Teofimo Lopez: “Lomachenko’s excuses resemble the situation after the Mayweather – Pacquiao fight”


The absolute world champion in the lightweight division, Teofimo Lopez, drew an analogy between his fight with Vasily Lomachenko and the grandiose megafight Floyd Mayweather – Manny Pacquiao, after which the legendary Filipino, like Loma, complained about his injury.

“I think Lomachenko’s excuses are reminiscent of the situation after the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. Resign yourself to defeat and work on what you need to work on. Perhaps he needs to go down to the second featherweight.

It seems to me that many people just drew attention to this. I also dealt with injuries during training camp. Obviously, they made themselves felt. In general, one must understand that any athlete cannot approach the competition with one hundred percent readiness. There will always be some problems.

In contact sports, there is a high risk that you will not come up to a fight or match completely ready. You just have to find another way. I believe that I always cope with difficulties, ”said Teofimo Lopez on the Last Stand Podcast.

We will remind, Lopez also said that everyone wants to see his revenge with Lomachenko.
