The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez believes that talking about the injury received on the eve of the fight against him, Vasily Lomachenko only worsens his situation. According to the 23-year-old American, he himself went into battle, overcoming health problems.
“People should understand that I also went to the fight with Lomachenko with an injury, if you want to talk about injuries. But I am not making excuses about it. You know what I mean.
This is part of boxing. In boxing or any other fighting sport, you don’t come out 100 percent ready. I think that, for example, all MMA fighters understand this. If Lomachenko, who some called the number one pound-for-pound in the world, uses such an excuse, it looks even worse than anything else, “Teofimo Lopez said in an interview with ESPN.
We will remind, earlier his manager Egis Klimas told about Lomachenko’s injury.
