IBF Lightweight World Champion Teofimo Lopez commented on a tense battle of views with WBA / WBO / WBC Franchise titleholder Vasily Lomachenko, which the boxers fought in violation of social distancing rules.
“Why did I want to stand in front of Lomachenko? Because this is how the battle of views should go. This is a battle. You understand what I’m talking about. I don’t like this situation with COVID, but it turned out the way it worked out. He passed a negative test, I passed a negative test, so why not get closer to each other? Everyone wanted this, there is enmity between us. I’m ready.
Keys to Beating Lomachenko? Turn on your televisions on October 17 and you will see everything. There are many keys to victory that I will show you. There will be many blows to the body and head. There are many things I can do. So turn on the broadcast on October 17 and enjoy. This is a show that is definitely worth seeing.
I will kick his ass, but at the same time I will act wisely, because I can. I am delighted and very grateful for this opportunity, “Teofimo Lopez said in a comment to Top Rank.
