The Love Story of Teofimo and Cynthia Lopez
The Lopez couple has a one-of-a-kind relationship. Teofimo encountered Cynthia on his way back to Las Vegas following his May 12th battle with Vitor Jones Freitas.
Throughout his travel, the boxer stayed to himself because he didn’t want to chat to anyone. However, everything changed once he spoke with a flight attendant.
A flight attendant complimented his gloves while he was putting them in the plane’s overhead locker. He informed her he was a boxer, and she inquired as to whether he had just lost a match.
“Does it appear like I lost?” he said arrogantly of the flight attendant. Teofimo was already smitten when she left him alone.
Cynthia was the flight attendant on that particular aircraft. The boxer kept returning to see her, making up numerous excuses in the process. He inquired about her age and learned that she was 25, almost five years his senior.
Teofimo approached Cynthia and the two met at Dave & Buster’s in Las Vegas. Cynthia stated there that she did not wish to date Teofimo till he reached 21.
The boxer was sympathetic to Cynthia’s fears, but he refused to give up. He, on the other hand, sent her flowers on a regular basis and expressed interest in her.
Teofimo’s success as a boxer, Cynthia initially believed, was arrogant. Regardless, she continued to converse with him and found he had more to offer. He listened to her, encouraged her, and made her laugh. She began to reciprocate the feelings soon after.
Teofimo turned 21 in August 2018, and Cynthia went to his house to greet him. She arrived with flowers, champagne, cake, and a handwritten message asking, “Would you be my boyfriend?” The fighter agreed to the proposition, and the two relocated to Brooklyn together.
On April 23, 2019, the couple became husband and wife. Cynthia’s parents live in Arkansas, therefore the ceremony took place there. The couple flew to Greece for their honeymoon three months after their wedding.
They are still married and have a happy life together. They did, however, have to overcome certain obstacles together, the most significant of which being the Lopez family’s disapproval.
Cynthia was frowned upon by Teofimo’s family
Lopez has received nothing but criticism from his manager and family since Cynthia asked him to be her boyfriend. His manager referred to her as a gold digger and warned his client that the relationship would not end well.
Teofimo’s family was vehemently opposed to his decision, which enraged the fighter. Teofimo Lopez Sr., the boxer’s father, was his strongest supporter and lone trainer. Lopez Sr. didn’t get along well with his father, and he didn’t want history to repeat itself.
Teofimo became the family’s breadwinner at a young age. He was looking out for his parents, as well as his sisters and niece. He didn’t enjoy it when his family made disparaging remarks about Cynthia. None of the Lopez women showed up at his wedding.
Jenny, his mother, was annoyed that the wedding was taking place so quickly. She didn’t dislike Cynthia, but she didn’t approve of their relationship. Adriana, his sister, had a tense relationship with his wife.
Teofimo has barred Adriana from visiting him because of the strained relationship between his sister and his wife. Even Lopez Sr. refused to go to the wedding. He went, though, just for the sake of his relationship with his son.
Lopez Sr. found it difficult to see his son marry at such a young age. As a result, he came to the ceremony inebriated to numb the agony and get through the day. Despite the family turbulence, Teofimo married the love of his life.
Teofimo’s connection with his wife and family eventually took a toll on him. He became depressed after the couple returned from their honeymoon. He couldn’t keep his emotions in check. He was irritable and depressed all of the time. He was also consuming a significant amount of alcohol.
Cynthia persuaded her husband to see a therapist, reassuring him that he wasn’t alone. Teofimo gradually improved when she taught him to acknowledge his pain.
He is still an unbeaten boxer, continues to train with his father, and is more content than ever with his wife and pets.
