WBA / WBO / WBC Franchise lightweight titleholder Vasily Lomachenko explained how his feud with Teofimo Lopez Sr. began.
“I feel good and keep my emotional state until Saturday night. Father Lopez’s words about the beginning of our conflict? It seems to me that he confuses two different stories a little. When he came up and held out his hand to me, it was during the Crawford-Kavalyauskas fight.
Then he came up and held out his hand to me, after which I shook it. Lopez Sr. said: “Don’t take it lightly, my son will bring you a lot of money.” I just looked at him and didn’t say a word to him. He confuses this story.
How did the story begin when he came up in the elevator? It happened at a hotel in New York. I said before that he just started shouting: “Hey Loma, my son will steal your show. He will blow your head off, he will kill you.” I replied: “Okay, let’s bring your son here,” after which the friends of Lopez Sr. took him away, ”said Vasily Lomachenko in an interview with the Morning Kombat YouTube channel.
