Speaking to Fight Hub TV, Judah had the following to say on Lomachenko vs. Lopez (via Boxing News 24).
“I’m not saying he is going to knock Lomachenko out, but I give him a little more credit than that. It’s going to be a tough fight. I don’t know how he’s going to dissect him or how he’s going to beat him or even if he’s going to win. I’m just saying he’s [Teofimo], a young guy that is hungry and determined. I would hope that Lomachenko goes in there. Don’t play with these young guys. They aren’t here to play. That’s the moral to the story of the whole message. These young boys are not here to play. So when you’re fighting them, you got to put a little seasoning on your spice, and you’re coming to fight these young boys. Take that into consideration. They ain’t coming to play.”
Lomachenko is the WBA (Super) and WBO Lightweight Champion, while Lopez holds the IBF gold. The two will collide inside the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event is set to air live on the major ESPN network.
In his last outing back on August 31, 2019, Lomachenko defeated Luke Campbell via unanimous decision. He won the WBC Lightweight Title but he later vacated the gold.
As for Lopez, he made short work of Richard Commey, scoring the second-round TKO victory to capture the IBF Lightweight Championship.
