Robert Garcia: “If Lopez beats Lomachenko, he’ll be a fucking superstar”

BOXING

Renowned coach Robert Garcia predicted that if IBF lightweight title holder Teofimo Lopez defeats WBA / WBO / WBC Franchise champion Vasily Lomachenko, he will immediately become a global star.

“This is one of those fights in which I will not choose the winner, based on the fact that this is my ward or that I wish someone victory, because I like one of the fighters more. They are both from good families. Lomachenko at one time trained in my gym, so we know him too. It will be a cool fight, it’s hard for me to choose the winner. But if I was forced to make a prediction, I would say Loma will win by decision.

But I would like to see Lopez win. Not because I don’t like Loma, because he will continue to fight anyway. He lost to Salido, but achieved a lot, made a lot of money. If he loses, he can become champion again. Lomachenko will fight in the featherweight division and no one can beat him. He will be the same superstar, a fighter of the world pound-for-pound.

If Teofimo wins, he’ll be a fucking superstar. This will be the loudest victory this year. So I will be delighted to see Lopez win, “Robert García said live on YouTube on Robert García Unfiltered.
