Teofimo Lopez on Loma Rematch: F--k Him!, I'm The King Now!

WBC Franchise, WBA, WBO, IBF lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez has little to no interest in a rematch with Vasiliy Lomachenko.

Last Saturday night at the MGM Grand's Conference Center in Las Vegas, Lopez won a twelve round unanimous decision over Lomachenko to unify their respective world titles.

Lomachenko's team had mentioned their desire to secure a rematch. The two-time Olympic gold medal winner believes that he did enough to win the decision.

Lopez does not see any reason to face him again.

"For what? F--k him," Lopez told TMZ. "I won fair and square. I not only beat him at his own game, but being off for ten months and fighting the guy people said was the best pound-for-pound.

"I went up to him [after the fight] and I said good fight. I grabbed his father, I said safe travels … pretty much saying goodbye to them because I knew I won.

"But he didn’t want to give me back that same gesture -- instead he just started laughing like... [he's thinking] what am I doing here [in their corner]. So, I was like whatever, I did my part. The fighting's done, I whooped your ass … you cut me, head-butted me and sh-t but it's fine."

Lopez was annoyed with Lomachenko for not attending the post-fight press conference.

"That just shows what kind of champion he really is," Lopez said.

And Lopez made it clear that he's not going to allow other boxers in his weight class to call the shots - whether it's Lomachenko, Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis or Devin Haney.

"I'm the king now," Lopez said ... "I've always been the king. I was just the underground king. Now, I've been crowned."

[QUOTE=factsarenice;20836187]Marquez and Salido didn't want to take that chance again. No shame in that, it's a big risk.[/QUOTE] They were low-balling Salido with the money offered for the rematch. Sean Gibbons is on record about it.

Marquez and Salido didn't want to take that chance again. No shame in that, it's a big risk. [QUOTE=ShoulderRoll;20833692]It was pretty arrogant of the Lomachenko side not to have a rematch clause in the contract.[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=TonyGe;20836169]Which is something I've never understood when it's a champion who doesn't have the clause in their contract. Maybe it's fianancial.[/QUOTE] It's financial to BOB....Bob doesn't do rematches. Blowing out the two best makes every other fight just seem ok…

[QUOTE=KeepAmericaGr8t;20835094]People are calling Loma arrogant and not this El Telefono kid? Holy cow![/QUOTE] Yeah I noticed that too. If you don't like arrogance then you can't like Lopez. I wonder where all this talk of arrogance is coming from? I've…

[QUOTE=SUBZER0ED;20834627]If Lopez had wiped the floor with Lomachenko, I could see the rematch turn down. But the fight was competitive, despite Vasyl taking more than half the fight to get started. And if the shoulder injury story prior to the…
