The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez is sure that his former rival Vasily Lomachenko felt the power of his blows from the start of their fight. According to Lopez, the Ukrainian was not eager to fight him in open combat.
“I saw that Lomachenko was trying to keep his rhythm. I noticed that he respects my power. He respected everything that was said before this fight. I noticed this at the moment when the starting gong sounded.
Lomachenko tried to keep his distance. I pressed on him as hard as I could. It is very difficult with a person who, as it seemed to me, did not want to fight. He didn’t want to put up a fight with me. And when he did it, we shocked him. We hit him in the corps, and I think he felt it “, – said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with Max Kellerman.
We will remind, earlier Lopez said that Lomachenko disappointed him.
