Ex-world champion in four weight categories Mikey Garcia does not exclude that Vasily Lomachenko was really injured before the fight with Teofimo Lopez, but he does not consider it necessary to talk about such things after the fight.
“If the injury took place, then this is not an excuse, but the real reason. If during the preparation he had an injury and then something made itself felt again in the second round of the fight, then this may partially explain why he could not fight like this like the end of a fight, but when you start coming out with such excuses, it sounds bad.
Most fighters will never tell you that they were damaged before a fight. Perhaps Lomachenko was injured, but did not want to talk about it. Nobody talks about it. So I cannot accept it. I say that if there was an injury, then f *** ing resign yourself and don’t say anything. Thing is, it sounds bad to fans. It’s like you’re starting to make excuses, “said Mikey Garcia in an interview with YouTube channel SNOWQUEENLA.
We will remind, Garcia also said that before the fight with Lopez Lomachenko did not feel the former confidence.
