WBA, WBO and WBC Franchise lightweight champion Vasily Lomachenko believes that IBF belt holder Teofimo Lopez will not be able to defeat him when they clash in the ring in a unification fight for four titles on October 17.
The Ukrainian boxer admitted that the difference in size makes lightweight fights more difficult for him in comparison with the previous divisions in which he played. But at the same time, Lomachenko expressed the opinion that, despite the advantage in anthropometry, Lopez did not have enough strategic thinking in the ring to defeat him.
“The hardest thing in fights with lightweights? Difficulties in anthropometry, reach and size. Only in this. Why this time the younger and larger guy does not beat the old and smaller? Because it’s all about strategy, the ability to think quickly in the ring and make decisions . This is the key to victory, “- said Vasyl Lomachenko in an interview with ESPN.
Let us remind you that Lomachenko also said that he does not know the word “failure”.
