IBF Lightweight World Champion Teofimo Lopez continues to argue with unwavering tenacity that he, unlike many boxing experts and fans, is unimpressed with the accomplishments of WBA, WBO and WBC Franchise titleholder Vasily Lomachenko.
“I believe there are many factors that will be key on October 17, not just size. It’s also boxing IQ, footwork and other things that can play a role in this fight. You can be bigger, but sometimes there is something more important We understand that, we know I’m a big lightweight, but I won’t rely on that alone.
Of course, Lomachenko has never fought such a lightweight like me. Of course, I take off my hat to all the fighters he has faced, but I just belong to a different breed. I don’t respect Lomachenko. I do not believe in his hype, I do not believe in what they say about him. This is just the opinion of other people, “- said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with YouTube channel iFL TV.
We will remind, Lopez also promised that in the fight with Lomachenko will answer for his words with his fists.
