Boxing fans want to know a little bit more about the personal life of ‘The Takeover’, such as who is Teofimo Lopez’s girlfriend? Here is everything you need to know about the two-weight world champions love life.

Who Is Teofimo Lopez’s Girlfriend?

Teofimo Lopez became a two-division world champion as he defeated Josh Taylor for the WBO World Super-Lightweight Title on June 10. ‘The Takeover’ won the fight via unanimous decision at Madison Square Garden in his hometown of New York, picking up another world title belt in the process.

He then successfully defended his title against Jamaine Ortiz last time out, but was far from his brilliant best. As one of the best 140-pound fighters on the planet now, boxing fans want to know a bit more about Teofimo Lopez and his personal life. Well, here at SportsLens we can reveal that the 26-year-old was formerly married to his ex-wife, Cynthia Lopez.

The pair met on a Delta Airlines flight from New York City to Las Vegas, where Cynthia was working as an air hostess. This was around the time of Lopez’s fight against Brazilian boxer Vitor Jones, who he knocked out in 64 seconds in their lightweight bout in May 2018.

After meeting on their travels, the pair began dating for a while, before getting married on April 23, 2019. The pair then jetted off to Greece soon after for their honeymoon, enjoying their first trip away as a married couple.

Both Cynthia and Teo both shared several photographs on their respective social media accounts during their relationship, but that is said to have ended now. The pair recently go officially divorced in 2023, after Cynthia filed for divorce midway through the year.

Lopez has admitted that his personal issues haven’t helped his boxing career at all, but he aims to put it all behind him and get his boxing career back on track. That plan seems to be working so far for Lopez after he recently became a two-weight world champion.

Teofimo & Cynthia Lopez Dating History

Teofimo Lopez and his ex-wife Cynthia Lopez began dating back in 2018. As previously mentioned, the pair got married in April 2019. Fast forward four years and it seems their relationship is close to being over, with a divorce settlement currently ongoing.

Back in 2021, the pair welcomes a baby boy into the world. This made Lopez a father for the very first time. Their child was born soon after Lopez’s first career defeat to George Kambosos Jr. Losing for the first time as a professional would have been a dark day for Lopez, but welcoming a child into the world was certainly a proud day.

Teofimo Lopez’s son was born back in 2021, and is two-years-old now. However, soon after the birth of his child, the pair separated which has ultimately led to Cynthia filing for divorce.

In a recent interview with Punch Drunk Boxing, Lopez admitted that he has a lot of demons to face in his personal life and has had to battle though some tough times:

“Just a little insight: my ex-wife, she filed for divorce. She’s going to take half of my money and everything else with it. Though, you know, it’s a part of it. It is what it is. It comes with the territory. You live and you learn. As long as I’m living, I’m learning.”

It seems like Lopez still has a lot to deal with outside of the ring, but he certainly put that behind him in his last fight as he became a two-weight world champion. Quite an achievement given his personal circumstances right now.
