    Agreed, he needs to be more global, he really needs the UK & Saudi to get his name out to the casuals!

    I don't care how fouced Teo is Subriel Matias would make him quit in 8 rounds or less. Unfortunately Matias is not enough of a big star for TR to sacrifice Teo to him. They wouldn't guarantee him a Teo fight if he signed with TR.

    Kambosos was NOT a big fight. He’s freaking terrible! Teo just had an off night, which does happen sometimes. And I agree with the other guy talking about Teo is not comparable to Broner or Floyd. Teo is Teo
    kambosos was not a big fight??? you being serious?? teo was coming off a win against loma. the fight against kambosos was his first title defense and he loss!

    Hopefully he's starting to grow up a bit. He can be a great asset to the sport.

    I dont consider his fight against taylor a big fight.. you cant just call every fight a big fight LOL... Teo aint got no charisma. his only hope is to go with the bad guy image. but if he cant back his talk up then it's not gonna work for him. it's not that easy to become a star or every boxers would have been one!!

    HE IS!!! he loss to kambosos! Broner at one point, was also looked at highly on here.. until he steps up to the big fights and got exposed... Teo is already 1-1 in big fights. won against loma (who most felt wasnt 100%), then loss to kambosos. how can you be a star? Teo is not a manny pacquaio... Teo will try to be the bad guy image. BUT he is NOT floyd either.

    What's not true and why do you keep mentioning Adrian Broner? Teo is not Broner, nor is he Floyd Mayweather for that matter. You may not agree but I would argue that Teofimo Lopez is one of the most charismatic fighters in the entire sport. He's become something of a crazy antihero type, so he's probably not going to become the endorsement star that he imagines himself becoming, but he does draw attention and intense opinions from fans. I personally couldn't stand him prior to the Lomachenko fight, but now I find him to be one of the more compelling characters in the sport. He absolutely has won the biggest fights of his career (Lomachenko, Taylor for divisional dominance at 135, 140), so not sure how anyone could reasonably compare him to a guy like Broner. He may well lose today to Ortiz, but that's because this guy is competing with only top-shelf opponents. The same cannot be said for many of his contemporaries.

    You don't have to be a good boxer to be a star. You have to be a good fighter, have charisma and be a great entertainer; all attributes that apply to Teo. Not sure if you're talking about some other Teofimo, but Teofimo Lopez does actually win his biggest fights.
    yeah I was wondering what Teo he was talking about .

    not true... that's why i mention guys like broner... he could have been a star too but he comes up short in big fights..

    Teo doesnt have charisma! Teo is going for the bad guy act... which is why i also brought up floyd as a comparison.

    floyd was able to back all his talking up.. i cant see teo doing the same because he's not that good..

    losing to kambosos will not put you in a spot like floyd was in.
