Former world champion Mikey Garcia believes that the former leader of the lightweight division Vasily Lomachenko before the fight with Teofimo Lopez did not radiate the confidence that he had before.
“It was a good fight. Before the fight, I watched the weigh-in ceremony. The video showed that Lopez was confident in himself. He is a big, born lightweight. I don’t know, I just did not see Lomachenko’s confidence that he had before the previous fights. I saw that he was focused, but I did not notice that he was as confident as before other fights.
I looked at Lomachenko’s track record and the names of the opponents he fought with. And although Lomachenko has an excellent footwork and work with angles, which everyone talks about when it comes to him, but he missed punches and got bruises from B- and C-class fighters, “Mikey Garcia said in an interview with the YouTube channel SNOWQUEENLA.
We will remind, Garcia also said that Lomachenko acted against Lopez too carefully.
