Teofimo Lopez Sr: My Son Ends Lomachenko, Becomes P4P #1!

Teófimo López Sr., the father and trainer of IBF lightweight champion Teofimo Lopez, is confident that his son is going to demolish WBO, WBA world champion Vasiliy Lomachenko next year.

This past Saturday night in New York City, Lomachenko was ringside at Madison Square Garden as he watched Lopez crush Richard Commey in two rounds to capture the IBF belt.

Now the stage is set for Lopez and Lomachenko to fight each other in the early months of 2020.

Lopez has been chasing the fight with Lomachenko since last year.

Both boxers are promoted by Top Rank, who are eager to get them together in the ring.

Lomachenko, regarded by some as the best pound for pound fighter in the sport, will be a solid favorite when he faces Lopez in the ring.

But Lopez Sr. has no doubt about the outcome.

“Two years ago I told people that we were going to take Lomachenko's head off, because he is a lying champion. He has never faced a fighter like my son. We come very hungry. We are Indians, we come from the pure blood of the Indians and we are going to show Latin America that the Indians are more powerful than the Europeans," Lopez Sr. told George Ebro.

“In March or April of 2020, we will end Lomachenko and we will end him in less than five rounds. I teach my son a style that is not styled in boxing: stay in front of the opponent, pick off the punches and use the fists of the opponent to our advantage. The only one I've seen who has done it is Floyd Mayweather.

"God is putting us in the right fights. After this [fight with Lomachenko] we can fight at 140 pounds. And if he beats Lomachenko, he can be considered the number one pound per pound in the world. We are going to do it."

He's an Angel Garcia knock off. The difference is he's not as entertaining as Angel.

[QUOTE=Tatabanya;20258901]For the writer, the name Teófimo López deserves to have its "o"s accented only in the first sentence. Then they are degraded to normal "o"s.[/QUOTE] It should have accents at all times.

[QUOTE=officermaloy;20260161]Hopefully. But there is observation from some boxing fans that Loma's punching output was much less during last 3 fight. No more "pity pat". It could mean slight decline in stamina. I think Lopez fight will show if it's really…
