IBF lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Teofimo Lopez (15-0-0, 12 KO) told in an interview with The Ring how to neutralize the already common noun bias towards the Ukrainian Vasily Lomachenko (14-1-0, 10 KO).
“People say that he can’t be stopped, but nobody sees what I see. He has his side steps, and I have a left hook, and there is a chance that he will hit him.
His strides will not determine the winner of the fight. I have boxing skills and no one has yet fully seen them. Plus, I hit with both hands. I’m ready for anything. I’m sure he underestimates me, but I will not do it, “Lopez said.
