Teofimo Lopez: “I don’t need to win the fight with Lomachenko by knockout, but if he comes, I will issue him.”


IBF Lightweight World Champion Teofimo Lopez has no doubts that he will be able to defeat WBA / WBO / WBС Franchise title holder Vasily Lomachenko on October 17. Moreover, the 23-year-old boxer is confident that for this he does not need to finish the fight ahead of schedule.

“I’m such a fighter that if I shake you, I’ll keep doing it. I’m quite sure that Lomachenko will not stand it for 12 rounds. When I’m ready physically and mentally, no one can stop me except myself.

Many recollect the complete fight with Nakatani. In that fight, mentally I was not in the ring. I looked around the whole fight, kept an eye on who was there, looked for a wife, and so on. It was about the things that happened in my personal life.

Things are different now. I expect big things to come after that. I do not need to win this fight by knockout, but if he comes, then I will definitely issue it, “Teofimo Lopez said in an interview with Boxing Social.
