Teofimo Lopez Goes Down To One Knee…

If you see Teofimo Lopez out and about, wish him well.

Sure, about being named Prospect of the Year again and having his taser shot on Mason Menard being named Knockout of the Year. 

But beyond those milestones, how about this one…

The 11-0 (9 KOs) hitter, who turned 21  in July, went to one knee and popped the question to a lady.

Give us the scouting report, young gun. 

“Her name is Cynthia Ortez. We are planning to get married in a year and half from now,” the fighter, signed to Top Rank, shared.  

That’s huge…but the fighter will be transitioning back to business right quick.

He’s slated to get back into the ring swing Feb. 2, against Diego Magdaleno, in Texas, underneath a Eleider Álvarez v Sergey Kovalev main event. 

Our best wishes go out to Lopez and the future Mrs. Lopez as well.
