Honduran boxer Teofimo López lightweight champion of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), once again challenged the WBA and WBO lightweight champion, the Ukrainian Vasyl Lomachenko.
The catracho boxer is not worried about the European experience and assured that he is prepared for what will be his litmus test and the opportunity to climb to the top of this discipline.
The contest between lightweight champion Lomachenko and IBF champion Teofimo will be rescheduled, as it was scheduled for Saturday May 30 at Madison Square Garden in New York, and it has been postponed due to the coronavirus.
“Everyone is talking about that fight,” Lopez told ESPN. “These guys are scared of Lomachenko before they even enter the ring. They see their footwork and they’re already shaking. And they just fought over a salary, “Teofimo said in statements to the boxingnews24.com portal about past opposition to Vasiliy.
They see the danger. It is proven that I can hit, I am fast, I can catch and shoot. I do all these things. It’s not just power and speed. It is the intelligence that I have in that ring, “said the boxer who defended the colors of Honduras in the last Olympic Games in Rio 2016.
Lopez, 22, remains undefeated after 15 fights, including 12 victories by knockout, while Vasyl Lomachenko, 32, has 14 victories, ten of them by KO, and a single loss.
