Teofimo Lopez hits Triller office, shows off his belts

Teofimo Lopez will face George Kambosos Jr this spring on Triller PPV.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Triller put a jolt into the boxing world recently when they bid $6 million to win the rights to Teofimo Lopez’s mandatory lightweight title defense against George Kambosos Jr, vastly out-bidding Matchroom Boxing (who came in second) and Lopez’s own promoters at Top Rank (who came in third).

On Friday, the 23-year-old Lopez posted a photo from the Triller office, where he had a bunch of his belts on a a ping pong table where there were also some pillows that probably cost a lot of money. Why a ping pong table? I dunno, man, new media ventures like that always like to kinda mix it up in the office, y’know, like, this is just a fun place to work, around here they do things a little differently.

“Triller said they wanted (the) most exciting fighter in the game to bring to their platform,” Lopez wrote. “They found the right one!”

It’s expected that Lopez (16-0, 12 KO) will defend his WBA, IBF, and WBO lightweight titles against IBF mandatory challenger Kambosos (19-0, 10 KO) this spring, headlining a Triller pay-per-view event. They’ve said they’re targeting a May date, but that’s TBA.
