We don’t know when the fight will happen with the current Coronavirus pandemic but eventually Vasiliy Lomachenko (14-1) and Teofimo Lopez (15-0) will meet in a lightweight unification.
In order to pass time while most of the country is under lockdown, Lopez really held a Q&A session on Reddit.com to give fans a perspective of what’s this Lem to be a professional boxer.
He started off the session by the explaining what a typical day of training entails.
“Every day is a different schedule. One day will be wake up, have breakfast, morning stretch, then go do cardio. Drink about two gallons of water every day. After that, we rest, recover, lay down, watch movies, whatever. Then before I go to my second session of boxing, an hour and a half prior, I'll eat again and then do the boxing. After boxing, back to the house, rest, relax, take my supplements for recovery. All legal by the way! Then we have a third session, late night session, physical training, strength and conditioning, stuff like that.
Three sessions, 2-3 per day, in camp,” Lopez wrote.
A fight against Lomachenko is just the start of an ambitious plan for the 22-year-old IBF champion. If all goes well in the indication bout, Lopez wants to continue to face top opposition.
“Lomachenko, maybe Josh Taylor, and Jose Ramirez. Or it'd be Lomachenko, Devin Haney, Jose Ramirez, any of those guys. I don't know if they would put Taylor in with me, but I think they would. I don't see why not, but they just signed 'em, maybe hold him off for a bit. I think they signed him for Ramirez. I'll eat em up,” Lopez explained.
