From: Carl Moretti <cmoretti@Date: August 21, 2023 at 8:56:57 PM AST To: Paco <pacoval@, golivieriesq@ Cc: Jeremy Koegel <JKoegel@ Subject: Teofimo Lopez
I hope this letter finds you well.
The purpose of my communication is to respectfully request that consideration be given for elevating current WBO jr. welterweight champion Teofimo Lopez to Super Champion status.
As you are aware Teofimo most recently defeated then WBO world champion Josh Taylor at MSG on June 10. His performance has received accolades throughout the boxing community as well as a nomination for “Performance of the Year”.
It should also be noted that Taylor is a former Undisputed Unified 140-pound world champion never losing any of his titles inside the ring when he fought Teofimo.
This convincing victory, as well the dominant one against former unified lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko, clearly reflects the magnitude of Teofimo’ accomplishments and justifies our request to be named a Super Champion in the junior welterweight division.
He is now once again listed as a pound-for-pound fighter and clearly “Must See TV”, as evident by his ratings on ESPN and across all social platforms that generate immense interest when he fights and defends his WBO jr. welterweight championship.
Should there be anything else you may require or would like to discuss in further detail please feel free to reach out to me at any time.
As always, we appreciate your consideration and sincerely believe in the merits of our request.
