The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez commented on the statement of Vasily Lomachenko about the biased refereeing in their fight.
“As you know, a lot is happening now, but the main thing is that Lomachenko is an amazing fighter. However, you don’t act like a real champion when you do and say things like that. I speak harshly about these guys, but I’m just brought up. I have to be myself. I’m honest about what I see. I wish everyone the very best.
I think Lomachenko will get back on his feet. As I said, he can return to second featherweight. I stated that I would return him at 130 pounds and this is the optimal division for him. I wish him only well and a good career. He still has time to achieve something.
Lomachenko can complain for many reasons. Nobody knows why he does it, only Lomachenko himself. I could have pounced on this guy, but I already hit him, defeating him, “- said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with the YouTube channel Fight Hub TV.
