Interim WBC Lightweight Champion Ryan Garcia believes Vasily Lomachenko would have defeated Teofimo Lopez if their fight lasted 15 rounds.
“My uncle and I constantly say that the outcome of the Lomachenko – Lopez fight could have been different if they had fought 15 rounds. More precisely, we do not talk about it all the time, but we said this when we watched the fight. If the fight had lasted 15 rounds, Teofimo would not have won.
I don’t care what everyone says. Teofimo didn’t have that much control over this fight. He knew it was round 12, so he exploded a little. But if the fight was 15 rounds, then Lopez would have thought: “Oh, he’s pressing on me.” Deep down, Lopez felt this pressure on himself. He may deny all this, but we ourselves have seen everything with our own eyes. It is simply true, not false. This is what really happened in their fight, “Ryan Garcia said live on Instagram.
We will remind, Garcia also said that Lopez should give Lomachenko revenge.
