Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and coach of the undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, claims that in the second round of the fight with Vasily Lomachenko, his son was close to knocking down his opponent.
“In the second round, my son almost dropped Lomachenko. It seems like it was in the second round. Lomachenko walked away, and my son hit him in the side of the head, after which he flew to the side. I think then Lomachenko felt the power. My son hit its so strong that Loma almost lost balance.
Teofimo hit him on the side of the head several times, and Lomachenko flew away. I believe that it was then that he realized the power of the blows, which lies in the fists of my son. He was scared as it was the perfect fight for us to win by knockout. It’s all about his style – back and forth, back and forth. But in the last eight rounds this asshole has only gone back, back and back again, “Teofimo Lopez Sr. said in an interview with YouTube channel Johnny’s Fight Palace.
Recall that Lopez Sr. also picked up an opponent for Lomachenko for the next fight.
