WBA, WBO and WBC Franchise Lightweight World Champion Vasily Lomachenko is set to hold IBF belt winner Teofimo Lopez accountable for his words when they step into the ring on October 17th.
“At my house, if you insult someone and say something, you can get hit in the face and run into a street fight. And after that nothing will happen. If you beat someone, you just leave.”
Here in the USA everything is completely different. In our house, people do not chat, because they know that they will be responsible for it. If we were in Ukraine, Lopez would quickly understand that you can’t open your mouth.
If I have the opportunity to hurt him, I will use it. Lopez is a good puncher. He has excellent speed, IQ. He is young and hungry, but I will try to keep him under water as long as I can do without air, “- said Vasily Lomachenko in an interview with The Ring.
