Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and coach of the undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, is pleased that his son defeated Vasily Lomachenko by unanimous decision, and not ahead of schedule. The specialist believes that in this way they destroyed the myth of the famous Ukrainian Matrix.
“We did something that no one has ever done in a boxing game. Did you hear what my son said when he jumped on the ropes after defeating Lomachenko?” I just did it. ”He shouted,“ I just did it. ”We held on it is in itself two years.
Do you know what was the best in this fight? That we broke the Matrix. If we knocked out this dude in two rounds, everyone would say: “Well, okay” … We did it our own way – we outboxed the boxer, “said Teofimo Lopez Sr. in a video posted on his Instagram page by sports lawyer Nikolai Kovalchuk.
Recall that Lopez Sr. also addressed the Ukrainians and made a toast in honor of President Klitschko.
