Former four-weight world champion Mikey Garcia was impressed by the performance of the newly minted lightweight division leader Teofimo Lopez against Vasily Lomachenko. In his opinion, after defeating Loma, Lopez became a real star of world boxing.
“After the defeat of Lomachenko, we saw the birth of a star. Teofimo took this place, seized the moment and did everything cool. My score was a little closer. I think Lomachenko won 3-4 rounds, but I saw Lopez dominate the whole evening. So I congratulate him, he did a great job.
Lopez has clearly shown that he is one of the best at the moment. I believe he will achieve great results. He has already shown this in a fight against the best boxer at the moment in the person of Lomachenko, “said Mikey Garcia.
We will remind, Garcia also said that Lomachenko vividly speaks only against weaker and smaller rivals.
