Former world champion and now ESPN expert Timothy Bradley discussed the prospects of Vasily Lomachenko after the defeat to Teofimo Lopez.
“The 14-month downtime didn’t bring Lomachenko anything good. A boxer with so many fights has to stay active at that age. So you keep your sharpness.
Lomachenko will strive for revenge. I have no doubt about it, as he is the winner, and in this fight he lacked a little. It doesn’t matter what the judge’s notes say. It was a close fight. I counted a two point lead for Lopez – 115-113. Loma just started late. Speed, size – there were many factors that made him worry.
I don’t know if Lopez will give him revenge, since there was no such option in the contract. If Teofimo does not give Lomachenko a rematch, he should return to featherweight to see what he can do there. He still has the skills and abilities. You saw what happened when Lomachenko showed them and started putting pressure on Lopez at the end of the fight, “Timothy Bradley told ESPN.
