Teofimo Lopez puts on Joe Burrow LSU jersey after big knockout win

Teofimo Lopez Joe Burrow

Teofimo Lopez destroyed Richard Commey with a second-round TKO win on Saturday night in New York, and Lopez paid respect to the Heisman Trophy winner in the ring.

Lopez knocked Commey down in the second round with a monster right hand that had Commey dazed and wobbly. After Commey beat the count, Lopez continued to pummel his opponent until the fight was stopped with just over a minute left in the round, giving Lopez the TKO win.

Lopez, who captured the IBF lightweight title with the win, put on a Joe Burrow LSU Tigers jersey afterwards.

The fight was at Madison Square Garden in New York, nearby where the Heisman Trophy was awarded just before the fight on ESPN, which explains the tie-in. Last year, Lopez put on a Kyler Murray jersey in the ring after winning his fight following the Heisman ceremony too.

The 22-year-old from Brooklyn also did his signature flip in the ring after the win.

Lopez is now 15-0. He will face Vasiliy Lomachenko next.
