Former rival of WBA / WBO / WBC Franchise lightweight champion Vasily Lomachenko Luke Campbell is confident that IBF belt holder Teofimo Lopez can defeat the Ukrainian only ahead of schedule.
“I saw the media say that Lopez is too big and powerful. But if you do not take into account that he caught Commey with a good punch and quickly knocked out, then it seems to me that some journalists are making a huge monster out of Lopez that destroys everyone. They argue that Lomachenko has no place in this division, I don’t believe in that.
Lopez can only win by knocking out Lomachenko. But I don’t think this will happen. Don’t get me wrong, I really like Lopez and his dad. Several years ago, I sparred with him in Miami for a few rounds. I hope Lopez wins, but I think it will be very difficult for him. I don’t think he will win, “Luke Campbell told ESPN.
