Porter: “To win, Lomachenko had to drop Lopez twice”

The most experienced welterweight from the United States of America, Sean Porter, commented on the referee’s decision in the fight between Vasily Lomachenko and Teofimo Lopez. All three judges at the end of the fight gave the victory to Lopez. Sean Porter believes that the decision was correct, and in order to compensate for the failed first half of the fight, Vasily Lomachenko needed to send his opponent to at least one or two knockdowns, but this did not happen.

“As for me, Teofimo Lopez deserved to have his hand raised after the fight. I think he did enough to win. He looked good in every round of this fight. The score of 119-109 is, of course, too tough. I lean more towards 116-112. I think it’s more honest. “

“I wrote off most of the late rounds to Lomachenko. I gave him 7th, 8th, 9th and probably 10th rounds, and after that the fight became close again. I thought that Lomachenko needed at least one knockdown in order to bring the fight to a draw and two knockdowns to win. “
