In the first round, Lopez went ahead, and Lomachenko began to study his opponent in a proprietary manner. The Ukrainian continued scouting for most of the second round, until the first time he delivered an accurate combination.
Lopez tried to work on the body, but at first, accented punches were rare for him. However, Lomachenko still practically did not attack, which is why the underdog grew bolder and more and more actively struck.
Lomachenko joined the fight only in the sixth round, but Lopez took his ending with a powerful uppercut. At times it seemed that Lomachenko simply did not know what to do with Lopez. The Ukrainian looked surprisingly passive and hardly attacked.
At the beginning of the eighth round, there was a head clash, from which Lopez screamed. Lomachenko immediately made a successful attack, but Lopez immediately responded with his attack. Loma finally got his shot, but Lopez did not shy away from his attacking actions.
At the end of the tenth round, Lopez delivered a powerful blow below the belt, after which Lomachenko asked for a break. After a bright exchange at the beginning of the penultimate round, Loma went on the attack. In this three-minute period, he disturbed Lopez several times. In the last round, both boxers gave up the rest of their strength. After a good start, Lomachenko Lopez seized the initiative, but at the end the American again fell below the belt.
