Triller Announced Teofimo Lopez Card Ticket Info And Concert Artists
Tuesday saw Triller rollout more of their planned “Fight Club” next PPV involving Undisputed Lightweight champ, Teofimo Lopez, and the concert performers who start the Miami show off on June 19th.
The company has decided that they will have some fans present at LoanDepot Park, the home of the baseball Miami Marlins, and announced prices along with musical acts and artists,

Per the item in Rolling Stone, Megan Thee Stallion, Meek Mill and Myke Towers will be part of the huge slate of concert artists.
“This line-up is as good as the best of the best festivals,” said Triller Fight Club partner Snoop Dogg told famed music magazine. “For the first time ever we’re offering fans two for one, come see an epic world-class concert followed by the year’s most important boxing event.”
“Come for the concert, come for the ‘Greatest Showman’ show, come for the dancing, come for the boxing, or come for it all,” Triller co-owner Ryan Kavanaugh said. “Unlike past events, the concert will be first, so if you only want the concert, you can do that. If it’s not your cup of tea, come for the boxing and the show, or come for all of it. We have something for everyone.”
As Kavanaugh mentioned, the adjustment of putting the music prior to the fight card is a switch from what Triller did with their April show in Atlanta that lasted over four hours. That saw the musical performances at times taking over 45 minutes in blocks, while delaying the next fight on that card that was headlined by Jake Paul knocking out Ben Askren with one punch in the first round.
As for the pricing of the seating inside the baseball stadium, Triller put tickets on sale three weeks in advance of the event with a price structure of as little as $100 for the upper levels and all the way up to $10,000 that includes for what Triller is billing as “VIP ringside seating with dining service.”
All of this comes on the heels of Triller having pulled a huge surprise in the purse bid for the Lopez mandatory defense. In the February the virtual bid process from the International Boxing Federation headquarters in New Jersey, Triller had secured the rights to Lopez’s first title defense with a whopping $6+ million bid.
The Honduran born, New York raised star Lopez scored an impressive upset decision win on October 17th over one of the top pound for pounder fighters in Vasyl Lomachenko in Las Vegas. That pushed his career record to 16 – 0, 12 KOs, and, it made him the man to beat at 135 lb. with all the major titles.
As for Kambosos, he was last in action a couple of weeks after that on Halloween winning a hard-fought, split-decision over Britain’s Lee Selby. That made the Australian 19 – 0 with 10 KOs.
The undercard includes: Michael ‘The Bounty” Hunter vs. Mike Wilson in a WBA heavyweight title eliminator bout and Franchon Crews-Dezurn (WBC and WBO champion) meets Elin Cederroos (IBF and WBA champion) in a ladies Super Middleweight Undisputed title bout.
Triller is taking a real risk with the money that they are laying out for Lopez and such an ordinary title defense. And further, their card will go up against a PBC/Showtime main event featuring WBC Middleweight champ, Jermall Charlo. And, it will be against Naoya “The Monster” Inoue defending his unified Bantamweight titles on ESPN in Las Vegas. Plus, finally, Hall of Fame legend Julio Cesar Chavez Sr. fighting an exhibition in Mexico on PPV against the son of the late Hector “Macho” Camacho, all on that same June 19th night.
