The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez admitted that he expected to see much more from Vasily Lomachenko than the Ukrainian demonstrated during their fight.
“Perhaps I differ from the rest in that when I talk about faith in myself, this is so. It is already scrolling in my head that I have defeated an opponent. I just need to show it when the opportunity arises. I always had this confidence …
Lomachenko disappointed me. Everyone was praising this guy so much, I wanted to see it myself. But when I entered the ring, everything turned out to be completely different. I take nothing from him, but he played our game. We pulled him into our gameplay. No matter what they thought there, we deprived him of the battle plan, “- said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with The New York Times.
We will remind, Lopez also said that Lomachenko knew that he could not shake him.
