A journalist from the American website Boxingews 24.com spoke with the famous trainer and commentator Teddy Atlas about the upcoming fight between Lopez and Lomachenko. According to the journalist, Teddy is looking forward to the fight between IBF lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez (15-0, 12 KOs) and WBA, WBC, WBO champion Vasily Lomachenko (14-1, 10 KOs) and bets on Lopez in this match. Teddy Atlas explained why he considers the American boxer to be the favorite in this fight.
According to the recognized expert, Lopez will win because “he is more physically developed.” And among the merits of Loma, Atlas attributes his extraordinary boxing intelligence, thanks to which he can deceive an opponent. At the same time, Atlas believes that Lomachenko’s aggressive counterattacks can only harm him, since Lopez is ready for them:
“Loma should have a different plan. I think that from the first minutes he will focus on not getting hit by Lopez and will move as quickly as possible around the ring.”
We remind you that the fight Lopez – Lomachenko will take place on October 17 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas (USA).
