Jervonta Davis: “I would not say that Lopez’s victory over Lomachenko was convincing”


Gervonta Davis says that the victory of the newly minted undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez over Vasily Lomachenko did not impress him. According to Davis, he is a more skilled fighter and if Teofimo remains in the lightweight division, then he could prove it in the face-to-face confrontation.

“Lopez has done his job. Did what I had to do. He was younger, stronger and larger. I wouldn’t say the win was overwhelming, but he definitely got the job done.

Teofimo repeatedly said that he was not looking in my direction. This is probably due to the fact that he is big for a light weight and wants to change his weight class. Yet I have the entire skill set, and he doesn’t. For example, footwork. So if he wants to stay lightweight, then we can fight, ”said Davis.

Recall that the fight between Lopez and Lomachenko took place on October 17 at The Bubble arena of the MGM Grand hotel complex in Las Vegas. The victory by unanimous decision was won by Teofimo.
