Taras Shelestyuk – about Lomachenko’s injury: “I didn’t see that the shoulder prevented Vasya from working to the fullest.”

Ukrainian welterweight Taras Shelestyuk believes that an injured shoulder was not the main reason for Vasyl Lomachenko’s defeat from Teofimo Lopez in the fight for the title of absolute world lightweight champion.

“Lomachenko can try to take the title of absolute world champion, descending to the second featherweight. In a couple of years, you can collect all the belts and make your dream come true.

After the fight, Lomachenko’s team said that Vasya’s shoulder was injured, that he could not box, and he underwent surgery. I watched the fight twice and did not see that the shoulder prevented Vasya from working to the fullest. He was more hindered by the fact that he had not boxed for 14 months and that the opponent did not let him do anything. Instead of one of the best pound-for-pound fighters, Vasya looked like just a good boxer. This is the merit of Lopez, his team and dad, “Shelestyuk said in a video posted on his YouTube channel.

We will remind, Shelestyuk also said that Lomachenko’s team did not have a backup plan for the fight with Lopez.
