The legendary Russian boxer Kostya Tszyu predicted that Vasily Lomachenko would easily defeat Teofimo Lopez in the fight for the title of absolute world lightweight champion. However, in reality, the fight ended with the victory of the American on points with a score of 116-112, 117-111, 119-109.
According to Tszyu, he does not agree with the judge’s verdict, although he understands that Lomachenko did not perform well. At the same time, the veteran boxing veteran stressed that he still considers the Ukrainian one of the best lightweights in the world.
“I do not agree with any of these decisions. Of course, Vasily Lomachenko did not finish in this fight. I don’t want to say that he was condemned. He performed unconvincingly this time, unlike in previous fights. He did not lose, but he did not win. And despite this, Vasily Lomachenko for me remains one of the best lightweight boxers, “- said Kostya Tszyu to the FAN website.
We will remind, earlier Arthur Beterbiev spoke about the defeat of Lomachenko from Lopez.
