World Boxing Council (WBC) President Mauricio Suleiman commented on Teofimo Lopez’s victory over Vasily Lomachenko in the fight for the title of undisputed world lightweight champion.
“Teofimo Lopez is living a very special moment in his life. He is a united and undisputed world champion. Lopez was able to dominate when it comes to tactics. In my opinion, Lomachenko was waiting for a hurricane, and this made him choose a counter-attack strategy, but Teofimo had a different plan for fight, and Vasily did not know how to adapt. ”Obviously, in the first half of the fight Lomachenko was not there.
The battle of styles did not happen, and it was not the emotions that were expected, but I really liked the fight, since it is not only about the thrown out blows. Lightweight has a very great future, because now he has become the richest in terms of talents and possible fights, “said Mauricio Suleiman.
