Teofimo Lopez Jr. (16-0, 12 KOs) is now looking for new challenges, and he is not willing to face his former nemesis Vasyl Lomachenko inside the ring once again, BoxingNews 24 reports.

He was very specific in his reasons for not giving Lomachenko a second chance.

Because I am going to be a d***. And because everyone was being a d*** to me and my father," Lopez Jr. stated.

The new undisputed lightweight champion is willing to find "bigger and better" things in his professional career.

I am looking for bigger and better things. This is now where I determine how my future is going to look like and how I determine it, and it is not going to look like a cherry-pick," he added.

As we reported earlier, Lomachenko expects his next boxing bout to take place in spring 2021

Loma is recovering well. He is already running and has started training little by little. So, he is good. He wants to get back in the ring as soon as possible. The doctor told him he can start full training, even with his shoulder, doing pushups and pull-ups, by the end of January,” his manager, Egis Klimas, stated.
