Russ Anber, cutman of ex-world champion Vasily Lomachenko, defended his ward after his defeat to Teofimo Lopez.
“Of course, now there are idiots criticizing Loma. They say he was exposed and shit like that. This is ignorance. The truth is that Lomachenko is still an exceptional fighter. He is a wonderful boxer. He is a featherweight fighter who has moved up to second featherweight. because of the lack of opposition. Everyone fled from him, nobody wanted to fight him, so he moved to the lightweight division and fought with the bigger guys, giving them a big handicap. None of the fighters took such risks as he did when he climbed higher its natural weight.
Mikey Garcia is a great fighter and a good guy. He climbed the same way as Lomachenko, but did not win a round against Errol Spence. Loma rose, beat a number of lightweights, won three titles and came close to beating Lopez, “Anber said in a column for Boxing Social.
We will remind, Anber also said that Lomachenko went to fight with Lopez with a well-thought-out plan.
