Teofimo Lopez vs. Sandor Martin: Live Stream, Betting Odds & Fight Card

The Teofimo Lopez story, to this point, serves as a solid summation of how fortunes can rise, and fall hard, for a young prizefighter. Lopez shined versus Vasiliy Lomachenko in their Oct 2020 battle, but beating the pugilistic wizard and scoring all those lightweight belts didn’t prove to be the stroke of massive good fortune one might expect.

Lopez maybe over played his hand in negotiating his next fight, and found himself in a quagmire when fledgling promotional outfit Triller bungled Teo’s defense against George Kambosos.

Lopez didn’t have close to the same spark against Kambosos, who snagged a SD12 from Lopez, who didn’t react well to the loss. He looked outside himself for a reason why he lost to the underdog Aussie.

Now, though, it looks like Teofimo has his head screwed on tighter. We will see about that, and his skills, too, when he fights Sandor Martin in NYC.

The 29 year old Spaniard Martin is a solid hitter, with very average power. His reputation grew when he upset Mikey Garcia in October 2021, but maybe more than is deserved. Because Garcia’s mind on that night wasn’t on his task. He retired after losing to Martin, but most of him had already shifted into hammock mode.

We hear talk about “man strength” regarding young gun boxers. What about “man strength” from a mental perspective? Teofimo is 25, and has wrestled with lots of thorny emotional stuff the last couple years. If he is indeed in a good place mentally, Martin won’t be problematic for the Brooklyn, New York native.
