The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez said that the information released by the camp of Vasily Lomachenko that the Ukrainian boxer entered the ring injured does not cause him anything but pity. According to the American, in boxing, no one manages to approach a fight in an optimal state.
“This is a fight. I think everyone understands that if you are a fighter or just an athlete, then you do not approach the fight with one hundred percent readiness. I was not 100 percent ready before this fight. I had minor injuries, and because of them now I need to get tested.
But as a true champion, I don’t make excuses. This is part of boxing. You will take damage because of what you do. This is a feature of contact sports. Therefore, you never approach a fight one hundred percent. Their attempts to play this card and present it as the cause of defeat make me feel sorry for him, “- said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with YouTube channel Yahoo Sports.
