The undisputed world lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez is pleased to have received respect from the boxing community after defeating Vasily Lomachenko. However, the 23-year-old boxer claims that he is not going to stop there.
“I got respect. People tell me I’m a bad guy. What I did was not easy with a pound-for-pound fighter like Lomachenko, but we made it look easy. Everything was definitely different. I have a lot more fans and it’s nice to see that all of this is due to my accomplishments.
Now it’s time to progress and grow. Saul Alvarez, after his fight with Callum Smith, came up to me and congratulated me. We had a meeting, he invited me to the hall. It was great to do that and become the 2020 fighter, “Teofimo Lopez told ESPN.
We will remind, Lopez also spoke about a potential fight with Jervonta Davis.
