Is Teofimo Lopez Lomachenko’s Toughest Fight?
Later this week, Vasyl Lomachenko will possibly fight his biggest challenge in Teofimo Lopez. Now, I for one am very excited to watch this fight however I’m not seeing a lot of hype around this fight which is odd since Lomachenko is one of the best boxers on the planet - an argument can be made that he is the best boxer. Now, he fights Teofimo Lopez this Saturday but is Lopez Lomachenko’s hardest challenge? Let’s find out.
I respect Teofimo Lopez. I think this will be a great fight and something for boxing fans to invest and get their money’s worth yet this fight also brings a lot of questions. One of them being, is Lomachenko fading? Over 400 fights in his amateur fight and at the age of 32, one has to wonder if Lomachenko is starting to wind down his boxing career. This could be a very significant factor in the fight too as Teofimo Lopez is only 21 which is utterly insane.
Now, is Teofimo Lopez Lomachenko’s hardest challenge? In my opinion, no he’s not yet I’m still expecting a good performance from the overlooked Lopez. I believe Lopez has more of a chance than people believe but I also believe Lopez has a lot of experience still to learn which isn’t a bad thing but the undefeated fighter might receive his first loss come Saturday night.
