Over the past year, former unified world lightweight champion Vasily Lomachenko has sparked several political scandals that have turned many Ukrainian fans away from him. The boxer was noted for several resonant statements, as a result of which he became the object of criticism at home. As a result, after the defeat of Lomachenko by Teofimo Lopez, many of his compatriots began to rejoice and remind the boxer of all past misdeeds.
Former undisputed world champion Kostya Tszyu condemns this behavior of fans. He is convinced that real fans will always support their beloved boxer.
“This is the business of the people themselves. There is such a word“ loyalty ”. Whether you win or lose. If he is your real fan, a fan loyal to you, he will be with you forever. Those who comment on the loss of my friend Vasily Lomachenko in this way are lousy fans – said Kostya Tszyu in a commentary to FAN.
Recall that Tszyu also shared his opinion on the defeat of Lomachenko from Lopez.
