Former world champion André Ward shared his thoughts on the upcoming unification in the lightweight division between three prestigious title holder Vasily Lomachenko and IBF champion Teofimo Lopez.
“Loma learned and honed a style that allowed him to upset and disassemble bigger opponents, making the big guys look small at the end of the fight. But Lopez’s power is also a cause for concern. noticeable in the first six rounds, Theo will be the most dangerous during this period, obviously during this time Lome will have to keep an eye on what he is doing.
However, Lomachenko knows how to exhaust an opponent psychologically and physically. He knows how to let off steam from the blows, and then when that happens, you see him rushing forward. At close range, he uses his physics more actively. Then it seems that he is bigger than the rival, “Andre Ward told Yahoo Sports.
We will remind, Ward also suggested that at the press conference before the fight with Lopez Lomachenko looked a little alarmed.
