The absolute world champion in the lightweight division, Teofimo Lopez, claims that his former rival Vasily Lomachenko, after losing their fight, thought about killing himself. According to Lopez, such thoughts arose in the Ukrainian boxer due to the fact that he is very hard on this defeat.
“Lomachenko wanted to give up, wanted to do all these things. At one point he even had suicidal thoughts, and this is not good. He’s just a person who did not lose. He is not familiar with the feeling of failure. When he lost in amateurs, then he won twice this guy.
But this is a completely different game. Many thought that I would break under pressure, but when you pull me into deep waters, I poison the water, “Teofimo Lopez said in an interview with CompuBox TV YouTube.
We will remind, Lopez also said that Lomachenko says that there was a draw in their fight, because he is trying to console himself.
