confirms he wil be moving up to 140 pounds: "I will become undisputed again but at junior welterweight!" 

Response from contender Arnold Barboza Jr. (26-0) who shares the same promoter as Lopez: "Start with me tuff guy."
