The absolute world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez commented on the upcoming fight between his former rivals Vasily Lomachenko and Masayoshi Nakatani, which will take place on June 26.
“Lomachenko versus Nakatani is a good fight. One thing I can say about Lomachenko is that he doesn’t dodge from fights. Even when I knocked out Richard Commey, although then he did not understand what I did. He was shocked. So I think that Lomachenko has to be given his due, a lot of guys don’t want to challenge him as he is still a top fighter.
As for Nakatani, this is not a waste. Many fighters do not realize that he is an awkward, tall, long guy. Look what he did to the Puerto Rican. I don’t want to say his name. This is a solid fight and I wish both of them success. They definitely have something in common – they lost to me, “- said Teofimo Lopez in an interview with YouTube channel CompuBox TV.
We will remind, Lopez also said that after the fight with him, Lomachenko was visited by suicidal thoughts.
