The result of the fight for the title of absolute world lightweight champion between Vasily Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez, in which the Ukrainian boxer suffered a sensational defeat on points, caused a lot of controversy. Most experts do not see a problem in the fact that the judges gave the victory to Lopez, but some of them are outraged by the too large gap (116-112, 117-111, 119-109).
In particular, ex-world champion Antonio Tarver does not agree with the almost devastating victory of Lopez. As the star boxing veteran admitted, he wants to see the rematch of Lomachenko and Lopez.
“I definitely disagree with the big gap in the judges’ notes, but Teofimo Lopez definitely won this fight. A very close unanimous decision. I want to see revenge when Vasily Lomachenko heals his shoulder.
Revenges of this magnitude are always good for boxing, “Antonio Tarver wrote on Twitter.
