It’s Vasiliy Lomachenko’s turn to speak to the media.
Lomachenko is gearing up for his big title unification bout with Teofimo Lopez. Lomachenko is the WBA (Super) and WBO Lightweight Champion, while Lopez holds the IBF gold. Many have called this the most highly-anticipated boxing match of the year.
There is some beef that has been brewing between Lomachenko and Lopez to add to the anticipation. Lopez has said that he feels Lomachenko is beatable and is closer to the end of his boxing career than people think. Lomachenko’s camp believes the trash talk stems from jealousy.
Lomachenko is hoping to become the first man to defeat Lopez. Going into the bout, Lopez has a perfect pro boxing record of 15-0. Lomachenko is 14-1 with his lone loss coming in just his second pro fight against Orlando Salido via split decision.
Lomachenko will be speaking to media members today, October 6. While Lomachenko is known for being reserved, he has responded to Lopez with a warning. What will he have to say to reporters during the Zoom call? You can watch the live stream above courtesy of the official YouTube channel of Top Rank Boxing. You can catch the live stream beginning at 3:30 p.m. ET.
