Mayweather promotions, part: two: here we go, we are talking about dynamite, david lopez.
You might not know this kid because he is a ripe age of only 18 years old in the super light division.
This southpaw is six feet tall and he’s ranked 231 out of 315.
In the united states right now and 1403 out of 2058 in the world sporting 100 ko rating, why? Because he’s 1-0 with one ko coming off his debut win? This was last year october, the 30th 2021.
It was a tko in the first round, honestly guys he is part of mayweather promotions, as you should know, because this is part two have you seen the uh? Have you seen the video of his debut? Yes, i have i watched the video of his debut um.
He made quick work of his opponents.
I landed uh very quick.
He has a very quick right hook from his self proposition, sets it up with some good jabs from a distance and then fake, the jab and just and sometimes like when you, when you have a very good jab, you know.
Sometimes you can fake the jab and just whip the hook in there, but when you’re fast enough, you can just whip the hook in there, and you know the first movement that you make.
Your opponent might just assume that it’s a jab because that’s what he that’s! What he just hit him with a couple of times so when he caught him with that right hook like he didn’t, really have to set it up, he just whipped it in there dropped him and then uh dropped him again, and the referee realized that you know The skill level was just you know: yeah yeah yeah, so david um yo he’s an 18 year old uh he’s a phenom and boxing prodigy that hails from oakland california he’s proud to represent his mixed culture of black and filipino heritage, he’s regarded.
He was regarded as a top prospect and was ranked number one fighter in the us within his division consecutively consecutively, 2015 and 2016.
He started boxing at the age of five.
He quickly showcased as a young boy, remarkable hand, speed, uh hand, skills balance and, more importantly, a high level of poise, which is usually a quality that is only um in very few boxers man and usually the elites of the past and presents such as you know, Floyd mayweather, andre ward, just to name two with the level of sophistication to this kid’s game.
Uh david is committed to become one of the greatest fighters of all time.
Interestingly enough, he also comes from a bloodline of fighters.
Uh from you know, his great grandfather was a professional boxer in the 20s, in the philippines, um uh and and up to his father and and trainer chris lightning lopez, who was a former two-time golden gloves champion and his older brother, daniel lopez, who’s an accomplished amateur Boxer, so there you go man.
This kid is like destined for greatness in the boxing ring, and you know he signs and mayweather promotions, and you know he’s he’s doing it right.
Man he’s doing it right high, you know high iq in the ring man, great hand, speed skill for sure.
You can see that uh, you know and and that poise they’re talking about that poise and you can see it in you know his his debut fight.
There’S no nerves he’s not nervous, he’s not worried, he sees it coming.
You know and he’s very calm.
This kid’s gon na be great.
I can’t wait to see him out again.
I don’t know why they’re holding back and they’ve and they haven’t let him fight again.
Man mayweather get this kid out there.
Man put this kid in the ring, because we’ve got to see him.
We got to see his journey.
It’S going to be great man, you know well, i think they’re not really in a rush, because he’s still only 18 years old, yeah he’s he’s only 18.
Sure first should be like his first year as a senior at the amateur level um.
So maybe that’s one of the reasons why they’re not really in a rush to to throw him to the wolves, yet um he’s still working his way up um.
You know uh uh um, the one thing that i did notice um when i was going through his uh, his amateur stuff.
You know he’s funny that he signed to mayweather because one of his biggest wins as an amateur.
If you know his little kid was against one of mayweather’s guys this kid named cashflow.
I remember hearing his name years ago.
Just you know just randomly on youtube like before youtube was as big as it was now right.
Maybe i had a few videos up and i remember hearing about this kid cash and he was pretty good and i always wondered about whatever happened to him and just so happened when i was doing the research on on david and david dynamite lopez.
Today, um it says that they fought and i watched the fight and he beat him.
He beat that cash flow kid from mayweather’s gym.
So that’s probably one of the one of one of the things that caught mayweather’s attention to sign him.
Yo, honestly, he amassed a 34-4 amateur record.
He developed a reputation as a boxer puncher who sticks and moves and always delivers when he, when the stakes are high.
Man, in fact, at the age of 16, david got noticed when he sparred pro kevin johnson and held his own, an impressive multi-round showing in 2021 at age 17 david signed to mayweather promotions, fulfilling that dream to turn pro man, and we got to see that debut And now i can’t wait to see this kid jump back in the ring again.
Man and uh show us what his true skills are man, because you know he is from a great lineage of boxers.
It’S bred into him, born you know into it.
He eats it.
He sleeps it, he does it.
You know this kid’s all about boxing and we’re gon na get to see another another building of a great man.

If you want to say anything before we get out of here about this kid, uh yeah yeah well, like i said every day, you know i always i i find myself repeating the same thing all the time that i’m interested to see the see where their future Goes um but really interested with this guy.
You know i, like i said, watch some of his amateur fights when he was just a little kid and a lot of times with little kids.
It’S just there’s, not a high skill level.
It’S just they’re, just throwing going crazy with uh with david, you could tell, he actually was was was thinking in there and it was actually placing his punches with accuracy, throwing a nice one.
Two one hooks he wasn’t just throwing like you know: windmill punches, like most little kids do right.
