Teofimo Lopez: “I would like to see other lightweights in a fight against someone like Lomachenko”


Lightweight division leader Teofimo Lopez said he sees no major challenges for himself at 135 pounds. The American boxer believes that the rest of the division’s tops need to fight Vasily Lomachenko in order to prove their worth.

“Perhaps my biggest challenge is welterweight fighters. They are a bigger weight class and they can probably take a few more punches. I don’t think about anyone in my weight. I would like to see them. [других легковесов] in a fight against someone like Lomachenko. Many have turned their backs on him, but I still consider him the second number in the division after me.

It will be cool to see all these guys fighting each other. I want at least one of them to come up to the fight as an underdog. I was the underdog in two fights in a row, “Teofimo Lopez told ESPN.

We will remind, Lopez also stated that Lomachenko outright won.
