The absolute lightweight champion (up to 61.2 kg), American Teofimo Lopez (16-0-0, 12 KO) believes that the public did not appreciate his victory over the Ukrainian star Vasyl Lomachenko (14-2-0, 10 KO), in fight with which he was an outsider 4 to 1.
Thus, the authoritative magazine The Ring did not remove Lomachenko from its “pound-for-pound” rating, placing him on the 7th line – right behind Lopez.
“I think I should be in the top five. And what I really don’t like is that Loma is right behind me. Take it away. It’s just crazy to see his name there, ”Lopez told Talk Sport.
