Lopez hadn’t fought since his loss to George Kambosos Jr last year at 135lbs.

He stepped up from lightweight for his return and was far too strong for Campa.

The former undisputed lightweight king then called out current unified champion Josh Taylor as well as a couple others.

He said after his win: “We have been at 135lbs for nine years it was killing my body.

“I just turned 25 and we want Josh Taylor, we want Prograis, we want Zepeda – we want to become a two-time undisputed world champion.

Lopez even took a jab at the British boxer’s wedding after he married in June.

Taylor tied the knot with his wife in Scotland and is set to return to the ring later this year.

Oscar De La Hoya was ringside for Lopez’s win, and the Golden Boy promotes another potential opponent in Ryan Garcia.

Lopez added: “If Josh Taylor is too busy with his wedding and there’s nobody else around because the WBA belt is taken and the WBC is going to be fought between Zepeda and Prograis then so f***ing be it.

“I’m here to fight all these boys and take away all their dreams. I’m their f***ing nightmare.”
