WBC interim lightweight title contender Luke Campbell has admitted that he will be rooting for his former sparring partner Teofimo Lopez, who will face ex-British opponent Vasily Lomachenko on October 17. At the same time, Campbell is convinced that the unification in the lightweight division will be interesting.
“Lopez is a skilled, top fighter. He is skillful, fast, powerful. We spent many rounds with him in Miami. Lopez is an elite boxer. I like him and his father. I have nothing but respect for him.
I think it will be a great fight. Look, fights between two world champions are always cool. Of course, I was in the ring with Lomachenko and I know how good he is. It’s an interesting fight.
I don’t know how this fight will turn out. I want Lopez to win, “Luke Campbell said in an interview with Boxing Social.
