Boxing Champion Teófimo López On One With Life Organic Tequila, His Next Fight, Philosophy & More – The Hype Magazine
Published on April 5th, 2021 | by Darren Paltrowitz
One With Life Organic Tequila is hand-crafted from sustainably-grown and farmed Blue Agave in Jalisco, Mexico. Each agave plant is harvested for One With Life — or OWL — Organic Tequila at the height of ripeness, and then roasted in a clay oven adhering to traditional tequila production practice. There are absolutely no additives, sweeteners or glycerin used in making OWL Organic Tequila. This carefully-monitored process results in a clean and flavorful tasting ultra-premium tequila.
While boxing and tequila may seem like strange bedfellows, former Manhattan ADA turned boxing promoter — and founder of One With Life Organic Tequila — Lisa Elovich begs to differ. 4 world champions of boxing recently joined the OWL brand: Teófimo López (the current unified Lightweight World Champion and the youngest 4-belt champion in the history of boxing), Hall of Fame Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes, Lightweight Hall of Famer Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini, and “The Real Million Dollar Baby” Maureen Shea Carranza, a WBC and IFBA Featherweight Champion. Per Elovich in a prepared statement: “If you aren’t fully engaged in the present, whether in life or in the ring, you can get punched in the face figuratively… or quite literally if you’re a boxer.” Continued Elovich: “My new business partners understand the One With Life philosophy better than anybody as you don’t become a champion by losing focus and getting knocked out.”
