Vasyl Lomachenko, the lightweight boxing champion of the world (WBA, WBO, WBC) shared his thoughts about the future union fight against Teofimo Lopez.
"I'd love to punch him hard. Really, really hard. I'd like to kick his ass real good. Lopez, Sr. seems to be thinking they are superstars. Like Tyson Fury. This is why they they brag all the time, and this is why there are loads of trash talk coming from them. But actually, they are not stars. They just act like ones. Yes, it's true. I don't like them both - first of all, because they talk some total nonsense about me all the time. They talk about me too much", he said as quoted by ESPN.
"How will such a long period outside the ring affect me? I don't know for sure, I've never had anything like that before - I mean, no fights for entire year. We're going to figure it out on Saturday (on the bout day, October 17, - 112 International). I guess we're going to have a chess game in the ring, - at least, this is the way I see it. I'm totally focused on the fight. No other thoughts. There will be only me, him, referee, judges and TV staff. Well, and there are, of course, four titles at stake", Lomachenko said.
