Teddy Atlas Praises Teofimo Lopez's 'IT Factors' Ahead of Title Defense

Teofimo Lopez, known for his occasional enigmatic demeanor, is hailed as one of the boxing world's finest due to his exceptional skills. The 26-year-old is gearing up to defend his WBO and Ring Magazine titles against Jamaine Ortiz in less than a month.

Renowned boxing figure Teddy Atlas, renowned for his extensive experience in the sport, has a keen eye for talent. According to Atlas, Lopez possesses the elusive "IT factors," including explosive skills and standout abilities that set him apart from the rest.

“Teofimo has those IT factors,” Atlas said You either have them or you don’t have them.”

Widely regarded as a pound-for-pound talent, Lopez has never shied away from the spotlight. Despite his bold claims early in his career, including his confidence in defeating Vasiliy Lomachenko, Lopez has proven himself by becoming an undisputed champion in the lightweight division before moving up to the super lightweight division.

In his recent bout against Josh Taylor, another formidable opponent, Lopez once again defied the odds as an underdog, securing yet another impressive victory.

When Lopez is at the top of his game both offensively and defensively, few can match his prowess in the ring.

According to Atlas, if Lopez brings his A-game, it elevates him to a level beyond his peers, showcasing his exceptional talent and potential dominance in the sport.
