Former world champion Serhiy Lipinets believes that Vasyl Lomachenko can still win the championship title, but notes that he will have a better chance of this if the Ukrainian boxer returns from lightweight to second featherweight.
“I think that Lomachenko and Usyk will get to the belts, but the question is whether they can win. Vasily’s guys in this weight category are all young, smart and hitting. He and Usyk are 33-34 years old. They are already aged, have had many fights. in an amateur career. This also leads to injuries. Lomachenko constantly breaks or damages something before fights, does operations. Young guys will be hard to fight. Jervonta Davis ended the fight with a beautiful knockout.
If Lomachenko goes down, I think he will take the belts. Maybe he really had a left shoulder injury, he will have a good camp and get some belt back. Or they will negotiate a revenge by paying what Lopez wants. I believe that he can win if he is not injured. But suddenly he still has some kind of injury “, – said Sergey Lipinets in an interview with the YouTube channel USACHEV TV.
Let us remind you that Lipinets also said that he counted a draw in the Lomachenko – Lopez fight.
