The WBA, WBO and WBC Franchise lightweight champion of the world Vasily Lomachenko admitted that it is more difficult for him to play in the lightweight division than in the featherweight and second featherweight.
“We need to prepare on schedule. We need to sleep, eat and exercise. My dad has a plan and strategy. Of course, the fight with Teofimo Lopez will be different from my other fights. We changed our system and our training, because we worked at featherweight just about speed and reaction. ”Then, when I got up in weight, we added physical training, put on weight and power.
Of course, it’s harder for me to show my skills. When you box with opponents of your size, it’s easier. But when you’re fighting against bigger opponents who are top fighters, it’s not easy. You always need to be focused, “Vasily Lomachenko said in the ESPN show Blood, Sweat & Tears: Lomachenko vs Lopez.
Recall that Lomachenko was also impressed by the muscles of Teofimo Lopez’s arms.
