Note that both fighters showed the same weight, after which they had a tense sterdown, which was not originally planned by the organizers of the show, but it was initiated by Lopez, who provoked Lomachenko to follow his example and go behind the barrier tape. During the duel of looks, the Ukrainian smiled and nodded his head all the time, while Lopez was frowned and did not change his expression until the boxers were pulled apart.
