The undisputed world champion in the lightweight division, Teofimo Lopez, continues to criticize his former rival Vasily Lomachenko, whom he sensationally defeated by unanimous decision. According to the American boxer, his Ukrainian counterpart after the fight could not admit defeat.
“A rematch with Lomachenko? That doesn’t make any sense. They didn’t give me the option of a rematch in the contract. I think they didn’t expect me to win. So no, I’ll be honest with you. I did my part and won. His reign is over. He left as a man who does not know how to lose.
We did what we had to do. I respectfully walked up to Lomachenko’s corner, said goodbye to his father and to him, but he chuckled in response. On this we parted “, – said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with Max Kellerman.
We will remind, Lopez also said that Lomachenko did not want to fight with him.
