Russ Anber, cutman of ex-world champion Vasily Lomachenko, believes that the Ukrainian boxer should have turned on maximum speeds in a fight with Teofimo Lopez after the first third of the fight.
“After the fourth round, Lome should have started taking Lopez out of his comfort zone. I think until the seventh round, Lopez was winning rounds, but he didn’t actually do any damage. He moved around Loma and threw a jab, but missed much more often than he hit. at the same time, Lomachenko blocked a lot of punches with gloves, for six rounds it was boxing with a shadow.
In the course of the fight, Loma began to take more risks. Now it seems that this risk should have been taken earlier. If he did, then Lopez would be under more pressure and expend more energy. This idea was behind a plan to drag Lopez into deep waters, “Anber said in a column for Boxing Social.
We will remind, Anber also said that Lomachenko went to fight with Lopez with a well-thought-out plan.
