IBF lightweight title holder Teofimo Lopez is convinced that after the fight with WBA / WBO / WBС Franchise champion Vasily Lomachenko will take his place as leader of the 135-pound division.
“I believe the postponement was good for both of us. We needed a break. We needed that time frame. It probably did us more good than anything else. I believe you will see two fresh There will be no excuses. We will be in shape, prepare, and the fight will be explosive. I am looking forward to it. The fight will be competitive.
I believe that I am the type of fighter who lives by the principles of the old school, when the best fought the best. To show that you are better than other boxers, you have to meet them. That is why I will fight on October 17th. Many look at Lomachenko as a guy who is capable of defeating anyone, becoming an absolute champion and a pound-for-pound leader. I’m here to take it all away. I am here to fulfill my destiny and leave a legacy.
I think Lomachenko has done enough in boxing. I think it’s my turn and my time. So we train hard and I know I can do it, “Teofimo Lopez said in an interview with YouTube channel SecondsOut.
