IBF Lightweight World Champion Teofimo Lopez believes that despite a decent level of opposition, WBA / WBO / WBС Franchise title holder Vasily Lomachenko has never faced rivals like him.
“Lomachenko fought in lightweight with amazing fighters, but he never met someone like me. As a matter of fact, I’m not just born lightweight, in fact I’m bigger. I’m hungrier, stronger, younger, faster, smarter. I do not respect, so it all comes down to one thing.
All these fighters respected him too much. I am aware of this, do not get me wrong. This guy did what he did. But I believe that I am better than him. The only way for me to prove this is to have my hand raised on October 17, “Teofimo Lopez said in an interview with Boxing Social on YouTube.
We will remind, Lopez also told why he respects Lomachenko.
