Teofimo Lopez Sr., father and coach of undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, says his fight against former lightweight champion Vasily Lomachenko made his son even better.
“Everything will be fine. We will go back to what we do best. We will look at the styles of other fighters and figure out how we will defeat them. My son will return to rip. You will see another Teofimo Lopez, I answer.
The fight with Lomachenko helped us a lot. These assholes are behind, they don’t understand that we are getting better. It’s like finishing high school when you’re still a junior. We have already made progress. People don’t understand that when you take risks, you get better. The fight with Loma made us better, “said Teofimo Lopez Sr.in an interview with Johnny’s Fight Palace YouTube channel.
We will remind, Lopez Sr. also said that during the battle he and his son “froze” Lomachenko.
