Russ Anber, cutman of the former lightweight leader Vasyl Lomachenko, is convinced that the Ukrainian boxer a priori deserves revenge with Teofimo Lopez, given the fact that from the very beginning of his pro career he participated in championship fights with serious opponents.
“I think Lomachenko deserves revenge. I’ll explain why. If he had chosen the path that most amateur boxing stars do, he would have won 10-15 easy victories over mediocre fighters. Then Loma would have made 13-14 successful title defenses. and everyone would say: “Oh my God, this guy won the title in the 15th fight and defended it 14 times.” But he did not. In all fights except the first, he fought for the world title. This is his second fight against Salido was the title one.
He didn’t hit the 15-0 record against guys who didn’t have a chance to beat him. He immediately went to the top. As for me, this should be given its due. That says something about him. So give him revenge, he deserves it, “- said Russ Anber in an interview with Matt Casavant.
We will remind, Anber also criticized CompuBox for a sharp response to the claims of Lomachenko.
