Teofimo Lopez continues the information war against his opponent in today’s battle. A few hours before the start of the fight, in an interview with BoxingScene.com, he shared his thoughts on what excuses Lomachenko’s team would use after he lost:
“Dude, they’ll use any excuse,” Lopez said. “He was too tall or too heavy. They have a big age difference. If they fought a few years ago …” I know they will look for any opportunity to justify themselves and I don’t give a shit. Let them say what they want, I don’t care. They will try in every way to distort the fact that at 23 I became the undisputed world champion. “
Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KOs) and Lopez (15-0, 12 KOs) will meet at the ESPN Main Event, which will be streamed from the convention centerMGM Grand (10:00 pm ET; 7:00 pm PT). Boxers will fight for Lopez’s IBF belt and Lomachenko’s WBA and WBO titles, as well as his WBC franchise championship.
