Despite all the hard-hitting words addressed to him, the owner of the WBA, WBO and WBC Franchise lightweight titles Vasily Lomachenko is grateful to the IBF world champion Teofimo Lopez and his father Teofimo Lopez Sr., who, with their loud statements, constantly stir up interest in their fight planned on October 17th in Las Vegas.
“A year ago, when Teofimo started talking about me, we started organizing this fight. Lopez won the championship title, now he is the world champion. That’s why I told him: ‘Welcome to my club.’
I want to say a big thank you to Lopez and his father as they are promoting our fight. I don’t need to say anything to promote. I have a goal and a dream. I just need to do my job, “said Vasily Lomachenko in the program Blood, Sweat & Tears: Lomachenko vs Lopez on the ESPN channel.
We will remind, Lomachenko also admitted that it is harder for him to box in light weight because of the size of his rivals.
