After an unexpected unanimous decision win over former lightweight leader Vasily Lomachenko, 23-year-old Teofimo Lopez became the youngest undisputed four-belt world champion in history.
Perhaps the cult heavyweight fighter Mike Tyson, like no one else, can imagine what Lopez feels now, because at the age of 20 he became the youngest world champion in the history of heavyweight. “Iron Mike” reached out to the rising star in boxing for advice, recommending that Lopez cherish his moment of glory.
“I would advise Teofimo to be grateful and appreciate the moment as it passes quickly. It ends very quickly. Appreciate these moments,” Mike Tyson said in an interview with Dan Cannobio.
We will remind, Tyson also commented on the constant excuses Deontay Wilder after losing in rematch with Tyson Fury.
