The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez considers the criticism of the fans to Vasily Lomachenko after the defeat in their fight unfounded.
“The fans unjustly forgot about Lomachenko. They supported him all the time. Why are they not with him now? Because he lost? turned out to be the largest eggs in the lightest weight. Know why? Because I went to fight, no matter what the cost. I lost between 800 thousand and 1 million dollars, but I made a bet as I risk in my life. This is the main thing, for this I live.
I think many need to stop and pay tribute to Lomachenko. I still think he will beat all the other fighters. That’s why I put him in second place in the lightweight division, “Teofimo Lopez said in an interview with YouTube channel iFL TV.
We will remind, Lopez also said that the victory over Lomachenko made him the undisputed leader of the division.
