Former world champion Carl Frampton believes that, despite the defeat by Teofimo Lopez, Vasily Lomachenko remains the strongest lightweight in the world. He is convinced that in the absence of health problems, the Ukrainian can deal with any opponent in 135 pounds.
“Obviously, Lopez is having a hard time hitting the lightweight limit. He won’t be able to stay there for long. In my opinion, he needs to get up. I think a completely healthy Lomachenko will beat any lightweight on the planet, including Davin Haney and Gervont Davis. Fully healthy Loma. is a fantastic fighter.
I guess we were all surprised by his performance. We are not used to seeing this. Lomachenko taught us that he shows much more. He was definitely worse than usual, and we know why.
Lopez should move up to first welterweight, and Lomachenko should undergo surgery and return completely healthy. And I think that such a Loma will defeat any lightweight in the world, “said Carl Frampton in a video posted on his YouTube channel.
