Lomachenko wants Kambosos to be defeated, Lopez is suddenly defeated

Third-place world champion Vasiliy Lomachenko admitted he was surprised by Teofimo Lopez being shocked by George Kambosos last Saturday night at the Hulu Theater in Las Vegas.

Last year, Lomachenko’s top spot in the 135 kg division was derailed when he lost to Lopez in the decisive twelfth round – who in his first bout was defeated by the incompetent Kambosos.

Kambosos currently holds the WBA, WBC Franchise, IBF, IBO lightweight titles.

Lomachenko was back from losing to Lopez, when he returned to the ring in June with a fierce save from Masayoshi Nakatani.

He will continue to build his path to another world title when he takes on former champion Richard Commey.

And the two-time Olympic gold medalist is certainly eager for a shooting world title at Kambosos in 2022.

“For the belt, of course. That’s my goal in boxing now. Undisputed world champion, this is my driving force,” Lomachenko told Sky Sports.

“We shall see [if a fight with Kambosos will happen]. Of course, I want this fight, but first I have a fight on December 11, and my focus is on this fight. After this war, I can talk about my future. “

Lomachenko gave Kambosos a shot to relieve his sadness, but in the end he felt Lopez would walk away with a win.

“Before the game, I gave the Kambosos a few chances, but of course I think Lopez will win this one,” Lomachenko said. “But that’s what it is. This is the boxing life.”

Before his defeat last year, Lomachenko was considered one of the best-earning weightlifters in the world.

The two-time defeated boxer said it would be up to the public to decide if he still deserves such high recognition.

“I don’t want to talk about myself,” Lomachenko said. “It’s a question for the fans, it’s a question for people who understand boxing. But if you’re talking about my skills, I always try to show the best style, the best skill. mine.”
