The upcoming fight, between, Teofimo Lopez and Vasyl Lomachenko, is without doubt, one of the most unmissable and eagerly awaited Boxing Blockbusters of the year.
The unification contest between the WBA, WBO and Ring Magazine Lightweight Champion, Loma, and the IBF Champ, Lopez, making his first defence of his title, is one of the most hotly anticipated fights, as Loma looks to make his fourth defence of his title
Ukraine’s double Olympic Champion and 3 weight King, bids to become the undisputed lightweight Champion, by defeating Lopez and snatching his title, also cementing his place as one of the top, pound for pound fighter’s on the planet.
While there is no doubt, Lopez brings an impressive 15 streak undefeated record to the table and has a slight, height, reach and weight advantage, in my opinion Loma, has the quality, class and sheer speed of movement, to overcome his younger opponent, making him the favourite on the night.
Lopez has stated in public, that he believes he has the superior punching power, as well as a smarter Boxing brain than people give him credit for, however Lomachenko, brings his remarkable, amateur pedigree of 396 wins, giving him the grounding, experience and ringcraft to overcome his young , hungry opponent, however with no rematch clause in place, Lopez knows he will have to give his all to overcome the favourite.
With all the ingredients of a classic, as well as, youth versus experience, let’s hope this long awaited match up, lives up to the hype.. Can’t wait !!
