Teofimo Lopez Says He Has “No Reason” To Give Lomachenko a Rematch

Last updated

Unified Lightweight Champion Teofimo Lopez recently appeared on BBC’s 5 Live Boxing with Costello and Bunce. The fighter would discuss a number of topics during the show, including a potential rematch with Lomachenko, the Ryan Garcia vs Luke Campbell fight and how he ranks the other fighters in the Lightweight division.

“No reason for a rematch whatsoever” Lopez began when asked if he would offer Lomachenko a rematch for the Lightweight titles. “For what ,you know? There’s no reason to. We beat him, we out-boxed him we beat him fair and square.

“We beat him clearly” Lopez would continue. “It wasn’t like a situation like…had this fight been a split decision or something like that? Then yes, we could talk about something. If they said a majority decision [same thing]. This turned out to be a unanimous decision for a reason. We out-boxed the boxer. We beat the boxer, now it’s on to bigger and better things.”

Teofimo Lopez vs Vasyl Lomachenko

Teofimo Lopez won the IBF Lightweight Title from Richard Commey back in December 2019. Lopez took the win, inside of Madison Square Garden, in the second round via TKO. Teofimo Lopez would then go on to win the WBA (Super), WBO, and The Ring Lightweight Titles from Vasyl Lomachenko in October 2020. As mentioned, this was via unanimous decision.

Lopez is now 16-0 in his pro fight career, and he has a list of fighters who could challenge him for the Titles going forward. The Lightweight Champion previously noted that he sees Lomachenko as second in the rankings, although he will not give him a rematch for the belts. Lopez also stated “Number three, would probably be Ryan Garcia. Four would be Devin Haney, and Number Five would be ’˜Tank’ Davis.’
