British lightweight Luke Campbell, who has a good relationship with undisputed 135-pound world champion Teofimo Lopez, admitted that when they sparred together a few years ago, the cocky American hadn’t mentioned Vasily Lomachenko.
“After the fight, I didn’t write to Lopez in order to get an answer. I just wrote:“ Congratulations, guys. I’m happy for you. Great job. “I can imagine they got hundreds of messages. Mine was just one of many.
Lopez and I sparred in Miami a few years ago. Then he had not yet spoken about Lomachenko. I consider Teofimo the absolute champion, because Lomachenko won the WBC title when he boxed with me, and Lopez beat him. So he’s an absolute champion. The WBC introduced the franchise title that Teofimo owns. Therefore, he really has four belts. One of them is a franchise “, – said Luke Campbell in an interview with the YouTube channel Fight Hub TV.
We will remind, Campbell also said that after the fight with him Lomachenko was no longer the same.
